nu.wav proudly presents No Boys Allowed, a collaboration amongst a collection of largely NYC-based womxn & nonbinary producers coming together to support the rising generation of sonic creatives. All of nu.wav’s proceeds from this pack will be donated to Beats By Girlz, an organization working to empower female & nonbinary youth in music technology by providing them with the guidance and tools to develop their interest and skills in music production, composition, and engineering.
These samples, as diverse as the musicians that created them, span a range of genres including pop, R&B, electronic/experimental, and funk. This pack serves as a testament that musical inspiration can take any form when individuality, empowerment and energy are celebrated and cultivated. Recorded in each producer’s unique studio during the quarantine of spring 2020, this palette of sounds features everything from ripping live instrumental riffs to powerful vocals, vibey pads and grooves, distinctive field recordings and intricately-crafted sonic sculptures. We invite you to dive in and get inspired by the unexpected.
