The first songs I have memory of are from an old Ibiza's "Café del Mar" record that I used to listen to as a child on a cassette player.
While growing up I had the opportunity to explore my parent's record collection, discovering people like Pink Floyd, Phil Collins & Nick Drake among many others great musicians of that time.
I first started making music with some friends during high school, inspired by everything that was rock-alternative-grunge related, especially Red Hot Chili Peppers, Linkin Park & Nirvana.
Then, we went through various projects and formations, while trying to incorporate in our style all the new finds we were falling in love with: Radiohead, Gorillaz, Muse & tons of a new, undiscovered (if not as a child) thing: electronic music.
During the last years of my degree I started producing, while keeping listenening to everything that gave me pleasure: Flume, Gramatik & Nujabes are great examples but, the artist whose music has deeply marked (and somehow changed) my life is Shlohmo.
In 2019, driven by the desire to create the music I couldn't ear around, I decided to start the first solo project of my life under the name of Shibui Nigai.
Born, raised & actually in Milan, Italy.
