Ngaio Music

“A force to be reckoned with, NGAIO is more than just a singer. This powerhouse of a performer can switch from a killer DJ set to delivering intricate jazz harmonies with a voice that could have stepped out of the 1940s, to heart-hitting spoken word. Expect music that crosses cultures, pushes boundaries and leaves you wanting more.


NGAIO’s EP We Fly saw recognition for her ability to rouse your musical and intellectual interest through a blend of genres sitting underneath lyrics that left your mind thinking and your feet moving.

DJ & Radio Host

Ngaio’s infectious party starting selections saw her being booked at Glastonbury the same year she learned how to DJ in 2016. Since then she has played countless festivals, runs events with her all female/non binary DJ crew Booty Bass and hosts a monthly radio show on Soho Radio. Previously, Ngaio had a weekly radio show on SWU FM. 

Head to the video to watch an hour of party-starting rhythms, direct from SWU FM for We Out Here festival.

DJ & Host

NGAIO’s high energy DJ sets are made up of sounds from around the globe and messages that matter, drawing heavily from her cultural background and travels.

Blending bass and global music, her sets combine Afro, Latin, Dancehall, UK Funky and D&B and live vocals. Find her on the decks, the mic, hosting events and monthly Soho Radio show.


“I am who I am because of what has nurtured me. And that runs deeper down than skin. There’s so much more than one ethnicity. So why should I choose a side to live in.”

A voice that could have stepped out of the 1940s. Jazz layered harmonies wrap around the listeners ear speaking to identity, feminism and hope.


Founded in 2018, Booty Bass brings together female and non-binary DJs taking inspiration from our collective diasporic backgrounds.

Expect high energy, big tunes, respect driven audiences – our parties are not to be missed. As a collective, and when we link up with Shade Cartel to run Obsidian.
