Exclusive Mixtape: Nick AM

Born in Manhattan, NY to Iranian immigrants who escaped the Islamic revolution, Nick AM struggled with his identity. Through music, Nick found his voice, discovering himself in the influences that would later inform his musical style. His signature romantic spin on lo-fi house beats with a hip-hop edge has now earned him five #1 spots on the Hype Machine popular chart, as well as millions of Spotify streams. To celebrate his upcoming debut EP FATALE, released May 7th via 00-00, we asked Nick to put together a little mix. You catch Nick presenting FATALE live at the opening weekend of NYC’s new venue, The Arc on May 10th.


This mix follows my taste and influences with the 4×4 kick pattern. We start off sensual and seductive with my forthcoming track Annabel, then journey into the warehouse with a few more aggressive tunes. It accelerates to the festival stage with my unreleased remix of Cautious Clay, then smooths out as we venture into the bedroom with another unreleased tune by me. We dive into deeper territory until finally heading back out to the disco, where I bring it home with some soul.”
