Friday night music producers Hudson Mohawke and Lunice, better known under their DJ moniker TNGHT, played a set in Brooklyn and Kanye West showed up. What?

Yeah, you read that right. Two minutes into “Cold,” Yeezy walks out onstage and the crowd goes nuts. West didn’t even have mic, he just riled up concertgoers, and then departs. But it was a glorious 20 seconds. Check it out on the 2:10-minute mark below. 

So who is TNGHT?  The pair, who made their debut at their year’s SXSW, are one of the hottest hip hop dance producers in recent times. Lunice has worked with Azealia Banks and Mohawke collaborated with West on “Mercy.” Alright, so now it makes sense.

Glasgow-based Mohawke and Canadian Lunice released their self-titled debut this summer. Click here to listen to a sample and be amazed.
