"State Machine" is inspired by the human apparatus which is a complex 'machine' capable of an extremely wide range of 'states' (as in conditions with respect to circumstances). As 'machines' we can relate to one another through these rich and meaningful 'states'. They help to define and shape the paths which we travel throughout our lives.

This album in and of itself is meant to be a stateful sonic journey, traversing a variety of genres, moods and styles (from angst riddled raps to relaxing soulful instrumentals).

Nick's 4th full length release features 17 original songs (50 mins) including gems from A.Dd+, Bavu, Crew54 and LOEGz.

  • UGK - One Day (NickNack Pimp C Tribute Remix)

I have been a Pimp C fan ever since I heard the first word of "Pocket Full of Stones" uttered from Chad's mouth. For me, like most folks, I was hooked when I heard his southern drawl and delivery. He has a way of rapping that literally sounds like he is talking to you.

The other thing you have to keep in mind is that Pimp C and Bun came out when not a whole lot was coming out of Texas. So for a young Texan into rap circa early 90s, I found their music extremely appealing. In fact, it sort of became the soundtrack for my teenage years.

Not only that, but Pimp C specifically repped Texas harder than ANYONE I have ever seen or heard. Who else do you know that can make a convincing argument that Atlanta isn't a part of the South? He officially made it cool to be a Texan.

My hats off to Pimp C. Condolence to his family and friends.

REST IN PEACE!

The notion of the album is all but gone these days. It's not often you come across a project that has cohesive quality artwork and packaging, music and a theme that weaves it all together. "Dearly Departed" is precisely that, an album you can touch, feel and listen to from start to finish leaving fulfilled.

This album can best be described as a combination of psych rock and funk. The result is a sultry, soulful downtempo instrumental sound that is sure to move you whether you like hip hop, soul, rock or downtempo electronica. DJ Ayres summarizes best by saying, "I would put this album in the same category as DJ Shadow - Endtroducing and RJD2 - Dead Ringer."

Bird Peterson "It becomes a soundtrack for your everyday life."

  2. NickNack "Sugar Shack"
  3. NickNack "Beat Drop"
  4. NickNack "Turntable Treats"

"Aqui en la Playa" was inspired by Nick's travels to Barcelona, Spain. It has that here on the beach, latin-house vibe to it. Can't you just imagine yourself laid back, sipping a long island ice tea?

"Sugar Shack" is reminiscent of that 60's, four on the floor, greasy funk. Thick drums and a tight bass will surely get the floor rocking! The vibe was inspired by the famous sugar shack painting by Ernie Barnes. Hence the track name.

"Beat Drop" is sort of a mixture of electro, 80's hiphop and dirty south. The moog bass has hints of a Too Short influence but with a modern twist by way of the drums. This track will work great in a variety of situations.

It is set in a futuristic urban dystopia and examines a common science fiction theme of the day: the social crisis between workers and owners in capitalism. The film stars Alfred Abel as the leader of the city, Gustav Frihlich as his son, who tries to mediate between the elite caste and the workers, Brigitte Helm as both the pure-at-heart worker Maria and the debased robot version of her, and Rudolf Klein-Rogge as the mad scientist who created the robot.

Nick worked in conjunction with Alamo Drafthouse to produce a live turntable score for the film and he performed it live several times. This is a live recording from one of those screenings.

  5. NickNack "Skipless Drums"
  6. NickNack "Tempo Track"
  7. NickNack "Winded"
  8. NickNack "Table Scraps"

This is the follow-up release to Nick's highly successful "Soundcraftsman v1" scratch tool. This time around Nick tries his hand at creating a unique "break" record.

You could say "Broken" is a break record, but there is a bit more to it than meets the eye. The B Side of this record features four instrumental tracks that express the essence of what a "break" really is. It's all about the drums and bass, that raw, undressed, virgin funk that is the basis of a great song. Use these breaks to practice scratching, beat juggling or even to practice creating songs by adding melodies on top.

If that isn't enough, Nick also included loads of sounds to scratch. Side A features skipless drums and scratches plus over 3 minutes of unique vocal phrases. The phrases he selected aren't your average battle sentences (although there are plenty of those), they can be used in songs and choruses in a wide variety of musical genres.

Lastly, for all you scratch maniacs out there, Nick came up with a unique concept for you to practice with. It's a "Tempo Track" that starts at 66BPM and goes up to 130BPM and back down to 66BPM. This allows you to practice scratching over changing tempos at extremes (really fast and really slow), which will increase your musical chops.

"Soundcraftsman" is a scratch tool for the turntable musician. It features some of the most innovative ideas to hit the world of turntablism. Far from your ordinary scratch record with 4-5 beats and only 2 minutes of scratch phrases, this revolutionary turntable tool is jam packed full of usable scratches, drums, vocal phrases and a completely unique series of notes, scales and chords. It will certainly change how the turntable is manipulated and perceived by the outside world. Welcome to the beginning of a new and exciting era in turntable music.

First off, "Soundcraftsman" allows DJs to easily play almost any melody. There are 6 instruments that feature note improvisation based on scales and each track is organized by key signature. This means that any notes you play will work with fellow musicians or songs, if you are in the right key.

Plenty traditional scratches such as csshh, fresh, drums and vocal phrases are available. All of the traditional scratches and drums are skipless and the CDJ version even has 22 loopable bonus beats for you to scratch over!

"Soundcraftsman" is the follow up release to the highly successful "Improving Silence" album and 12inches ("Mustard Seed" and "Soul Nourishment") which have sold around 9,000 copies worldwide so far. This revolutionary scratch tool will surely prove to be even more of a success.

In 2004 Nick was afforded the opportunity of going on tour with RJD2 and Diverse. He wasn't going to make much money on the tour, but it would serve as a great promotional opportunity, so he took it. While in Montreal, Quebec, the van was broken into (pictured on CD cover) and all his personal records, personal CD collection, mixer, needles, etc... were stolen. His total loss was around $5,000 worth of personal property. Unfortunately this is real life and these things happen. However, Nick decided to put together this mix, in an effort to help cover the losses.

"The right mood." Vibe Magazine (Vibe Raters) May 2004

"I can't figure out if I'm listening to a new 12" or some classic Bob James ish." DJ Graffiti (88.3FM WCBN)

"Merging hip-hop and jazz into nothing short of beautiful music, Improving Silence should be heralded as a classic." Austin Chronicle (4 star review)

"Improving Silence is an impressive album that deserves all the attention and support." The Daily Texan

"NickNack's unique brand of downtempo is just what the doctor ordered to counter these stressful days. As a member of the jazz band Blaze, Nick brings a knack for melodic instrumentation to the table, coupled with his hip-hop background as a DJ in his native Texas. The result is a smooth-operating long-player that'll leave you with sweet dreams on wax." URB Magazine (El Dopa) April 2004

"If you're as sick of rappers as I am, then you sometimes just want to zone the fuck out and walk off your hangover with a bottle of orange juice and some music that doesn't feature a screaming moron in your Walkman....So I'm not even going to try to tell you about these records, I'm just going to tell you that they've been good to me as I've stumbled home at four in the morning with a bloody nose and fresh set of batteries...NickNack's 'Improving Silence'[the jazzy one]" Vice Magazine (Fritz The Cat) Vol 11 No 2

  • NickNack - Robot Carnival (Live Turntable Score)

After Alamo Drafthouse booked Nick to do a live turntable score for the Robot Carnival Japanimation shorts, the demand for this score was so high we had to press it up. To be clear, this is Nick's live turntable set, as heard at the Alamo Drafthouse screening of Robot Carnival.

For those that don't know about Robot Carnival...

Before Animatrix, before there was Neo-Tokyo, there was Robot Carnival. Part grand experiment and part anime showcase it was conceived in 1987 as a chance to get some of the best anime directors to flex their anime muscles in short form. Robot Carnival is a collection of shorts with a mecha theme that offers something for almost every anime fan, even if you aren't a fan of giant robots and the traditional robot revenge epics (although there is some of each in the mix). The collection of 8 sequences is a joy to behold and spans the breadth of the mecha genre. It has an excellent twisted sense of humor in the form of Introduction (by Katsuhiro Otomo of Akira fame, poignant drama in the form of "Presence" (Yasuomi Umetsu director of "Gatchaman" and "Kite") and the languid line drawings of "Clouds" (Mao Lambdo), as well as by the book mech stories for both girls and boys ("Starlight Angel" Hiroyuki Kitazume who directed Moldiver, and Aura Battler Dunbine and was character designer for Megazone 23 and "Deprive" Hidetoshi Omori , the director of Urusei Yatsura [aka Lum] respectively). Rounding out the set is the humorous "A Tale of Two Robots" (by Hiroyuki Kitakubo director of "Rojin Z" and "Blood: the Last Vampire") a parody of Japanese war propaganda films and "Nightmare" (Takashi Nakamura Director of Catnapped and an animator on Nausicaa) which is a nod to Night on Bald Mountain from Disney's Fantasia. There is a reason why this anthology is still being shown in this day and age of "the next new best thing" anime, experience it for the first time or again for nostalgia's sake. (Tony Salvaggio)
