BBC Radio Cambridgeshire: The Residency - Black Beats

BBC Radio Cambridgeshire - The Residency: Black Beats press release - December 2018. 

As part of the recent revamped evening schedule on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire, The Residency gives listeners a weekly opportunity to talk about a local fascination, a chance to share great stories and memories with the county.  

Throughout December and January, Broadcaster, DJ and music tastemaker Edward Adoo will take over the reigns for a five week stint exploring black beats and sounds in Cambridgeshire with help from listeners, DJs, artists and people who have made the black music scene in Cambridgeshire what it is today.


Edward explains why he is overjoyed at the opportunity to take listeners directly on to the dancefloor and introduce them to the people who are part of that scene... 

"Black music, past, present and future has major roots in the Cambridgeshire area from Peterborough to Cambridge and beyond. There are stories, weekly nights and experiences that are often told but never get mentioned. I'll be able to explore this over five weeks with help from listeners through black beats and sounds on The Residency by celebrating the eclectic sounds of black music in all forms from Reggae, Soul, Disco, R&B, Hip Hop to House and beyond taking listeners directly on to the dancefloor." 

Edward will also showcase live music sessions from artists who are part of the current scene, guest DJ mixes from local DJs along with tipping his 'Future Stars' through BBC Music Introducing in Cambridgeshire and the wider independent local scene. The weekly two hour show will be a celebration of black music in Cambridgeshire.

BBC World Service: Global Beats, Global DJ's ...

I have always been fascinated about electronic music and how club culture is embraced across the world.

Well, the BBC World Service have given me an opportunity to find out more about clubbing and host this month's edition of Global Beats.

I will be finding out what people are dancing to and why those tunes are special from DJ's based in Pakistan, Croatia, Venezuela and other countries. 

It will be aired on the BBC World Service this weekend. Tune in on Saturday 16th at 2pm.
