Hudson Mohawke and James Blake are two of the biggest producers to come out of the U.K. in recent times. According to a Twitter exchange between the two, they planned to work together with HudMo having sent Blake instrumentals. HudMo also let slip that he was working with Frank Ocean on new music around the same time.

The tweets began when HudMo responded to a fan praying for a collaboration between himself and Blake.



When this was picked up on by media outlets Blake, who released his latest album The Colour In Anything earlier this year, distanced himself from the suggestion.


This, in turn, led to HudMo clarifying his position.




However, this was seemingly not enough and he came back with another tweet in which he shared a screengrab of an email between himself and Blake regarding their work together.


This tweet led to Blake sharing a note in which he thanked God he and HudMo never got their collaboration off the ground.


HudMo's latest tweet appears to be an attempt to get the previously good natured discussion back on track, away from the eyes of social media.

The FADER has reached out to both James Blake and Hudson Mohawke for comment.
