Born in Washington, D.C., singer/songwriter and producer Nick Hakim grew up in a household overflowing with musical diversity and cites influences ranging from Marvin Gaye and Curtis Mayfield, to Madlib and MF Doom, to South American folk and DC punk. His debut project, 2014's Where Will We Go, Pt. 1 (EP) and Where Will We Go, Pt. 2 (EP), released through his own imprint (Earseed Records) went on to earn critical praise from NPR and The New York Times.
It was in May 2017 that he released his debut full-length, Green Twins. “We wanted to imagine what it would have sounded like if RZA had produced a Portishead album. We experimented with engineering techniques from Phil Spector and Al Green’s Back Up Train, drum programming from RZA and Outkast, and were listening to a lot of The Impressions, John Lennon, Wu-Tang, Madlib, and Screaming Jay Hawkins.” Green Twins was an experimental step forward with emotional heft gleaned from his experiences in the years since the first EPs.
Nick is currently based in Queens, New York and part of the enigmatic jazz ensemble, The Onyx Collective.
Duendita is an artist from Queens, based between New York City and Berlin. Her work is guided by her spirituality and a love for the human experience.
Her EP "direct line to My Creator" was independently released in November of 2018. Described as a "one-of-a-kind debut, filled with small details, warm soul, and great emotional depth" by Pitchfork, she is currently recording new music, birdwatching or on tour.
Zenizen is the child of Opal Hoyt, who found herself developing her own project after playing in the Brooklyn music scene for a number of years. Born in Alaska, adopted by white parents and raised between Vermont, Jamaica, DC and New York, she is constantly looking to understand life through experience. The project's sound is a mix of R&B, soul, indie rock and jazz with a live show that evolves based on who's contributing at any given time but always anchored by Opal's distinct vocals and drive as a bandleader--a celebration of self-expression & reflection. Zenizen is also gearing up to realize their debut LP as a follow-up to the 'Australia' EP whose physical is available from Don Giovanni Records.
