A History of UK Pirate Radio

4 August 2017 @ 10:00 pm - 4:00 am BST

£2 – £5

Re-wind to a heady decade of pirate radio, a melting pot for every major development in London club music, from jungle, to garage, to grime, to dubstep, to funky and beyond. When rival stations battled for a sprawling roster of MCs and selectors and the best spot for their transmitters.

We’ll be taking you through a host of the era’s classic hits – Heartless Crew, Pay As You Go Cartel, Roll Deep, So Solid Crew, Ruff Squad and Nasty Crew – paying homage to a seminal period in UK Bass culture.

Nikki has worked in various positions in the Music industry for over ten years including Artist Management, Booking Agency and Record Label Management. She currently Manages Flowdan, YGG & GHSTLY XXVII + co-runs management and record label company, Spentshell with Flowdan.

“Bass does something to me. I absolutely immersed myself in Drum & Bass during my teens and early twenties, and when Dubstep came along I was thrown into that love once again, not just the music, but the whole community surrounding it.

Working in the industry has been a dream for me, and being involved in such a vibrant scene means that I constantly come across incredibly talented individuals who I just want to shout about and that’s what I use the UKBM platform for, to promote talent whether known or new.”
