About
Story
Introduction
Hakim Callier is a recordist and mixing engineer; a musician and music producer living in Harlem, NY.

Both of his parents are musicians. His father, Rick Callier, is a classically trained composer and a talented multi-instrumentalist. Rick is also a well known arranger and respected music producer who owns Multi-Music Corporation, a music education studio in Covington, GA.

Hakim worked in his father's recording studio for many years throughout his childhood and adolescence, but gained the bulk of his theoretical knowledge of recording, mixing and mastering at New York's acclaimed, Institute of Audio Research. He quickly put this knowledge to use on his own album projects in the late 1990's.

Hakim has been producing music recordings for over 20 years. He graduated from Jefferson High School, a performing arts high school in Portland, Oregon and was active in the high school's television production program. Then Hakim spent the next 2 years on the road; recording and developing his first album, "Somebody's Watching Me", produced by Ben Willis (DJ Massey) of Rawkus Records.

In 2001, after finishing his untitled second album, Hakim took a hiatus from the business of music and recording. He attended New York University in pursuit of a BS in Information Technology.

Then in 2008, in the heart of Harlem, New York, he once again emerged onto the music scene making compositions for content producers and music libraries. Hakim is currently producing several album projects and freelancing as a recording/mixing engineer.
