SHMOHAWK: HUDMO’S ROCK(ING) OPERA

Fresh from producing Azealia’s Jumanji, Scottish turntablist, HudMo – not to be confused with compatriot reality TV mentalist, SuBo – thugs out early 20th century Italian opera with a remix of O mio babbino caro; a theatrical temper-tantrum from Giacomo Puccini’s 1918 Florentine comedy, Gianni Schicchi, where female lead, Lauretta, threatens to solve that age-old bugbear of father-forbidden love by drowning herself. As you do.

GTA III – 10th Anniversary Trailer – O Mio Babbino Caro (Remix by Hudson Mohawke) by odlum

Taken from the soundtrack of Rockstar Games car-jack classic, Grand Theft Auto III, it’s one of the many nostalgia-lathered money-grabs that Rockstar have planned for the 10th anniversary of the murder porn simulator that tainted the minds of a generation (our generation). Rad.

Meanwhile, assume that Hudson has some sort of depraved penchant for fat ladies singing and brace yourself SuBo’s tabloid kiss-and-tell (pump and dump).
