Nanci and Phoebe: Nanci Correia and Phoebe Hibbert aka Irondread are the underground sensation at the fore front of the return of this generations Jungle sounds. Their fresh take on hosting DJ sets breaks all genre conventions creating a new eclectic sound, mixing hip-hop flows, powerful and provoking lyrics, booming bass lines and stringent bluesy harmonies. Urban online magazine Who’s Jack wrote that Nanci’s “powerful pipes [to] rival those of Adele and Florence Welch”. Phoebe’s lyrics encapsulates urban living, spiritually relating to, and engaging, a wide politically, emotionally aware audience. Since 2009, based in Brixton South London, the pair have been working as close as a family unit with Congo Natty aka Rebel MC – who brought us the sounds of Jungle back in the 90′s – representing a unity that ignores racial, age or social barriers.
In January 2011, MTVBase added Nanci Correia’s release with Congo Natty, Tenor Fly and Daddy Freddy, ‘Get Ready’ to their video playlist, with their single also receiving prime time airplay from Radio 1 veterans Annie Mac, David Rodigan and Mista Jam.
