Nick Hakim grew up in Washington DC, went to the Berklee College of Music, and has been based in New York for the last several years. He’s cited diverse influences, from Marvin Gaye and Curtis Mayfield, to Madlib and MF Doom, to the South American folk and DC punk records his family played as influences.
After building a dedicated following on Soundcloud, he released his two-part Where Will We Go EP in 2014. Nick Hakim recorded his debut full-length album Green Twins over the course of a year, experimenting with analog equipment in his bedroom and in Brooklyn studios.
Nick Hakim is back with a new music video for his latest single, “QADIR.” The song is the first from his forthcoming album Will This Make Me Good, set for release May 15 via ATO Records. This album will follow his 2017 debut Green Twins.
