Rumours swirled around the internet a few days ago that Kanye West had signed Scottish producer Hudson Mohawke to his G.O.O.D Music label and it can now be confirmed as Hudson took to his Twitter to announce the news:

Hudson will be signed to the Very Good Beats label which is the production side of Kanye’s G.O.O.D Music imprint. The pair recently worked together as Hudson received production credit for “To The World”, “Bliss” and “The One” which featured on Kanye’s compilation album “Cruel Summer”.

This is a very smart move on Kanye’s part as Hudson possesses one of the more original styles out at the moment and hip hop is definitely in need of a make over, hopefully this will open doors for other producers that push the boundaries such as Lunice, Clams Casino, Ryan Hemsworth, Friendzone and the like.

If your unfamiliar with Hudson’s work you can check out some of his tracks after the jump!
