A trailblazing musical polymath, heralded by the likes of DJ Mag, Clash, The Wire and Resident Advisor, NikNak is known for distinctive turntablism, immersive compositions, and captivating improvised performances. This spring, she's preparing to release 'Ireti', her fourth studio album. Embracing her identity as a self-proclaimed nerd and advocate for diversity, the new LP draws on Afrofuturism and cyberpunk aesthetics to explore the intersection of humanity and technology.


Hailing from Leeds, NikNak is a multi-disciplinary artist, producer, sound designer and DJ, and in 2020 was the first Black turntablist to win an Oram Award. From embarking on her debut tour in Summer 2022 using an 8 speaker surround-sound array for her immersive third album ‘Sankofa’, to remixing works by Philip Glass for the ‘Refractions EP’ by PRS, and with various releases on labels like Kynant Records, Inventing Waves, Reel Long Overdub, OTONO and more, NikNak continues to develop wide-reaching ideas and influences.
