Very few prominent figures can lay claim to the influence or cultural relevance of London-raised selector, label boss and all-round tastemaker DJ Target.
Beginning his career spinning records pirate station Rinse FM, Target became actively involved in Wiley’s collective Roll Deep and one of the figureheads of a movement eventually referred to as Grime – bringing about a revolution in the way underground club music was interpreted.
Through his trio of weekly radio appearances on Radio 1 & 1Xtra, Target represents the two facets of his musical presence perfectly. His Friday and Saturday shows are custom-built to display Target’s unparalleled power to control a dancefloor, while his ‘Homegrown’ feature on Sunday’s showcases the most exciting emerging UK artists across all genres.
