Announcing a truly special event at Club 77 this Monday, June 19th! Immerse yourself in a harmonious blend of innovative British-Pakistani grooves, unearthed Arabic gems, and ethereal Detroit-inspired house with Habibi Funk and Nabihah Iqbal. Joined by Club 77 resident Deepa and Global Sounds.
Habibi Funk, the brainchild of Jannis from Jakarta Records, is a DJ and record label championing overlooked music from the Arab world's 60s to 80s era. Driven by his passion for funky, soulful, and psychedelic tunes, Jannis has extensively toured North Africa and the Middle East, unearthing rare musical gems that challenge stereotypical perceptions of the Arab world. Apart from producing seven popular mixes, Habibi Funk Records has reissued six records, with an energetic DJ live set showcasing a unique blend of rare vinyls from across the region.
Nabihah Iqbal, an avant-garde sound sorceress hailing from London, is riding the crest of a wave following her captivating second album, 'DREAMER'. Formally operating under the pseudonym Throwing Shade, Nabihah's eclectic craft weaves together strands of pop, electronic, and world music, establishing her as a sought-after DJ, producer, and radio host. In her parallel lives, she's an ethnomusicologist and human rights lawyer. Initially releasing as Throwing Shade, she transitioned to her birth name with the 2017 Ninja Tune debut, 'Weighing of the Heart'. A veteran radio voice on NTS and BBC networks, Nabihah's live act and DJ sets have also gained international acclaim, touring prestigious venues like V&A Museum, MoMA PS1, and festivals such as SXSW, Glastonbury, and Sonar.
When not manning the radio FBi Radio waves, Deepa is wielding her USBs to stunning effect upon a Sydney dance floor, mixing up an eclectic storm from oddball and leftfield selections stretching to rose-tinted Indopop, cheeky breaks and deep, dark hypnotic drums.
