Nubiyan Twist fuse infectiously danceable, groove-driven music from around the world with soundsystem culture and jazz-inspired improvisation. Punchy arrangements, a giant horn section, upbeat Brazilian raps, turntablism, futuristic textures and dub effects combine with the sultry, soulful delivery of lead singer Nubiya Brandon. Encouraging artistic and social unity between different cultures and musical styles, notable influences include the likes of Fela Kuti, King Tubby, J Dilla, Herbie Hancock and Nat King Cole.
Grown in the fertile Leeds music scene while studying at Leeds College Of Music, Nubiyan Twist are now mostly resident in London, with a hardcore faction based at Henwood Studios, the custom studio they built in Oxfordshire out of hay bales and cement as Nubiyan HQ.
Having won acclaim for their electric live performances, over the band’s 3 year lifespan they’ve collaborated with Ruby Wood (Submotion Orchestra), played alongside De La Soul, Bonobo, Quantic, MF Doom, Robert Glasper Experiment, Gentlemen’s Dub Club, Groundation, Ebo Taylor and DJ Yoda, and can count BBC 6 Music’s Huey Morgan as a fan.
