Throwing Shade

This Week's Guest Mix

Plying her trade as a barrister by day, Throwing Shade doesn’t conform to the normal trajectory of a young DJ and producer. Taking her name from the seminal documentary Paris Is Burning and a student of ethnomusicology, Nabihah lqbal is – to put it bluntly – a walking musical encyclopedia.

Her show on NTS Radio touches on music around the world you didn’t even know existed, from rare Siberian phonograph field recordings to polyphonies of Central African Pygmies. Her own productions touch on the darker regions of RnB and lo-fi house, making the Throwing Shade package altogether impossible to pigeonhole and the perfect candidate for a truly worldwide mix.

Throwing Shade – Fate Xclusive EP is out now on No Pain Is Pop. Listen to her worldwide mix below.
