Last Friday, I brought you RL Grime and Salva’s edit of Kanye’s ‘Mercy’, the tune of the moment. This Friday, we have a Hudson Mohawke version as played on Benji B in the early hours of Thursday morning. Robotic hypnotic. ‘Mercy’ just keeps on giving. Of course, Hud Mo played additional instruments on the original so it’s only right he gets to do what he likes with it.
