Hook N Sling Premiere Brand New “Break Yourself” on Complex.com
After the release of his “career defining” and aptly titled single, “Momentum,” Australian DJ/producer Hook N Sling joins Arty and Destructo in the Insomniac / Interscope Records family this week and reveals his first release.
Coming March 23rd, Hook’s latest single sees him team up with electro-rap lords Far East Movement for the unexpected and infectious, “Break Yourself.”
In fact, ‘unexpected and infectious’ has become somewhat of a motif of Hook’s in the past few years. Going back to his first breakout single “Take You Higher” with Angus & Julia Stone he meshed folk-blues and main room house, emotions and energy, to make an all-time classic. The catch-cry “Reason” with NERVO and the goose bump-inducing “Tokyo By Night” with Karin Park continued in this spirit, and served as landmarks not only in Hook’s discography but also the evolving electronic scene. More than any other, “Break Yourself” exemplifies his unique ability to strike this balance of sounds, genres, cultures and emotions with broad appeal.
