Nia Archives presents: UP YA ARCHIVES - MARCH RUN on Thursday 23rd - Friday 24th March 2023

Nia Archives presents 'UP YA ARCHIVES' at The Arch in Brighton


Nia Archives in a singular talent. Born in Bradford and growing up in Leeds before moving out at 16
to relocate to Manchester, her earliest memories of music are deeply rooted in her Jamaican
heritage. A proud young British black woman who grew up in a predominantly white area, it’s
important to Nia to take up space in jungle as a young Black woman, representing her dual-heritage
roots and carving out space for other Black women to see themselves in the genre. Heavily
influenced by soundsystem culture and carnival - the good vibes, energy and uniting quality of which
undeniably teems through her music, she’s also inspired by artists and icons like Grace Jones, Erykah
Badu, Angela Davies, Lauryn Hill, Nina Simone, Maya Angelou and more - all women who in their
own way have represented and pushed forwards generations of black women.
Now London based, Nia Archives is one of the most exciting and compelling new artists in the UK
making cutting edge lo-fi jungle music. Representing her Jamaican roots, nodding to and paying
homage to the rich history of the genre, in the last year alone Nia Archives has won the DJ Mag
‘Breakthrough Producer 2022’, NME Bandlab Award for ‘Best Producer’; been named the BBC
Introducing “Artist of the Year” as the first electronic artist to ever be awarded the prize, was awarded
3rd place in the BBC Sound of 2023 Poll, as well as winning the AIM Awards “One To Watch” prize and
recently received a MOBO Award for the newly introduced “Best Electronic/Dance Act” category and
a nomination for “Best Newcomer”. Alongside further nominations, the shortlist for the BRITs “Rising
Star” Award, the 2022 DJ Mag Awards for “Breakthrough Producer” and “Best Track” and tips from
BBC Radio 1 Dance as a ‘Future Star’, Spotify as their ‘Our Generation’ cover star, Nia has also graced
the covers of Mixmag and NME.
Her euphoria inducing, club ready productions peppered with cathartic and honest lyrics about her
life and experiences on her 2021 debut EP Headz Gone West (including ‘Sober Feels’ on 7.5M+ global
Spotify streams) and breakout EP Forbidden Feelingz (6.8M+ global Spotify streams) have taken the
country by storm and have been given the seal of approval from tastemakers across the board from
Rolling Stone UK, GQ, British Vogue, The Face, Pitchfork, The Fader, i-D, and CRACK. Her pre-summer
single “Mash Up The Dance” with Watch The Ride has been streamed over 2 million times and
playlisted across BBC Radio 1, 6Music, 1Xtra, Kiss FM and more with the more recent carnival cut “No
Time” (1Xtra B List) with Clipz, Beenie Man, ShaSimone and Cristale further cementing the jungle
Following an unforgettable and era defining “Summer of Jungle” that saw Nia Archives sell out a
Secret Summer Rave and play all over the world from All Points East to Glastonbury, Los Angeles to
New York, Rio De Janeiro to Notting Hill, this rising star continues to command the unwavering
attention of the UK scene with recent singles including her euphoric Brazilian choir, Barbatuques,
sampling club banger “Baianá” that’s already clocked over 1.9M streams on Spotify alone and scored
another BBC playlist hattrick with the BBC 6 Music (A List), BBC Radio 1 (C List) and BBC 1xtra (C list).
Most recently off the back of her record breaking debut Boiler Room, she continues to reframe the
jungle narrative on “So Tell Me...”, a warm and utterly timeless jungle roller lush with soaring strings,
melodic piano harmonies and brooding bass guitar licks that speaks volumes on Nia’s incredible talent
not only as a producer but as a vocalist and songwriter.
The cherry on top? Nia recently announced her new party series “Up Ya Archives” with three UK
shows before the end of the year, 30th November at The White Hotel in Manchester, and two
London shows at Unit 48 on the 2nd and 3rd December selling out the dates in a matter of minute
