Lara and I host a monthly slot on internet radio station, Sub FM where we curate the UK Bass Music show representing music we love and write about on our blog, ukbassmusic.com
Whilst we're still starting out and getting used to the technicals (neither of us are DJs) the idea of being able to present some of the amazing music we get sent to our listeners is what helps crack the initial nerves... it's about the music and the spreading of the love first and foremost, we also stream our faces live over on facebook each show to increase the reach of the sounds.
You can lock in every 4 Monday's (next one 11th Jan 2018) and in the meantime you can listen or watch back the shows and appreciate this sick music with us.
When Hospital Records asked for women involved in the industry to be a part of a campaign promoting the #MeToo message I signed up - so you may or may not see my face included in this powerful music video for the Inja x Whiney track, 'She Just Wanna Dance'
"After going viral last year with his spoken word poem for HuffPost UK 'She Just Wanna Dance', Inja's powerful and important commentry on harrassment in club culture has been given a D+B rework by Med School young-gun Whiney."
The track is taken from Inja's LP, 'Blank Pages' which you can buy or stream here
That first sight of the Amazon (Jungle & River) from the plane was such an intensely overwhelming moment. Even now I'm still in disbelief that we're actually here, it feels like a dream! I definitely maybe did a little cry when we saw the beautifully green rainforest from a distance.
We had been told by the retreat that a taxi would collect us from Iquitos airport, and under no circumstance to get into any other unauthorised taxi so we found the guy holding the card with our names on and he led the way to the 'taxi'.
Now, this was a clear indicator of just how conditioned my mind is to certain 'luxuries' in life because can you imagine the look on our faces when this was our taxi?
What an adventure!
After dropping our stuff off we had a little tour of Iquitos with one of the 'tour guides' who honed in on us whilst we were admiring the Amazon close up (we learned this was a perfect place for them to pick up wandering Gringos) walking through a marke…
Lara and I headed down to the Subtle FM Studios to present the UK Bass Music show where we spend two hours playing and introducing some absolutely fantastic music we've been sent from musicians you may have heard of and some you may not, all is guaranteed to be amazing.
This show we kept it pretty chilled, some nice melodic vibes selecting from genres such as Dubstep, Drum & Bass and Reggae.
If you fancy a listen (and a watch), hit play below, and thanks so much for the support :) x
A couple of years ago I wrote on this blog about how much I would love to present my own radio show. It's something that has been in the back of my mind for years and years but my lack of personal confidence always stopped me from pursuing it seriously.
Amazingly, off the back of that post I was invited to appear as a guest host for the TRAP93 show on Reprezent FM which was a fantastic experience at a well-run community based station that is doing great things, and seeing how supportive their environment is for it's members and the artists it features and promotes really watered my interest in the world of radio.
Fast forwarding to 2018 (how has time gone so quickly?) I am now presenting the UK Bass Music show with my co-host, Lara on Subtle FM. It's a monthly show, and although we've only presented two shows from the studio so far, I'm becoming more comfortable and (hopefully) more entertaining for the listeners. The most important thing is that the music we play …
