The talented multi-hyphenate returns to No Pain In Pop.

As Throwing Shade, London-based artist Nabilhah Iqbal has established herself as a producer of left-field pop and R&B, a presenter on NTS Radio, and an underrated DJ.

With the Fate Xclusive EP, she focuses on the former, exploring the fringes of pop, R&B and club music across four scintillating, seductive songs. There’s even a synth-swaddled tribute to Drake (‘4Drake’, naturally).

Stream the EP in full below. Fate Xclusive is due out on May 25 (and is available for pre-order) via No Pain in Pop, the label that released her captivating 19 Jewels EP.

Last year, FACT’s Angus Finlayson interviewed Throwing Shade about her transformation from South Africa-based lawyer to London R&B star.
