    Hudson Mohawke

    Scottish producer Hudson Mohawke was already a big deal in the U.K. as a beat-maker and one half of TNGHT, but being called in to help produce Yeezus opened a whole new world.

    He’s been working with Kanye since about 2012, and in 2015 HudMo told Grantland that in the three years he had worked with Ye he’d seen a lot of people “come and go or just drop off [his] radar—you never see them again!” But the relationship between the Scotsman and the Chicago rapper has endured, despite some recent disagreements.

    “It took me a couple of years to get into a position where I can be like, ‘Why don’t you come and work in my studio?’ It feels good.”
