Pegasus Rising UK & US Tour, Valentines Slowjams 3 Mixtape and New Jodeci Bootleg MP3

22/02/2010
Hudson Mohawke, the precocious Glaswegian who put himself on the map with the smart, glossy, hyper-real debut album Butter in October last year is finally setting off for a long overdue UK tour, along with vocalist and collaborator Olivier Daysoul.

Read on for more info, his third installment in his Valentines Slowjams Mixtape series and a new bootleg of Jodeci in the vein of his Ooops release.

This UK tour (codenamed 'Pegasus Rising') will see Hudson playing key shows at the old Factory Records HQ (FAC251) in Manchester as well as the Detonate indoor festival in Nottingham and kick starting May bank holiday by celebrating Dummy magazine’s birthday at the Macbeth, London.

Anyone who has seen Hudson recently will know that his live show promises a joyride through genres and tempos - led by one of the new masters of the scene. Accompanying him on the road will be theatrical ringmaster and host Olivier Daysoul who contributed his vocal talents to the album including the anthemic ‘Joy Fantastic’ & the swingbeat infused 'I Just Decided', and Hepcat Radio originator miss Mamiko Motto on several of the dates.

If you can't wait til April, Hudson will also play A Taste Of Sonar on March 6th and also support Phoenix (fresh from picking up their Grammy award) on March 30th, both at the Roundhouse, London.

Also - Check the images on the left for previews of Konx Om Pax's video for Joy Fantastic, which was premiered at the LuckyMe event at the GFT in Glasgow last weekend.
