There is more than one artist with this name:
1) Hulk is Dublin artist Thomas Haugh, who uses a combination of organic and electronic processed sound with live instrumentation to produce atmospheric and expansive music, at times plaintive and brooding and at other times uplifting.
Over the years Hulk has released material on UK labels Static Caravan, Expanding, Melodic and Osaka, as well as contributing to some on-line compilation projects. His albums to date are Silver Thread of ghosts and Rise of a mystery tide.
2) A Belgian stoner band used the name Hulk from 2000 until 2007, when they changed their name to Les Anges.” They are from La Louvière, Belgium. Band Members are: Herr Mayer/Renaud(vocals & guitar), Sandra Hagenaar(keyboards, former Fifty Foot Combo), Matthew Mc Nasher (bass & vocals) & Don Giacomo (drums & vocals)
As Hulk they recorded two albums - Party Time and Cowboy Coffee & Burned Knives - and an EP called The Codeine Sessions.
3) A collaboration of the minds of two creative minds sharing a similar enthusiasm for heavy driven bass music, Claw & Richie August. After meeting at the 2009 Winter Music Conference in Miami, they began to send files back and forth to collaborate on projects in Dubstep, Hip Hop and Electro. Since the inception, Hulk has been catching the eyes and ears of artists such as Reid Speed, Reso, Mark Instinct, Ultrablack, TrillBass, High Rankin and DJ Lord of Public Enemy, just to name a few.
Their first official release dropped on Reid Speeds’ Play Me Records as a Beatport exclusive in January of 2010, containing the tracks, “See You” and “Angeldust” with official remixes by King from Las Vegas. Hulk has also recently launched their own record label, “BroTown Records” with the help of Symphonic Distribution. This new venture already has the scene begging for the slated releases to drop, with songs by Claw and Richie August along BroTown artists Vaski, Druley, Mark Instinct, Symbl and their own moniker Hulk. Get ready for the biggest bass in the game, as Hulk is here to SMASH!
Claw emerged in Houston, Texas in 1999, at the age of 15. He was well-received from the start, making contacts with the local rave DJ’s of the time. By the time he was 16, he was playing at some of Houston’s bigger underground parties and weekly events. After graduating high school, he moved to Florida to pursue music as a profession and began playing at weekly events. After finishing his music engineering studies at Fullsail in Orlando, Claw made his way across New York working at numerous studios with various engineers and producers. He then moved to Las Vegas to pursue his record label with Trillbass, which he co-founded. Claw also just did an official Dubstep remix for Wu-Tang that debuted at # 7 on the ITunes Hip Hop chart, and is currently back living in NY to run his art gallery and record label ventures.
Richie August started out mixing Drum & Bass and Hip Hop in the south-side of Chicago in 1998. He began producing his own tracks in 2000, alongside Chicago Hip Hop artist, “Skope The Lyrical MC”. In early 2008, Richie got his first taste of dubstep and It didn’t take him long before he was refining his sound and signing his first EP of tracks to Betamorph Recordings. The Death Proof EP came out and solidified Richie and his unique blend of teeth rattling bass and Hip Hop edge in the Dubstep community. As soon as you hear a new Richie August tune, you know it’s his. Since then, he’s been making dancefloor smashing hits, remixing, collaborating, and is up to over 15 releases on various labels, with no slowing down in sight.
In March of 2014, Claw passed away. He will be missed.
