Saoirse - Groove Magazine Podcast

As a newly appointed Radio 1 Resident, it’s always going to be a special event when Saoirse graces the decks. Having grafted for years at her craft, it’s fair to say she’s a purist and perfectionist. Saoirse is confidently in control of her sound, the product of an already long and varied musical journey. Her interest in and comfort with such a range of genres means she is capable of effortlessly weaving sounds together, with equal measures of ease and style.

Smokey Bubblin B - Old Skool UKG Mix

Smokey ‘Bubblin’ B is one of, if not the most active DJ/Producers in the Garage scene with a career spanning over 8 years, releasing on the likes of Conducta’s Kiwi Rekords and more. Having collaborated with some of the finest names in the House & Garage scene such as Mind Of A Dragon, Evil B Vs BLive, DJ Hatcha and loads more, Smokey Bubblin B steps out with his latest mix for Hatcha’s newly founded National Hype Service (NHS) of old school UKG classics.

Echelon & Matt Jam Lamont - Undagrnd Freqz Label

Echelon has re-established his longstanding partnership with UKG royalty Matt Jam Lamont, and together they’ve fired up a brand new label, Undagrnd Freqz. Echelon & Matt’s production history goes back more than a decade and includes remixes and productions for the likes of Rosie Gaines, Craig David, Champion Records and many more. This project is about linking the past with the future, connecting new talent with established artists, and being an outlet to bring great Garage music to the world.
