“Rinse was a pirate station that was out of my radar zone as a teenager. I grew up in deep South London, so it was a tape swapping culture.. My first memory of Rinse FM was probably 2000/01, I was in the school canteen and my friend Randy (MC Kiss from Red Alert Crew) came in with a tape he swapped with a guy from East London. These times there was no podcasts, no online radio, no mix tapes or albums. Pirate Radio was our culture, tapes were like gold dust.. So he pops this tape in my Walkman and says 'listen to this yout, he's our age' . It was Dizzee Rascal and Slimzee on Rinse, I still remember pressing play… 'Keep vigilant, keep on guard, we chuck grenades at Scotland Yard’… From that point on I was obsessed with what East London, and more specifically Rinse FM were doing.
Being on Rinse FM is an honour as a DJ; it’s a chance to play the people music that I want them to hear, now on a worldwide scale. Pirate Radio was very much a community thing, now Rinse is an international brand. I'm happy to support and be a part of their movement, with it’s legacy in what I grew up with.
Big up Geeneus who I look up to a lot. Absolute grafter.”
