London-based artist Nia Archives takes classic jungle and drum-and-bass breakbeats and adds her own spin to the styles on her recently released Forbidden Feelingz EP, mixing in folk, R&B, afrobeats, and a personal lyrical point of view. She calls her sound "future classic." It's a terrific record and you can listen to the whole thing, and watch the "Forbidden Feelingz" and "Part of Me" videos, below.

Nia will soon cross the Atlantic for her first-ever North American tour dates: San Francisco on July 29 at 1015 Folsom, San Bernadino's Hard Summer Fest on July 30, Brooklyn's Elsewhere Zone One on August 4, and Miami's The Ground on August 5.

7/30 - The Hard Summer festival - San Bernardino, CA
8/4 - Zone One (Elsewhere) - Brooklyn, NY
