I love showcasing artist's where the biggest challenge is choosing which of their songs to write about. Needless to say, I spent an absorbent amount of time trying to decide which of Nick Hakim's songs to pick this week. His discography is that deep, pulling influence ranging from Marvin Gaye to Madlib. Hakim has the rare gift to layer seemingly endless levels of vocal harmonies through infectious melody lines. Marrying new age experimental instrumentals with funk soul and everything else we love here. Hakim doesn't just paint the scene he surrounds you with it. Please make sure to check out his other work. You won't be disappointed I promise. Thanks again for stopping by! Glad to be back from my little hiatus.

About the Curator - Rooknight
It started the fist time I was handed the aux driving around the Chicago suburbs. It evolved over my 3 years of being a radio Dj at Purdue. Now at 23 years old, I’m ready for the next step in my passion for sharing music. Being apart of the Musicto family.
As a musician myself, I’ve met insanely talented artists who just need a break. So, I've made it my mission. Listening to over 600 full albums in the last two years alone, and creating over 20 playlist on my Spotify. I've been searching. There is so much treasure out there, just waiting to be discovered. I’m just tryna make the map.
