This summer, when “trap” became dance music’s hottest trend and Mad Decent signed every artist who used as little as some hip-hop-infused 808 snares, TNGHT put their peers back to work, both releasing better music and calling the genre’s appropriational tendencies into question. On Friday, the duo—Scottish producer Hudson Mohawke, who
recently contributed to Kanye West’s “Mercy” beat, and Canadian Lunice, who was previously best known for his cameo in Azealia Banks’s “212” video and finally lives up to his prodigious
talent here—brings the Music Hall of Williamsburg what should be its best dance party since Mad Decent head honcho Diplo brought his Major Lazer to the venue four months back.
