Nick Hook – Medium Rare with Machinedrum

Tender garage groove from Brooklyn producer's new EP.


Words by: Ruth Saxelby

Nick Hook, the basketball shirt wearing one out of NYC trio Cubic Zirconia who recently worked with HudMo on the beats for Azealia Banks’ Jumanji, has a new solo EP out next week called ‘Without You’. It’s pretty banging but nestled in the centre and entirely appropriately named is Medium Rare, a tender garage groove he cooked up with Berlin-based pal Machinedrum (LuckyMe/Planet Mu). It rumbles along, a little haunted, a little frayed, but warm and sure enough to do malleable things to your mood.

Scion A/V will release Nick Hook’s new EP ‘Without You’ as a free download on the Scion A/V website on 9th October 2012
