Battles x Hudson Mohawke

Battles enlists the one and only Hudson Mohawke to remix “Rolls Bayce”. Hudmo steps into sample mode and chops up bttls into a funky trap/reggaeton inspired beat. Do-beh-do-pah, Do-beh-do-pah, Do-beh-do-pah, beep-boop-beep-bah. Do-beh-do-pah, Do-beh-do-pah, Do-beh-do-pah, Do-beh-do-pah.

La Blogotheque | A Take Away Show Presents : Battles “Wall Street”

I had the pleasure of catching Battles live a few weeks ago here in NYC at Le Poisson Rouge – a very intimate show that was NYC first introduction to their newly trio-ed band. They are a band that always sought to prove that man and machine can co-exist to create some intricate yet visceral music, this time it is was more man vs. machine. Ian Williams was no longer looping his own guitar lines as much but instead triggering them via a new Ableton rig that they incorporated into the live setup. Overall the energy of Battles live has been amplified as you can tell how much more each member has on their plates as they perform their musical acrobatics onstage.

The one and only La Blogoteque had a rare opportunity to capture Battles’ live energy in an unlikely setting – Paris’ City Hall, Hotel de Ville. Quite a juxtaposition of sites and sounds as Battles are architects of such futuristic music.
