London producer Throwing Shade (aka Nabihah Iqbal) released her 19 Jewels EP through No Pain in Pop on May 19, along with artwork by artist Rachel Noble.
In counting the likes of SOPHIE, A. G. Cook and Felicita as her peers, there’s the recognisably thematic fixation on sweetness and stimulation Sweet Tooth featuring Emily Bee, while the rest of the record is more muffled by the cloak of bass and RnB that Iqbal already established with Kassem Mosse’s Ominira label-released Mystic Places/Lights 12-inch and her recent TRANSCEND FUTURE mix for aqnb.
Read an interview with Rachel Noble and see the No Pain in Pop website for details. **
