Friday 13: Unlucky for some, but definitely not for drum & bass fans as Andy C will launch a brand new radio show for Beats 1.
Announced by the Ram Records founder himself today on Julie Adenuga’s show, the two hour Andy C Presents show will commence this Friday and be broadcast fortnightly thereafter at 11pm GMT (and repeated at 11am the following Saturday morning)
Marking well over 15 years since he last hosted a regular radio show – his Kiss FM shows during the late 90s/early 2000s are stuff of legend – Andy C Presents is the first specialist drum & bass show on Beats 1 since it launched in 2015.
The shows promises unreleased dubs, exclusive sets and recordings from Andy’s current XOYO residency, insight into classic tracks and drum & bass history in a section called Ram Raided and Andy’s personal take on the most exciting drum & bass being made right now.
This show is an opportunity to explore the diversity, energy, history, heritage and future of D&B! We will be giving you the background on some of the biggest tunes ever in the scene as well as throwing a spotlight on the future classics. Also, through my London residency at XOYO, we will be showcasing live DJ mixes from some of the biggest artists in D&B. Overall it is a celebration of all things D&B and I am very privileged to be able to present it to you on Apple Music, Beats 1.” – Andy C
Complete with his XOYO residency launching (and selling out) last week, Andy C is shredding into the new year with an exciting energy. Taking his sets back to intimate club environments and his vibes back to the airwaves, it’s clear Andy is on a mission to celebrate the genre’s roots and remind us where drum & bass came from in the first place.
Andy C Presents launches Friday 13, will be repeated Saturday 14 and available on Apple Music.
