The ‘TNGHT’ EP packs five explosive instrumental hip-hop tracks, every one dripping with each producer’s trademark sonic flourishes.

TNGHT may clock in at under 16 minutes, but it’s the most satisfying quarter-hour blast you’ll hear this year.

Their self-titled debut EP for Warp and LuckyMe spans 16 minutes of some of the year's most brazen, positively huge hip-hop sounds.

Bass-wielding beatists Lunice and Hudson Mohawke serve up future-rap: wonked synths, 808 kicks, creepy FX, crunk cuts.

TNGHT balances Mohawke’s crisp production style, the gloss of a high-end studio, and Lunice’s chopped-and-screwed beats, without any time to overload the work with excess triggers.

Amidst a battlefield of dusty rave, the 1-2 punch of boom-bap, a litany of candy-eyed synths and the tumbling spirals of percussion loops it's hard to not get just a little excited by what's on offer here.

In short, it’s big, dumb, and a lot of fun, but the overriding feel to TNGHT is that it feels closer to being the start of something great than a great record in itself.

Plenty of touchstones from the wonky/purple sound scenes, as well as more basic house treatments, combine mercilessly with Luncie and HudMo’s 808 programming to create some of the most pounding, head rattling beats of the year.
