Nick Hook

Fool’s Gold / US

NY Charisma

Many still remember the set from the St Louis redhead at SonarVillage two years ago, which is not unusual as Hook’s sessions always leaves a long lasting impression of his charisma and energy. Popular with his peers, Hook has an enviable ability to attract talent around him, recently releasing an album eloquently entitled “Relationships”, on which he collaborated with the young and promising Novelist, 21 Savage and Bulletproof Dolphin. He will demonstrate his versatility, reputation and DJ skills at Sónar by Night, playing between the concerts of Fat Freddy's Drop and De La Soul.

Nick not only stands out for his own albums and as a DJ, but also (and especially) for his work as a producer of other artists. His production list is something to behold: Run The Jewels, Hudson Mohawke, Azealia Banks, Action Bronson, Baauer, Dj Rashad, Prefuse 73 and ILoveMakkonen are just some of those who have worked closely alongside him. This is due in large part to the work he has carried out from his Space Pit studio in New York’s Greenpoint neighbourhood, the city that has adopted him as their own. Hook is also one of the most illustrious students of the Red Bull Music Academy and was part of the dance rock funk trio Cubic Zirconia.
