NikNak is a music creative based in Leeds and originally hails from London. A woman of many roles and talents, she has fully embraced the role of an artist with her debut album "Bashi" being released in November 2020.

"Bashi" is a sonic exploration and retelling of her time spent in Turkey in 2019. After recording the sounds, NikNak later reinterpreted them into a live performance at Leeds International Festival the same year. Her work as a Turntablist and sound artist has led to her working with artists such as Shiva Feshareki and Anna Meredith, creating soundscape-based performances for Light Night in Leeds, Tor Fest, and the HCMF Festival.

As a DJ, NikNak has performed at festivals such as We Out Here, Bradford Literature Festival, Wilderness, Leeds Digital Festival, and has supported notable artists like Children Of Zeus, Yves Tumour, Princess Nokia, Moses Boyd, SEED Ensemble, Akala, Madlib and Grandmaster Flash.

“one of Leeds’ most open minded DJs whose roots are hip-hop – she’s a great scratch DJ – but she also bosses so many other genres, from jazz to dubstep, house to soul, reggae to Brazilian beats. A producer in her own right, she often guests on live gigs as a turntablist with Leeds bands Necktr and TC & The Groove Family.” .. DJ Lubi
