Nick Hook’s New York In 60 Seconds

Posted on Sep 11th, 2012 by Mr Goldbar

Red Bull spent a day with Nick Hook, then edited it down to a minute. It’s fun! From flossing to FG Serato records at Turntable Lab, studio to sake bar, it’s all there, conveniently timed with Nick’s appearance (alongside his Cubic Zirconia bandmate Tiombe Lockhart and the talented Jesse Boykins III ) on the cover of this month’s Red Bull Bulletin.

For more Hookemon, check out our dude’s advice column on XLR8R, and cop all the Cubic Zirconia releases on FG (anything less would be uncivilized!)
