NikNak: Ireti

Label: Accidental Records
Release date: 20 May 2024

NikNak, a producer, turntablist, DJ, and broadcaster from Leeds, holds an impressive repertoire of experimental albums & EPs, and remixes that have captivated audiences worldwide, with her enthralling self-released debut album “Bashi” earning rave reviews. In her newest album, she delves into Afrofuturism with the release of 'Ireti'.

"Ireti is a passion project that looks at our growing relationship with tech and AI from an afrofuturistic perspective, and how if we're not careful, we could end up living in dystopian and cyberpunk worlds not too dissimilar from Blade Runner, Akira, Cyberpunk 2077. I'm so grateful to Cassie, AGAAMA, Grifton, Chisara, SlowPitchSound, Accidental Records and everyone that's given Ireti so much love and support - I wholeheartedly appreciate you!" NikNak
