FAUZIA

Electronic

“Moving beyond familiar club contexts in search of points unknown” Pitchfork

“The future is bright, and FAUZIA is ready” Mixmag

FAUZIA first broke through as a DJ. Inspired by the interwoven legacies of fast music from either side of the Atlantic, her monthly NTS show sees her blend together the best of footwork, jungle and everything in between — with the likes of Mall Grab, Kode9, DJ Taye, Om Unit and Ikonika stopping in for guest spots.

The start of 2020 saw FAUZIA start to showcase her own original music for the first time, first with a celebrated production mix for DISCWOMAN, and then with a contribution to the flagship 10th edition in HAUS of ALTR’s various artists series — picking up glowing press from Resident Advisor, Mixmag, DJ Mag, Crack and more in the process.

It was with a series of missives released during the pandemic that FAUZIA’s music really started to evolve – from the starry-eyed breaks of ‘Fragments’ through to ‘are you hoping for a miracle?’ and ‘time’, a pair of downtempo pop releases that saw FAUZIA sing on her material for the first time while also collaborating with Kelela and George Riley.

Her new live show debuted at Wysing Polyphonic in the Summer of 2021, followed by appearances supporting Loraine James and Space Afrika. December 2021 saw FAUZIA sell out her first headline at Southbank Centre’s Purcell room, accompanied by her band, as well as the debut of her first a/v installation.

“Delighted to be a part of this year’s cohort, and looking forward to the development of my practice with the support of POWER UP!” FAUZIA
