As a DJ, NikNak has shared the stage with the likes of Mr Scruff, Lefto Early Bird, Ila Brugal, Jamz Supanova, Craig Charles, Om Unit, Jon1st, Grandmaster Flash and many more notable artists. She has been recognised as one of DJMag’s “Ones to Watch” in 2022, and has performed at Berghain, Glastonbury, Outlook UK, Dimensions, Cuidad Emergente in Argentina, FiftyLab Festival in Brussels and many more events. Each NikNak set is expansive, unique, ambitious, genre-defying, and serves as a testament to her sponge-like musical knowledge. On the radio, NikNak has shown her huge musical knowledge via shows like “Melanin” on Worldwide FM and “Dystopia” on Refuge Worldwide, to name a few.
As an artist/producer, NikNak is the first Black Turntablist to win an Oram Award in 2020 and regularly pushes boundaries on what the turntables are capable of. Taking inspiration from a wide variety of genres and artists, NikNak lets her ideas and creatively flow freely – leading her to have worked on various theatre productions and R&Ds as a sound designer, performer, and composer/producer, and also being a member of Eve’sDropCollective & TC And The Groove family
