I spoke to Emma Finamore about some of my early pirate radio experiences for this FACT magazine article:
Women pioneers of pirate radio
A nice trip down memory lane, and reminder of my accomplishments/ how far we’ve all come. Big love to original Flex, Pressure, Rinse and other pirate crews for giving me space to contribute to the progression of underground music culture.
looking forward to linking up again with Storm, and long time friend Stamina, for #RedBullMusicOdyssey: 6 boats are taking over London’s River Thames in celebration UK underground music culture! SPY and Serum are the missing names. big up Captain Kyrist!

I’m really looking forward to this gig! returning to the great Wire Club in Leeds to play a More Styles set for Pearson Sound’s Acetate. expect a mix of house, techno, disco, garage, 140/ dubstep, hardcore, jungle, and maybe a little dub reggae. all on vinyl, through a rotary mixer. can’t wait.

On Sunday 25th March I had the honour and pleasure of joining my friend and mentor DJ Storm for a Radar Radio takeover, along with a bunch of long-time D&B faves and pals. It was such a great day! Links to video/ audio archives are here for anyone that missed the 8-hour stream, or just want to check it again…

Love to Storm for the invite, and all the crew for being fabulous xx
For anyone that missed it, I guested on Kate Hutchinson’s Worldwide FM show Thursday 8th March, as part of the station’s all-women line-up of programmes for International Women’s Day 2018.
It was fun, and great to meet DJs Elayne and Camilla – who I’d either grown up hearing/seeing in media, or reading about their involvement in LWR, Dread Broadcasting Corporation etc. Definitely could’ve done with being a 2-hour show, at least!
