In many ways, Shivum is your R&B-loving homeboy. He loves Kali Uchis, has had Kumail on daily rotation of late, and dreams of being in the studio with Blood Orange. When he spills about “flipping through music channels on his new satellite box for hours,” as an urban millennial raised on VH1, you can relate. Growing up around South Asian music, the half-Irish Londoner harbours a soft spot for Pakistani disco queen Nazia Hassan.
When the 25-year-old singer-songwriter, producer and DJ dropped his debut EP in 2014, little did he know that ‘Flicker‘, a song he wrote on the fly, would garner a million hits overnight, or that he would be hailed as “London’s new soul hero” (by Dazed and Confused).
