Strength To Leave is the premiere LP by HNDMD artist Nick Garcia. The record brings together sounds from house, techno, ambient, and bass music, inspired by a summer impulsively spent alone in Los Angeles. The sounds, textures, and samples on Strength To Leave represent loss, change, and self-reflection. It is ultimately about finding the courage to depart from what keeps us comfortable, to confront change open-mindedly, and to explore life's more radical possibilities.
Special thanks to Chris Engel for offering unparalleled insight during the mixing and mastering process of this record, and to Jonathan Baruc for bringing to life artwork that truly captures the essence of Nick's vision.
We'd like to personally thank you all, our listeners, and we hope you enjoy Nick's newest contribution to the HNDMD catalogue.
