ABOUT NICK HAKIM
Nick Hakim creates soulful downtempo music that incorporates elements of jazz, funk and r&b. Born in Washington, D.C. the singer-songwriter and producer attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music where he carefully studied the theoretical foundations; in his second of three years there, he finally began recording himself, resulting in his first, two-part EP, the somber, depression-fueled Where Will We Go, according to Paste Magazine.
He sites some of his musical influences to the likes of Marvin Gaye and Curtis Mayfield, to Madlib and MF Doom, to South American folk and DC punk. Hakim definitely does not play by the rules rather chooses to make music that is far from generic. We can’t wait to see what’s next for this talented up-and-coming artist!
