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 to praise from outlets like The FADER, Pigeons & Planes, Interview, Stereogum, Line of Best Fit, Consequence of Sound and more.

He’s toured with Maxwell, How To Dress Well, KING and more; and appeared on the DC emcee and producer Oddisee’s 2015 album The Good Fight.
