You might have heard of a badass little place in Australia that goes by the name of Bondi Beach. It’s a gem of a spot on the map, well known for its laid back lifestyle and surfer-ready waves. But there’s something else this sweet coastal hangout is recognised for producing – and that’s one of Australia’s most promising DJ/producers, Hook N Sling.
Yet while this talent hails from what you might call a more-than-mellow scene, it would be a mistake to equate his music as such. On the contrary, Hook N Sling’s ascent has been single-mindedly driven, and backed by meticulously crafted productions. Tracks like "Take You Higher" (with Goodwill) and "Reason" (with NERVO) attest to it, clocking over 10m combined YouTube views and winning Hook the support of Tiësto, Sander Van Doorn and Nicky Romero to name a few. As have his transformative remixes for headliners like Calvin Harris, Miike Snow, Wolfgang Gartner, Krewella and Kaskade. and his thoughtful reimaginations for compatriots Miami Horror and The Presets.
His single, "Magnet", with long-time David Guetta collaborator, Chris Willis, is his latest offering – a track that exemplifies his own brand of music with dance floor precision, artistic substance and mass appeal. Co-written with GRAMMY nominated writing duo, Jeremy "Kinetics" Dussolliet and Tim "One Love" Sommers (B.o.B "Airplanes"), the single shows the same hallmarks of success as his recent releases, cracking the Beatport top 20 and conquering American airwaves courtesy of BPM/SiriusXM and a growing list of others.
In the near future, look forward to collaborations with upcoming vocalist RAS, ex-Bondi-neighbours Sneaky Sound System, and the one and only Axwell with the long-awaited, "Tokyo By Night".
When, exactly, remains a mystery. Be it Hook’s laidback origins or his uncompromisingly high bar for excellence, he’s in no hurry.
