‘The unofficial queen of music that makes you want to dance and cry at the same time.’
Solo electronic artist and connoisseur of ‘sad dance’ music NALA is the work of Leeds College of Music student Holly Readman from the north east UK.
The 21 year old composer/producer, who released their very first body of work [EP1] in November 2017, has only just begun their musical journey but is already making waves in the Leeds electronica scene, making passionate steps to push the Girls To The Front movement.
An alchemist of remorseless beats, jarring basslines, and sprinkled with lyrics preaching truths of mental health and injustice - its creepy, its gritty, its fearless and relentless; and unapologetically so.
Since making an entrance to the Leeds DJ scene in March this year, Zoya has been making waves with her melodic sets that are all about sensual builds and mesmeric rhythm. Known for her diverse selections and deep-rooted love of percussive Bollywood and bhangra, she takes the dancefloor on a journey from smooth jazz and global rhythms to hot and heavy anthems that command the crowd.
Following her recent set opening for Anu, 2017 has seen Zoya rise quickly, taking a secure place in the Leeds DJ scene. She represents a new generation of strong, female DJs who are in full control of their music and mixes. As well as being one of the founders or LSR’s dreamy Bathtime sessions, she is also part of the newfound sisterhood Equaliser, creating nights and workshops to support females, non-binary and LGBT audiences and musicians.
Expect a considered, captivating DJ set that bypasses cheap thrills and invites you to join her hypnotic world that isn’t afraid to throw in the odd bass bin shaker or two.
For ekaterina all the world is a stage! Having worked with various theatre companies in her home country Bulgaria, she quickly realised that her biggest passion is in theatre and performing arts, and she is now studying a master’s degree in Performance Design here in Leeds.
m-arble (next of kin)
Former hip-hop producer and co-founder and resident of Next of Kin, m-arble has proven successful in shaping some of the best nights in Leeds. Providing the dance floor with melodic groovers all the way through to the depth of creamy goodness. Expect an array of sonic, dance-based therapy to help ease the pain of the daily grind. His sets are a silky release from a darkening reality, and a tender comfort from an ever concerning world.
