NIA ARCHIVES

Nia Archives is making soft-hearted lo-fi jungle for introverted extroverts. Her first memories of music are deeply rooted in her Jamaican heritage; reggae and lovers rock were always on around her childhood home in Leeds, and she attended Pentecostal church regularly as a child where she was exposed to gospel music. After moving out at 16, she relocated to Manchester, where her way of getting to know people was through raves and house parties.


It’s important to Nia to take up space in jungle as a young Black woman, representing her Jamaican roots and carving out space for other Black women to see themselves in the genre.
