ToDo ToDay: Hudson Mohawke! March on Washington Film Festival!
Scottish DJ prodigy Hudson Mohawke has grown up since he was named the youngest-ever finalist for the United Kingdom’s DMC DJ Championship at age 15. Now, at 27, he’s matured into a legitimate producer. Mohawke landed production credits on Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music compilation Cruel Summer, then on the egomaniacal hip-hop artist’s chart-topping Yeezus. And he's still found time to work on a new solo album, which he plans to release later this year. Amid all the recording and promotion, he’s still touring the world. Exhausting, maybe, but naps are for kids.
