For the last 10 years she’s been one of the founding and most regular hosts on NTS Radio; her diverse musical family. She’s gained a dedicated following for her show, Midnight Marauders, by playing new music that makes her heart sing.
She has a deep understanding of the evolution of black British music over the last two decades, and she’s been on the cusp of club culture from the Rare Groove movement of the early 90s to Jungle evolving into Drum and Bass, Garage to Broken Beat, leading to today’s Neo Soul and the New Jazz wave. She’s often identified unique and genre-defining talent, bringing artists such as The Weeknd, Koreless, INC No World, FKA Twigs, Hiatus Kaiyote, Jessie Ware and Andrew Ashong into the hut, many of which have gone on to win major accolades.
Much of her career has seen her nurture talent as a music consultant. She has more than 15 years experience working with artists at all levels, from mentoring marginalised youth and developing their own voice to sourcing music for commercial names. As a creative developer she began by working with a wide range of young people, devising and delivering visual and performing arts-based projects – from radio plays to musical theatre productions and informal education programmes. In her time with NTS she’s also trained many of the young producers.
Working on projects like these has given her the ability to both collaborate and showcase her skills, as well as support new artists in their personal development. Throughout her career she has cultivated an unrivaled, valuable global network consisting of labels, production companies and major label artists as well as independent, homegrown artists.
