Nick Hook – Against The Clock
Make Music is FACT’s new section devoted to making music anywhere, whether you’re a seasoned producer or a total novice, using an arsenal of analog gear or just your iPhone.
New York producer Nick Hook’s list of collaborators is endless.
He’s produced and engineered tracks for artists as diverse as Novelist, Run The Jewels, Azealia Banks, Hudson Mohawke, Action Bronson and 21 Savage—if you’re an MC and happen to be in New York, you need to check in with him.
Our latest Against The Clock session saw us visit Nick’s New York studio for a glimpse of his creative process, where he created a thumping track that made full use of his studio—while barefoot.
Nick described his very unusual finished track as “Improv, long shit, weird shit. Mistakes”.
Nick Hook will release his new album Relationships this fall via Fool’s Gold. Catch him on his American tour, which starts on September 29.
