new single 'Hey You' - out December 18th.
mix engineer - Anthony Kilhoffer
In his follow up to the stoic "Dancing Thru It", the up-beat "Hey You" finds Hudson in a more optimistic mood. Minimal and romantic, this reminds us of Mr H's London roots despite his current California residency. "Sometimes you need to leave a place to write about it" he muses, "and leaving London has made me miss the London sound, things i was listening to before i left like MJ Cole and Grades. It feels like Disclosure etc have kicked open the door in the US for UK sounds." This wistful three minute snap shot of a first romantic encounter, captures Hudson's wisdom on chat up lines "There's no such thing as a good chat up line. All you can do is say 'hello' " and that lust at first sight moment when you realise you can't "live without" someone even if they're a stranger. In this brave new world where everyone meets digitally "Hey You" seems to capture an old fashioned approach to "lucky" connections in the real world. So another typical Mr Hudson juxtaposition of Old School romance with an up front soundcloud-approved sonic backing. Something old, something new.
