Presenting Nadia Ksaiba a highly regarded DJ/Producer, singer and radio show host, guaranteed to rock any dance floor.
Nadia Ksaiba is quite extraordinarily difficult. When you're expecting one of her notorious party sets you're likely to be treated instead to two hours of leftfield underground disco. Next time you hear her she'll turn out two hours of heavy techno, Or jacking Chicago house. Or synth pop. Or new wave punk funk. Or all of the above. At the same time.
Nadia learned to be difficult as a regular on the dancefloor of
legendary Monday nighter Trash where she hooked up with resident DJ Rory
Phillips and started the highly influential 'And Did We Mention Our Disco'
which ran weekly at Plastic People from 2003-2008 and swiftly won a
reputation as the most exciting place in the capital to hear new music.
During it's run guests included 2ManyDJs, Justice, LCD Soundsystem, Hot Chip, Prins Thomas, Lindstrom, Mr Oizo, Erol Alkan and Optimo among others.
Word quickly spread about Nadia's skills and soon enough she was picking up gigs as tour DJ for the The Klaxons, Simian Mobile Disco, La Roux and Soulwax; and getting booked to bring her unique sound all over the UK and Europe. She has played at some of the most influential and musically credible nightspots in the country including Ministry Of Sound, Bugged Out, XOYO, The Sub Club, The Warehouse Project, Trash, Optimo, Glasgow Arches, Bestival, Field Day, Festival No 6, The Bugged Out Weekender any many more.
She can always be relied upon to rock a dance floor whatever the musical persuasion of the crowd. Her sets are as diverse as they are engaging, educational without ever being condescending, and never, ever predictable. In London Nadia now runs and promotes the musically forward thinking night 'Night Dubbing' - a hotmix of boogie, soul and extended dance classics. Nadia also presents the popular fortnightly show Rhythm Connection on London's critically acclaimed NTS Radio with Dan Beaumont with guests including: Nile Rodgers (Chic), Robert Owens, Xpress 2, Bicep, Daniel Avery, Axel Boman, DJ Harvey, The Black Madonna, Horse Meat Disco and Optimo.
