The result of a partnership between Serato, Ninja Tune, and Hook, the Collage V.1 EP will see a a 2x12 vinyl release as part of the Serato Pressing project on December 17, with Ninja Tune set to offer an extended digital version of the EP as well.
In the meantime, Hook has launched a new web documentary series, I Wish I Could be in the NBA, to coincide with the release.
