MIXING IT UP
Mr Hudson | New Track
Mr Hudson's new track "Hey You" is making a splash in the airwaves. The UK garage-inspired banger has everyone talking, including the Four Oh Five who gave him a glowing review here. Have a listen for yourself on Mr Hudson's SoundCloud here. We sense a hit on the horizon! 

Mr Hudson commented on the track, "Sometimes you need to leave a place to write about it, 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 has kicked open the door in the U.S. for U.K. sounds."
