Nick Weaver is a Seattle-based hip-hop artist, performer, and producer. He started in his early teen years, making mixtapes in the northwest while being raised on everything from Tchaikovsky to The Cure. As he grows and evolves as an artist, his interest in all types of music continues to guide his vision. When asked about his influences, Weaver cites long time favorite acts such as LCD Soundsystem, Hot Chip, Helios, and Mogwai, as well as hip hop legends like Nas, Royce Da 5'9", Mobb Deep, and Eminem. With a vast breadth of music styles to draw from, Weaver treats each project as a way to further evolve his own art - one inspiration at a time.

New Track City Bio: Coming on the scene with jazz, Soul and Alternative inspired sounds mixed with the lyrically captivity of Hip Hop, Federal Way's New Track City is something new and different. Formed of two rappers (Bem and Chi. Stone) and producer (Dru on Beats) the Federal Way, Washington trio plans to leave everything on the table letting the chips fall where they may. This "all in" attitude can be heard throughout New Track City's first internet album, Spring Exceeds Winter, in which they blend live instruments with Big Band Jazz to create a hip hop sound of their own. Not only is the sound different but the diversity is also what sets it apart from most projects out there. Their follow up mixtape the "Damn Gina Tape" also recreates a vintage era of music with a soundbed filled with live instrumentation, thumping drums, and soulful vibes. With the 2017 release of their EP "Lose Sight of Shore" produced entirely by Dru on Beats, New Track City intends to continue their streak of pushing the level of sounds we have became accustomed to hearing in Hip Hop.
