Performing at the Nina Christante’s Eva By Heart launch last week, London-based producer and NTS Radio host Nabihah Iqbal, aka Throwing Shade, will be releasing a debut 12-inch, Mystic Places/Lights, on Ominira, October 7.
Having already released a cassette on the label run by Kassem Mosse (who also provided a remix for Stellar OM Source‘s recent Joy One Mile), Iqbal’s moody, self-branded “cosmic RnB” plays out like a mystical radio signal, run through a foreboding Dune-like soundtrack alternative to Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, or thereabouts and features artwork by Boudicca Collins. File next to Nguzunguzu, Fade to Mind and Visionist.
See the Omnira website for more details. **
