It's pretty easy to forget that Avenge The Virgins is a Montreal-based blog, given that we don't really promote any local shows that often. We like to encourage local talent a lot, by posting their songs and exposing them to people who may not have heard their music, but we're kind of lacking on the show promotion thing.

Well, recently, it's come to my attention that a few local promoters that I dig are bringing the very talented Hudson Mohawke to our shores, so I figured that I might as well show a little bit of love to the 514, given that I've already posted about the opening acts (and recent LuckyMe fam), the inimitable Hovatron & Lunice.

I've included the details, and I wrote a few words about each producer/dj so those who aren't familiar with them can get a little heads-up. This show is bound to be a hit, given the amount of raw talent that's going to be in that room. These guys are devoted to producing, and have an almost freaky obsession with synths and bleepy sounds. Anyone livin' in Montreal who has a fondness for sub-bass and innovative and danceable glitchy electronic music should be at this show. If not, the terrorists win. Even if you aren't too crazy about the songs that I've posted tonight, give it a shot. It's pretty cheap, compared to a lot of the trash being promoted these days, and you're definitely going to have a great time. At the very least, blaze a dutchie and take a chance. You won't regret it.

Hudson Mohawke

Hudson Mohawke, or Hudmo, as he's most commonly known, is an electronic music prodigy. He was the youngest UK DMC champion, and was signed to Warp records with almost no songs in his repertoire. Since then, he's become something of a DIY icon, founding LuckyMe & just being plain awesome in general. His music is the purest form of instrumental hip-hop, with crazy glitchy soundscapes being conjured out of thin air. Hudmo has inspired legions of followers, and his laid-back and incredibly trailblazing approach to the game makes him a figure to watch in the coming years. Oh yeah, this dude's mixes are nutsbar, too. Guy must smoke a loooooooot of trees.

Hudson Mohawke- Gluetooth

Hudson Mohawke- Velvet Peel


Hovatron, as previously mentioned, is one half of famed Turbo Crunk DJ group Mofomatronix. He's been running, promoting and DJing some of the best parties of the past few years, along with parter in crime Seb Diamond. The recent Night Trackin' events at Velvet are their ideas, and they always come correct. Hovatron is a hardware aficionado from what I hear, and his apartment is apparently stacked with all sorts of controllers + synths. His recent rap & rnb reworks are really spacey and eerie, and the mix he did for Lowriders was amazing. It's kind of hard to describe his sound, but to paraphrase an interview he gave recently, he's just doing him. Good enough for me.

Janet Jackson- Discipline (Hovatron remix)

Shawty Putt ft Too $hort- Dat Baby (Hovatron ERASERHEAD remix)


Red Bull Music Academy graduate, being signed to LuckyMe, releasing ungodly amounts of free music. This dude can't really lose, in my opinion. He comes from the future, a place where people communicate in glitchy stutters and whooping bass sounds. His music sounds like getting a robot high. Either I'm really pretentious with the little descriptions, or it's late and I'm running out of steam. Either way, Lunice's music really speaks for itself. (Out of touch = Hall & Oates on mescaline)
