New York in demand producer Nick Hook has continued his streak of unique collaborations with young grim artist Novelist.
Novelist says about Nick Hook – “This man gave me a new outlook on life when I met him in New York at 18 years old when I went out there alone. He reiterated to me that FREEDOM starts in the mind and to do what you want with 100% of your energy. I’ve been taking my own time to understand life guys and I wanna say that the race is not for the swift, but remain to be certain in every thing. At times I’ve not been certain about what I want to do with myself but it’s the wise words of good friends and my bible that keep my mind in the right place. Write your plans on your walls and paper, stick to them and don’t stop till the casket drops. Love!”

Inspirational electronic artist John Foxx is set to release all three editions of Cathedral Oceans to be ‘The Complete Cathedral Oceans’ on 30th September. The vinyl release of the trilogy Cathedral Oceans (1997), Cathedral Oceans II (2003) and Cathedral Oceans III (2005) will be accompanied by a 12 X 12″ art print and book containing images and passages from his novel The Quiet man, encased in a hardback book set.
The original front man of Ultravox has been an inspiration within his genre with the likes of Aphex Twin, Simple Minds and Clint Mansell naming Foxx as a main influence.
Watch the trailer here:
The creation of Cathedral Oceans began in 1983 when Foxx was a child singing in a choir at church. His immediate interest in the echoing and reverberation of the sound in the space inspired his music. The old style church music contrasting with the synthesizers forms a unique style that created the masterpiece of ‘The Complete Cathedral Oceans’.

Humor is a multi-talented artist, he fuses a mixture of grime hip-hop, deep/tech house, electronica and 90s R&B. Inspired to produce his own instrumentals after struggling to afford decent beats, he has since honed his craft into a creative and polished sound.
Humor’s hip hop heroes include the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Drake and J Cole, also taking inspiration from grime greats like Kano, Ghetts and Skepta. Starting out freestyling with friends, he has since developed his own formidable style merging speedy flows and vivid lyricism.
