Nashuan’s debut EP evokes the imagery of smokey dancefloors from an era long passed


From the catchy key riffs of 'Badj'a' to the plucky guitar overlaid with soulful vocal samples in 'Butterbean', Nashuan's debut EP is an exquisite work of instrumental funk.

This retro, glittering instrumental disco album is the self-titled debut EP of Nashuan. A work of tight, handcrafted funk, complete with soaring guitar riffs and groovy keys finely tuned with beautifully calibrated production, it’s a modern nod to the era that birthed groove.

Thick bass lines and Afro-infused beats are interspersed with powerfully soulful vocalisations, demonstrating a signature sound that brings the fundamentals of dancefloor groove to the forefront. Nashuan’s powerfully crafted first release delves deep into the nucleus of funk for a finely crafted album that hits the hips as much as the heart.
