Eva By Heart

Throwing Shade – ‘Mystic Places’

19 September 2013

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. **

Eva By Heart Publication Launch @ Arcadia Missa

9 September 2013

Curated by Nina Cristante, Eva By Heart was a series of artist-led nights, running once a month from February 2012 to February 2013 at East London’s Visions Video Bar and charging its participants with the task of conceiving an event in the basement venue. Launching from that will be online publication evabyheart.me at South London’s Arcadia Missa, on Thursday September 12.

Hosted by Nina Cristante, we’re just as excited about the musical after party to follow, featuring M.E.S.H, THROWING SHADE, VIPRA and event organiser Felicita at Exquizite Lounge. Listen to Felicita’s wonky, bass-battered-into-abstraction below and see the Facebook event page for details. **
