Jaguar launches BBC Introducing Dance
Yesterday, BBC Radio 1 launched a brand new home for undiscovered dance music on Sunday nights, designed solely to showcase the next wave of emerging electronic talent. At the helm is rising star, trusted tastemaker, DJ and friend of DT, Jaguar.
Following on from Huw Stephens’ Introducing show every Sunday night, BBC Introducing Dance will undoubtedly be the start for many new dance acts on Radio 1. Using the BBC Uploader, new producers can upload their productions directly to Jaguar who has already paved the way for newcomers such as Propsa, TSHA, ABSOLUTE., Blueprint, India Jordan, Effy and James Organ. It is no surprise that she has been heralded as ‘the voice of the next generation’ by IMS founder Ben Turner who declared ‘the future of our genre is safe in her hands’.
Jaguar began her own Radio 1 journey as an intern around 4 years long ago, working within the BBC Music team. She has since become an integral part of the BBC Music Introducing family, working behind the scenes to uncover new talent and bring them through the regional BBC Music Introducing shows and into the hands of the Radio 1 presenters. Having immersed herself within the industry as a teenager, Jaguar has cultivated a career through her passion and dedication to the dance music community. She was mentored by The Black Madonna as part of Smirnoff’s #EqualisingMusic programme and is a recognised journalist.
For those aspiring producers looking to land their first play on BBC Radio 1, look no further as this is a new home for you. Send your music through to Jaguar via the BBC Uploader here.
