Organic hip-hop producer Nick Koenig, aka Hot Sugar, has seen his stock rise considerably in just the past year. It was just last November that we watched him make a killer beat from scratch. And this past January, he would release an excellent free EP, Muscle Milk, while plugging away in his New York studio. He would go on to catch the attention of the Roots, who brought him on to produce the opening track on their upcoming album, Undun.
Hot Sugar’s biggest statement will be made in early 2012, however, when he releases his Moon Money. He won’t be doing it on his own this time, either, as he announced this afternoon that the album will be released by Ninja Tune. You can watch the rad announcement video below.
