Nick Hook is NYCâ€™s waviest resident: an in-demand collaborator, producer extraordinaire, and all around provider of vibes whoâ€™s lent his touch to projects from Run The Jewels, Young Thug, and countless others, all while building a creative community around his studio, thespacepit, in Greenpoint. Now the redheaded kingpin steps forward with his Relationships LP on Foolâ€™s Gold, a 16 track album of collaborations that are unconventional, unexpected and all-the-way live (literally: each song was recorded in-person with Nick behind the boards, a refreshing move in the email verse era).
Featuring a festival-worthy lineup of new school rap upstarts (21 Savage, Novelist, ILoveMakonnen) and fellow beat radicals (Prefuse 73, Hudson Mohawke, the late DJ Rashad), Relationships isnâ€™t just the worldâ€™s greatest party guestlist, but a chronicle of Nickâ€™s year long, after-midnight vision questâ€”the sound of a producer breaking through the chrysalis, killing the ego, and raising the bar. Put your phone down and dive in.
