Be sure to check out: Hudson Mohawke

One person to catch this year for those of you looking to hear something different is Scotland's Hudson Mohawke. His releases and promos have been trickling out just since 2005, his particular production style is like nothing I've ever heard before, and I'm really curious to see how it translates into a live show. I want to hear how his earliest interest in turntablism (at age 15 he was the youngest ever UK DMC finalist), mixes with the off-beat, chunky, textured and warped tunes he's released ("Polkadot Blues", "ZOo00OOm"), and his Red Bull Music Academy training.

He's playing at the main festival on Saturday. Check final notifications for stage and time.

Here's a link and tracklist to a mix he did for BBC's Radio 1 November of last year.
