With an enviable and seismic year behind her that was topped with a MOBO win for “Best Electronic/Dance Act”, a Brits Rising Star nomination, DJ Mag award for “Best Producer” and #3 in BBC Sound Poll; British producer, DJ and songwriter Nia Archives has announced details of her upcoming Up Ya Archives UK and EU tour, which includes a show in The Workman’s Club on Saturday 1st April 2023. The announcement comes alongside the news of Nia Archives’ forthcoming EP Sunrise Bang Ur Head Against The Wall and the release of her latest single ‘Conveniency’. 

Bradford born now London based, Nia Archives is one of the most exciting and compelling new artists in the UK making soft-hearted, cutting edge lo-fi jungle for introverted extroverts. Representing her Jamaican roots, nodding to and paying homage to the rich history of the genre, in 2022 alone Nia Archives won the NME Bandlab Award for ‘Best Producer’; won the MOBO Award for Best Electronic/Dance Act, been named the BBC Introducing “Artist of the Year” as the first electronic artist to ever be awarded the prize, won the AIM Awards “One To Watch” prize and finished #3 in BBC Sound Poll. Alongside further wins at the 2022 DJ Mag Awards for “Breakthrough Producer”, a Brits Rising Star nomination and tips from 1xtra as a Hot 4 2023 artist, BBC Radio 1 Dance as a ‘Future Star’, Spotify as their ‘Our Generation’ cover star, Nia has also graced the covers of Mixmag and NME.
Following an unforgettable and era defining “Summer of Jungle” in 2022 that saw Nia Archives sell out a Secret Summer Rave and play all over the world from All Points East to Glastonbury, Los Angeles to New York, Rio De Janeiro to Notting Hill, this rising star continued to command the unwavering attention of the UK scene with recent singles including her euphoric Brazilian choir, Barbatuques, sampling club banger “Baianá” that’s already clocked over 8m streams on Spotify alone and scored another BBC playlist hattrick with the BBC 6 Music (A List), BBC Radio 1 (B List) and BBC 1xtra (B list). Her recent timeless jungle roller “So Tell Me...” has recently made the AList at BBC Radio 1.

Her euphoria inducing, club ready productions peppered with cathartic and honest lyrics about her life and experiences on her 2021 debut EP Headz Gone West (including ‘Sober Feels’ on 7.5M+ global Spotify streams) and breakout EP Forbidden Feelingz (6.8M+ global Spotify streams) have taken the country by storm and have been given the seal of approval from tastemakers across the board from Rolling Stone UK, GQ, British Vogue, The Face, Pitchfork, The Fader, i-D, and CRACK. Her pre-summer single “Mash Up The Dance” with Watch The Ride has been streamed over 2 million times and playlisted across BBC Radio 1, 6Music, 1Xtra, Kiss FM and more with the more recent carnival cut “No Time” (1Xtra B List) with Clipz, Beenie Man, ShaSimone and Cristale further cementing the jungle prowess.

A proud young British black woman who grew up in a predominantly white area, it’s important to Nia to take up space in jungle as a young Black woman, representing her dual-heritage roots and carving out space for other Black women to see themselves in the genre. Heavily influenced by soundsystem culture and carnival - the good vibes, energy and uniting quality of which undeniably teems through her music, she’s also inspired by artists and icons like Grace Jones, Erykah Badu, Angela Davies, Lauryn Hill, Nina Simone, Maya Angelou and more - all women who in their own way have represented and pushed forwards generations of black women.
