G BREEZY (GEMMA)

Showtime:  Weekly show alongside Tyramyx The Heavy Session - every Friday night from 11pm until 1am.


Gemma Brennand (aka G-Breezy) is a Preston-born DJ, presenter, and musician in the drum and bass and jungle scene. Her passion was ignited after an introduction from her big brother who introduced her to the rave scene, to drum and bass, and to sound system culture. In April 2016, Gemma and her brother ran their first ‘Spin City’ Jungle event at The Ferret in Preston and this is what inspired her to pick up her headphones and have a go at DJ’ing, and to begin her journey of learning to write and produce music.


Currently, she is studying a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music Production and Performance at the University of Central Lancashire.  She loves doing the show as it enables her to further push the Lancashire DNB/Jungle scene and to promote the new and upcoming artists she crosses paths with locally (and keeps her up to date with fresh music within the genre!).


In addition to the above, G-Breezy is a keen skateboarder and runs monthly female-only Skateboard & Open Decks events in order to give females a platform to practice DJing in front of people, and can usually be found shifting sound gear around the North West supporting other music events she is involved in.

MICK YEADON

SUNDAY VIBEZ  4pm - 6pm

Mick comes from a musical background having played Trumpet and Cornet in Orchestra and Brass Band.


In 1973 his love of Soul music took him in the direction of DJing. His parents had started a youth Club called the “Friday Club” at St Marys Church Hall in Penwortham. To raise funds monthly discos were organized and Mick was bitten by the DJ bug. A 100 children attended the first few but very quickly attendances shot up to 320 children with his style of music and reading of his audiences. Other Churches in Longton and New Longton soon joined in and Mick was followed from one venue to the next by these children. These ran for 10 years!


By 1975 he was regularly doing weddings, 21st, and corporate events and compéred for the Brass Band Concerts. DJing took him to big hotels at Lytham like the St Ives and Delmeny and over the years throughout the North West including more recently Social 7 at Media City.


Though he still does his mobile work Mick has always wanted to do Radio, and now his wish has come true and gets to play his favourite genre.

CLIFF TOWNSEND

SUNDAY NIGHT NICENESS 8pm - 10pm

I began Dj'ing way back in 1982 bringing soul, funk & R&B nights to the pubs and clubs of Salford, Warrington & Leigh.


I moved over to Spain in 1987 for a lifestyle change and different work but continued to do guest DJ spots in the clubs of Tenerife and Mallorca !!


I got into the rave scene and played lots of house and techno stuff but my heart was always into the soul, funk & R&B vibe. 


My  Youtube stuff also really took off and I now have nearly 70k followers and another 2,500 on Mixcloud somehow !!


I decided to start live streaming my sets anyway and hopefully entertain a few people along the way!


I hope you like my style of music and mixing ( although I'm far from the greatest haha ! ).

With over 3 decades of relevant experience and amassing a wealth of credible industry links in the process, Compton is no stranger to radio. Having been part of the original team who officially put Preston on the urban music map many moons ago, it's fair to say that he knows what he's talking about. He has always tried to push new music to the masses and thrives on the changes (and challenges) that this represents.

Currently hosting The Sheets Urban Wave, he uses the show to focus on the future of music from the world of RnB, Rap and Club. The show is widely considered part of the cherished ' Urban Tastemaker' community where exclusive forthcoming material is often showcased from both the big names and smaller independents who also deserve their time to shine.

The show provides an eclectic mix of future flavours, remixes and a sprinkling of extra spice to keep you on your toes.

The future of urban music is here...

The future of urban music is now...

Get on board, buckle up, and enjoy the bumpy ride...
