ASOS MAGAZINE MEETS NINE8
By Felicia Pennant, 14 December 2018
On how Nine8 began
Libaan: I’ve known Nige since year seven and got to know the whole collective when I started skating with Lava.
Nayana iz: I met Lava last summer and she introduced me to everyone.
On the music
Lorenzorsv: I could have a trap beat with dark tones or do [my song] Summer Outro and you can vibe. [It’s] jumpy even though they’re contrasting sounds.
Lava La Rue: As a black working-class person coming up, there’s drill around me, but I’m queer and there’s not a lot of space within that genre. We’re creating fluid spaces where there’s co-existence from people from all parts.
On what's up next
Biig Piig: We’ve built something inside London but we’re hoping to push it outside.
Bone Slim: World domination… in a nice way.
