CRITIC REVIEWS

90
NME

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

The Needle Drop
On TNGHT's debut EP, Hudson Mohawk and Lunice pull together five of 2012's most essential bangers.
86
Beats Per Minute

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

85
Pitchfork

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.

Crack Magazine
Lunice and Hudson Mohawke have fashioned something extraordinary: an EP of storming, molten electronics and shattering drums which is perhaps only eclipsed by the promise of a longer outing.
80
Spin
Bass-wielding beatists Lunice and Hudson Mohawke serve up future-rap: wonked synths, 808 kicks, creepy FX, crunk cuts.
80
Consequence of Sound

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.

Sputnikmusic
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.

Resident Advisor
Their debut recording, a split release between Warp and LuckyMe, is a short EP—five tracks long, it only clocks in at 16 minutes total—but it packs plenty of punch.

AllMusic
It's too developed, too rich with energizing rhythms and thrilling little fillips, to be considered a glorified beat tape. At 16 minutes, it's just about the ideal length, as 40 or more minutes of the stuff might be just a bit excessive.

FACT Magazine

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.

70
PopMatters
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.

The Line of Best Fit
The fact is, every track that TNGHT have come up with here is as good a hip-hop instrumental as an MC could wish for.

TNGHT's self-titled EP is essentially a collection of electronic and quite experimental hip hop beats, and for the most part I think it's really solid. The samples are really cool and the electronic fusion is just great. It'd be amazing to see someone rap over these beats. I guess my only real complains are that the EP doesn't change in style that much, the mixing can be a bit wild even if that's the point, and... I don't know man, you just gotta get someone on these beats. I like the ... read more

This might be the worst EP/album I have ever exposed my ears to. This EP is so bad, there literally isn’t anything on this EP which would make listening to it worthwhile, it is that bad. It sounds like they haven’t done any mixing whatsoever. It sounds like they just found a few sounds from a basic sample pack and just threw it in there and called it a day, it is that bad. I’d recommend you stay as far away from this EP as you can, unless you want to have an ear-grating ... read more
