Ahead of her 4×4 North American tour, burgeoning Australian electronic music producer Ninajirachi today unveils her next wave of new music, teaming up with LA-based multihyphenate artist Izzy Camina for the aptly titled ‘Ninacamina’.
Sitting between techno, club anthem and electro-pop, ‘Ninacamina’ marks the first collaboration for the pair. Off the back off her 2023 EP 4×4, Ninajirachi joins Izzy Camina, LA-based artist and self described ‘Atari Teenage Britney Spears’, known for her self-produced EP Nihilist In The Club and 2023 cyber spiritualist offering ANG3L NUMB3RS. With mixing credits from Wave Racer, Izzy Camina’s icy vocals and metallic edge join Ninajirachi’s retro bloghouse production on ‘Ninacamina’ – a track that feels like stepping into a strobe light as it conjures up an insatiable bassline and elastic beat synonymous with Ninajirachi’s existing pop-inflicted palette.
Izzy Camina shares on the inspiration behind the track, “Cement and ‘Earth’ synonymous with love and human affection. It grounds us but also traps us, seeping into everything. It’s sticky and we can’t remove it. We are stuck.” In celebration of the release, Izzy Camina will be joining Ninajirachi on two dates in Ninajirachi’s 4×4 North American tour, stepping on stage in Los Angeles and New York.

In late 2023, Ninajirachi shared her 4×4 EP, which marked a new artistic era that drew from her earliest influences of electronic music and collected praise from triple j, Crack Magazine, Clash Magazine, Bandcamp, Billboard, Rolling Stone, 10 Magazine and more. This followed her 2022 debut mixtape Second Nature, which saw her move the needle and attribute an impressive list of major career milestones including NME Magazine Australia’s cover story, playlisting on triple j, Best of the Month placements in The Guardian Australia and a nomination for Record of the Year at FBi Radio’s SMAC Awards in November last year.
Firmly cemented her position in the Australian industry and international music landscape, Ninajirachi has capitalised on her travels locally and internationally, having toured North America in 2023 with festival performances at Lollapalooza, Hard Summer, Breakaway Festival, and Imagine Festival. The uniqueness of her abilities extends past virtual limits, with a touring history that includes support shows with Mallrat, Charli XCX, What So Not, and Cashmere Cat, Ninajirachi set the touring circuit alight with sold-out headline shows in both Eora / Sydney and Naarm / Melbourne and a busy 2023 festival season playing Dark Mofo, Wildlands, Beyond The Valley, Field Day and Spilt Milk, of which NME Australia praised her as “the most underrated artist in Australian dance music”.
