I’ve been spinning tracks on Up Late since the beginning of 2013. I have a pretty diverse taste in music, and the good thing about Up Late is that I’m not limited to one genre. For my first few months at the station I played a varied mix of late-night listening from Jazz to Black Metal and, depending on how I felt on the night. Since then I’ve been honing my DJing skills on the decks. In my mixes you can expect anything from: Soul, Reggae, Funk, Disco, Pysch Rock, R&B, Hip-hop, Dancehall, World, Garage, Grime, Drum and Bass, House, and Techno.
I Helped out another presenter with a Radiothon show back in 2012, I was super fascinated by the CD library and the CDJs/Turntables in the studio. Shortly after I signed up for the radio course and helped out a bit around the office and at a few events. I’m now on Up Late a few times a month usually joined with Prince Ali, or other guest DJs.
Being able to be part of a radio station that plays consistently diverse and challenging alternative music is an honour. Getting a call from a listener late at night that just wants to say they’re enjoying the music is a great feeling too.
I’ve had some long and interesting conversations with some intoxicated people who call up the studio and just want someone to talk to.
I’d love to present Jamdown Vershun. I’m pretty passionate about reggae music and its many subgenres. I think Jamaican popular music has had an undeniable influence on today’s musical landscape that many people don’t realise.
