Scottish producer Hudson Mohawke got signed to the renowned Warp Records with startlingly little previous work. Through a series of self-released tracks and DJ mixes that began getting passed around the Internet, he was able to get featured on the Choices, Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 compilations on Ubiquity Records. From there, his only solo work before getting signed was a 12-inch on local Glasgow label LuckyMe. He has been compared to other "post-Dilla" producers such as Flying Lotus, but his style is much more frenetic and club-oriented than most of this generation. Butter is his long-playing debut, and it combines experimental beatmaking with more poppy vocal-centered tracks.
