International DJ, radio broadcaster and club curator DJ Charlesy is joining 1Xtra to host a Friday night show.
Starting on Friday 9th February 2018, he’ll be on-air each Friday from 7pm till 9pm with a mix-show.
DJ Charlesy said: “So happy to be joining the Radio 1Xtra family – can’t wait to be a part of the station that is forward thinking and is a solid part of the culture. Looking forward to bringing my take on what a Friday night should sound like!”
Charlesy, aka Charles Webster, became known when he was signed by Tinie Tempah as his official tour DJ in 2010, playing large stadium gigs in the UK and internationally. Since then, he’s toured with Bugzy Malone and has gone on to become the resident DJ and curator of the Disturbing Ibiza parties, before expanding into the Dubai club scene.
Mark Strippel, Head of Programmes, BBC Radio 1Xtra and Asian Network said: “1Xtra is an unparalleled platform for championing brand new UK Black music on a global scale. We’re a place where artist journeys begin, where our audience can get involved and share what they think about the latest issues, but also where our DJs bring the party like no other! I’m pleased to welcome Charlesy to the 1Xtra family, bringing that club vibe from the UK to Ibiza, Dubai and beyond, in the mix every Friday night.”
