Hudson Mohawke 'Pegasus Rising' UK tour dates

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.

Hudson Mohawke - Pegasus Rising tour

Attracting a whole lotta love with 'Butter', Hudson Mohawke has been courted all over the press from The Guardian to the Sunday Times, gracing the covers of Cookie Scene in Japan and Scottish title The Skinny amongst features in many other worldwide publications.

Hud Mo has received huge support at Radio 1, receiving album of the month on Radio 1 Scotland Vic Galloway's show as well as being heralded 'the future of pop' by Zane Lowe and receiving airplay love from Rob da Bank, Mary Anne Hobbs, Annie Mac, Gilles Peterson, Benji B; even stepping up to the plate for Pete Tong's mammoth 2 hour Essential Mix, a mix which has since seen the blogosphere go wild.

So it's on this platform that Hudson embarks on his first full UK 'Pegasus Rising' tour where he will be playing key shows at the old Factory HQ, FAC251 The Factory in Manchester as well as the Detonate indoor festival in Nottingham and will be kick starting May bank holiday by celebrating Dummy magazine's birthday at the Macbeth.

Anyone who has seen Hudson recently will know that his live show promises a joyride through the most cutting edge genres 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" and 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.

Praise for 'Butter':

"Butter is twitchier than a smoker on a 12-hour flight... For the intrepid listener, though, this is popping candy for the ears." - NME

"His debut album is a brilliantly inventive collision of 80's golden era hip hop, Aphex Twin-style beats, and pop melodies that wouldn't be out of place on an Outkast record." - Q
