"Amidst the dizzying array of chopped, looped, and sampled sounds that constitute much of today’s electronic music scene, New York City-based producer/musician/gifhead Nick Koenig’s work stands alone. Koenig, who performs under the moniker Hot Sugar, relies on his own surroundings and aural intuition to craft entirely original beats from scratch. The process, which he refers to as Associative Music, involves recording found sounds (such as a rat’s heartbeat, Hurricane Sandy, a cracking skull) and manipulating them into infectious melodies. The technique requires meticulous skill, risky experimentation (Koenig once admitted to electrocuting himself for the “zapping sounds”) and often, an affinity for the eccentric. Since bursting onto the music scene in 2011, Koenig’s unorthodox approach and unpredictable instrumentals have caught the attention of rap artists The Roots, Big Baby Gandhi and Das Racist, triggering a string of dream collaborations, a new album, and recently, a big-time Grammy nomination. Koenig filled us in on his latest successes over email, where he signed every message with a far-from-sinister ‘< 3'." -Bullett
