Rhythm Roulette with Nick Hook
Even Nick didn't know what direction he was going to take this one
We’re convinced that there’s no type of music Nick Hook isn’t capable of masterminding. The St. Louis producer went from Cubic Zirconia founder to live MPC sets to now creating music for other artists as well as himself. He also co-produced the first single from our compilation tape. He’s not afraid to try new things from scratch and that’s what made him such a prime candidate for our next episode of Rhythm Roulette.
Hitting up two shops in NYC, Nick Hook ends up with Love Sculpture’s Blues Helping, Ronnie Foster’s Sweet Revival, and a Gordon Henderson & U Convention 45. As a lover of the technology behind the music, Nick runs the samples through some modules until it’s just right to his liking. He also finds time to have a little fun, adding effects to a weather report sample he recorded off of the radio. You can tell that once Nick finds a starting place, his mind runs in a million different ways at once so he tries out each direction to see what fits best. Watch Nick cooking up in the lab above and peep the final beat below.
