Nick Hakim: I Don't Know + Lift Me Up
Just before taking our "trip" to New York this past June, I had become introduced, and infatuated with Nick Hakim's gorgeous music. It was in Yours Truly's film, where Hakim first struck me; the film followed Hakim in his modest Bed-Stuy apartment while he taught us about his creative musical process.
Coincidentally, June saw us subletting in Bed-Stuy where our soundtrack was filled with late rooftop summer evenings accompanied by his sultry voice; a truly fitting pair.
Now that New York has evolved into my home, I have been exposed to some of this city's most talented musicians; new musical discovery is in abundance here, and it has been a truly spoiling experience getting to know it more in depth. Nick Hakim is one of those musicians whose talents have become more recognized and spread, especially in these past months. In anticipation for his upcoming Sept 16th release, Where Will We Go Pt. 2, new songs keep trickling out - two of which have recently received features in Vogue and NPR. Listen to "I Don't Know" + "Lift Me Up".
