In this video from an exclusive Scion Streaming Radio Event, Nick sat down with Blu Jemz and Star Eyes to talk about how he’s parlayed his Midwestern work ethic and sunny personality into a position as one of NYC’s dance music’s most beloved characters.
When he’s not pouring sake shots or offering sage advice to XLR8R readers, NYC’s Nick Hook can be found playing keys and doing production work for Azaleia Banks, Drop the Lime and L-Vis 1990. Since his own band Cubic Zirconia has gone on hiatus, this ginger-haired powerhouse has concentrated on building his studio and kicking off his solo DJ/production career, opening for the likes of TNGHT and Modeselektor and unleashing the nine-track Without You EP for Scion, featuring big collabs with El-P, Gaslamp Killer and Machinedrum—and it’s free!
