Listen to a Collaborative Track from Nick Hook and Doc Daneeka
- Words: Chris Kokiousis
Relentlessly prolific producer and regular XLR8R advice columnist Nick Hook has joined with Welsh tunesmith Doc Daneeka to form a new side project called Doc:Hook, whose first release "Jacking Dogs" has been made available to stream on SoundCloud. Brawny bass and huge, cracking percussion anchors the finely crafted production's vocal refrain and subtle layers of synth pads—coming from these two professionals, it's an effortlessly impressive slice of house music. Limited to 200 copies, a vinyl version of the track will be made available on October 1 via Play it Down.
