SONGS HUDSON MOHAWKE WISHES HE MADE

Hudson Mohawke shares five beats he wishes he’d laced...

1. Birdman feat The Clipse 'What Happened To That Boy’ (produced by The Neptunes)
“That was a big influence in terms of making beats out of weird, random sounds. How can this be a pop song?”

 

2. Twista ‘Overnight Celebrity’ (produced by Kanye West)
“The drum programme is crazy. It fits with the sample so well — it feels like one piece.”

3. Justin Timberlake feat T.I. ‘My Love’ (produced by Timbaland)
“When I first heard that, I said, ‘What the fuck? The whole pop genre is going to change after people hear this type of production — basically what underground electronic producers were doing — can become a massive hit'.”

4. OutKast ‘Hey Ya!’ (produced by Andre 3000)
“That's such a bizarre, interesting production for a pop song.”

5. Big L feat Fat Joe ‘The Enemy’ (produced by DJ Premier)
“That was one of my school bus anthems. It's really dark and menacing. That's why I love Premier's production, because it's these really grimy-sounding drums and nasty late-night samples.”
