The following description comes from the event organizer.

Hudson Mohawke and Nikki Nair join forces on the joint EP, Set The Roof, dropped in May of 2023 on Warp Records on a chipmunk USB stick and DSPs. Following a huge year for both artists that saw Hudmo release, Cry Sugar, his acclaimed third full-length album, and dominate TikTok for a few weeks with his accidental anthem for bad sex (Cbat). Meanwhile Atlanta stalwart Nikki Nair continued to garner notability, releasing with highly regarded labels such as Studio Barnhus, Future Classic, VISION, and a remix of Caroline Polacheck’s “Bunny Is A Rider.”

This EP spawned from a number of hang outs in Hudmo’s Healthfarm studio in Echo Park, Los Angeles — an eerie and funky place to forge what became THE club weapon of the year. The track has been destroying crowds in the tracklist of Bjork, VTSS, Lala, Salute and many more. The title track “Set The Roof” uses a stem of famed writer Tayla Parx, kept from prior sessions but here, mutated into a tweaky, skippy slice of garage with the trademark clarity of Mohawke’s sonics molten with Nair’s playful genre-crossing use of hardware. 

By the end of 2023 “Set The Roof” was featured in many prominent media outlets as one of the “Best Tracks of 2023” including Pitchfork, Crack Mag, The Guardian, and Resident Advisor to name a few. Hudmo and Nair finished off the year performing together for a run of shows in Europe in November, including a fabled set at Boiler Room Festival in Berlin on November 17th. On their forthcoming US Tour they look to continue mesmerizing peak-time dance floors of any size with not only club bangers but also weird and completely unexpected track selections.
