Her tracks were first picked up by enigmatic German producer Kassem Mosse for his impeccable Ominira label last autumn.
And Nabihah’s latest release, the 19 Jewels EP, will see the light of day through hip UK imprint No Pain in Pop next month.
It’s her trademark post-party sound that seems to be getting everyone in a tizz, with its plunging basslines and grimy beats tempering a precocious melodic flair.
Fans will soon get the chance to catch the NTS-DJ-turned-producer at Café Oto, London, alongside Torn Hawk – a Brooklyn based sonic auteur whose equally arresting sound has brought him international acclaim.
The pairing on 8 May will see the grit of Nabihah’s London-centric sound go head to head with Torn Hawk’s decayed East Coast techno.
