Hot Sugar is Nick Koenig from New York, a producer, musician, and proponent of a musical process he refers to as Associative Music (a process involving the manipulation of sounds recorded outdoors and in non-studio environments). The unique aesthetic this process conjures first attracted Questlove, who invited him to contribute to their 2011 album, Undun. Since working with the Roots, Hot Sugar went on to sign with Ninja Tune for his debut EP, Moon Money. A collection of beats built from sampling human bones, a snoring neighbor, and gusts from a hurricane, Moon Money presents Hot Sugar as one of the most inventive sound artists of today. Watch him perform live at Spike Hill with special guests on August 17th as part of Last.fm's monthly live concert series.
