Throwing Shade

Throwing Shade

London born DJ, Producer, Radio Host & Barrister, Nabihah lqbal’s (aka Throwing Shade) life is in constant orbit around music. With an affinity for space-age R&B, icy melodies, fluffy synths and deep basslines, her approach to music production at this point is very much forward-facing, but it’s not all about modern sonics for this young producer. Having studied Ethnomusicology at university, her show on NTS Radio is a place for her to showcase her far flung and eclectic tastes, taking in anything from rare Siberian phonograph field recordings and polyphonies of Central African Pygmies, through to Soviet Disco and recordings of insects. She plays music from all parts of the globe and across the ages, presented in an informative and individual way, giving cultural insights into a wealth of artists with each broadcast. Really interesting to note the considerable contrast in her output as a radio DJ and maker of music.
