Nadeem Din-Gabisi

Performing with London Jazz royalty Shabaka Hutchins, featuring on Sampa The Great’s 2018 track ‘Energy’ and being listen on Barrack Obama’s summer playlist for 2022 are just a couple of Nadeem Din-Gabisi's accolades to date.

UK's Din-Gabisi’s music radiates a determined and un-rescinded energy. Its message, immersed within a cocktail of grime, hip-hop, highlife and jazz - akin to punk in its fervent cries, charged lyrics and refusal to subscribe to any -particular lane - deftly takes the listener through his personal journey.

His debut music project ‘POOL’ examining moments of trauma and happiness in childhood. It uses those moments as a diving board to explore mental health issues and coping mechanisms of many young black men, born in inner and outer London. It questions and attempts to answer why some of these men swim, why some sink and why some others don't enter the POOL.

Croydon based Nadeem Din-Gabisi’s previous musical explorations have involved touring with London jazz-collective Steam Down.
