Niko B has shared the news of his debut UK tour, alongside an incredible new garage-inspired track “It’s All Gone”. Landing in the wake of his stand-out Reading & Leeds performance. The new track is yet another instant classic. Tickets are on sale now.
“It’s All Gone” provides more insight into the uniquely absurd and mundane world of Niko B. With an Ainsley Harriott reference and his signature “day-in-a-life” lyrical style, Niko details the ways his day has gone wrong.
Niko explains: “The inspiration and main focus behind this song was kind of like reminiscing back to old uk house parties that I use to go to all the time during secondary school and how the house would justalways get messed up everything broken it’s all gone wrong but that’s the beauty of it, and yeah I also incapsulated a bit of drum and bass in there aswell nice and high energy, which I’ve not done before which is nice to just broaden my musical genre stuff. Yeah it’s a beautiful song, to just sprint to as well.”
The track follows on from Niko B’s three previous singles “International Baby”, “Quick Drive”, “Who’s That? What’s That?” – the song of a lock-down summer-and his incredible debut “Mary Berry”, which have collectively garnered over 50 million streams. Niko has received nods of approval from the likes of British Vogue, GQ, MTV, Evening Standard, BBC Radio 1, Capital Radio and more – even gaining acclaim internationally from The New York Times.
With parallels to Mike Skinner, Jimothy Lacoste and even Lily Allen, Niko B’s rise from bedroom artist and DIY clothes designer to rising Gen-Z star has been swift and unstoppable.
Niko is a firm one-to-watch for 2021. After his interview of festival goers and longtime idols NSG at Reading Festival in 2019 went viral, he was invited to perform alongside them on their UK OT Bop tour. More than proving his ability to command a crowd, he went on to support Big Heath later that year. In summer 2020, Niko further added to his performance credits with a slot at the virtual Wireless Festival – performing alongside the likes of PA Salieu, & Stefflon Don just to name a few. Niko performanced at the iconic Reading & Leeds festival this summer a dream come true for this teen rapper from Milton Keynes.
The owner of his own clothing line- CROWD, which he started in his early teens to save money and as demand grew, started selling through instagram quickly gaining thousands of fans and allowing him to support himself by the time he left school.
Niko B’s keen observational lyrics and witty style have gained him a fast-growing and loyal following. At just 20 years old, he has sights set high, beginning with his first headline tour.
