Charlie Boon joins the Spotlight Mix Series


Growing up above his Dad’s nightclub in St Ives, Cornwall, Charlie Boon’s path was pathed from early. Now 25 and based in London, 2022 has been his breakthrough year, with two much-loved singles (ft Rileasa Slaves), and his energetic DJ sets building a legion of fans and loves from his peers.

His music has been strongly supported by BBC Radio 1, with over 80+ plays, championed by BBC Introducing and the likes of Skream, TSHA, Eliza Rose, Dan Shake, Jodie Harsh, Danny Howard and Sarah Story. September saw his Peak Time mix on Sarah Storys’ Radio 1 show.

Rising DJ-producer Charlie Boon and Meg Ward kick off a massive year with club heater Turn Up The Bass (Pump It Up) via Virgin Music’s LG105 / Dad Bod Boogie

With Charlie Boon returning to LG105 for 2023, the two breakthrough talents unite for the upfront house anthem Turn Up The Bass (Pump It Up). Motivated by old-school flavours, Charlie explains, “I started this track a while ago when I was listening to a lot of 90s dutch house and was really inspired by that sound of ravey fun energy that is perfect for the clubs. It’s a pleasure to also have Meg’s vocals on this track as her sick vocal style compliments the raw pumping vibe of the release.”

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
