NIA ARCHIVES

Born in Bradford and raised in Leeds before moving to Manchester, the North of England lays claim to one of the UK jungle scene’s most blistering arrivals: 23-year-old producer Nia Archives. Her love of the genre – and others like dub, breaks, and hip hop – was fostered from a young age, with the sounds of reggae, dancehall and more often tinkling throughout her childhood home: “‘She’s Royal’ by Tarrus Riley was a big song in my childhood. In my house, there was a lot of UK hip-hop like Roots Manuva and Broke ‘n’ English. I was also obsessed with gospel music as a kid.”
