Nia Archives has shared a new single inspired by ‘90s jungle and reggae. Check it out below.
‘Forbidden Feelingz’ is the first single by the Leeds-born, London-based artist since the release of her debut EP ‘Headz Gone West’ earlier this year. Paying tribute to her Grandma Liz, the single features a sampled snippet of Colombo from the eponymous ’70s detective series.
The single – which is inspired by old school reggae and dub, as well as jungle and breakbeat – is accompanied by a black and white, stop motion-style video courtesy of director Delphino. Watch it below.
“The goal was to make something that would be nostalgic at any point in time,” said Delphino. “No matter if you watched it now or in years to come. Our aim was to create something that complimented the synergy between the vocals and instrumental.”
Nia Archives started her journey into production in 2017, and was boosted by her EQ50-led mentorship with the iconic V Recordings. The producer, songwriter, DJ and visual artist was previously tipped as one of DJ Mag’s emerging artists to look out for.
