Though Klein was born in London, she hasn’t always resided there. As she was growing up, she relocated to both Lagos and to Los Angeles before returning to her place of birth. Being brought up in a Nigerian household, she was regularly going to church and immersing herself in gospel music. “I learned how to maneuver my voice by watching loads of Kim Burrell videos,” she says. In fact, Klein didn’t start properly discovering music that was outside of gospel and the Top 20 until she was in her final year of school. Klein’s religious upbringing is a cornerstone of her music. In February, she released her debut album "Only," that showcased a gospel-tinged style that’s both disorientating and hypnotic. Klein’s latest EP "Lagata" is a natural progression from Only, but it takes her sound to the next level as unsettling, hi-def glitches rumble loudly and vocal trills show off her range even more impressively. She has recently been featured in Wire Magazine, Dazed and Confused, i-D, and Dummy Magazine.

"[His] playing and the sudden switch in atmosphere he creates feels exhilarating. It's unpredictable, brave, aggressive and fun…Something you should hear more of from DJs playing in London but don't. Not at the city's 'experimental' club nights let alone its regular clubs." - The Quietus
NON is a collective of African artists, and of the diaspora, using sound as their primary media, to articulate the visible and invisible structures that create binaries in society, and in turn distribute power. The exploration of 'non, prior to the adjective, gives intel into the focus of the label, creating sound opposing contemporary canons. // Homepage
