NikNak’s mix for DJ Mag’s Radio 1 Dance residency is available to stream on demand now. Listen to it here, or via the BBC Sounds app.
NikNak is an award-winning turntablist, producer and presenter based in Leeds, who is just at home mixing funk and hip-hop as she is dubstep and d&b, and as comfortable putting together experimental ambient works as she is interviewing icons for her The Narrative podcast; she’s on the rise and doing it her way. Her mix for our series is a thrilling trip through rhythms and styles with her singular technique at the fore.
NikNak’s mix is the second of five to broadcast throughout January as part of DJ Mag’s Radio 1 Dance residency. Broadcasting every Saturday night throughout the month, each mix in the residency will spotlight one of DJ Mag’s five DJs to watch for the coming year, each of whom are profiled in the latest edition of our UK print mag. You can check out the full running order for the series here.
The DJs selected for DJ Mag's Radio 1 residency are SJAYY, NikNak, Kasango, Black Cadmium and Mixtress. From Jersey club to Afrotech, hardcore, house and beyond, these are the acts pushing tomorrow’s sounds today.
