The latest announcement sees the London radio station branch out from its roots as championing the UK underground, although the additions of Chamber 45, DJ Hype, Girls Don’t Sync’s G33, Fracture, Lu.Re, MJK and SICARIA still uphold its traditions in garage, grime, dubstep and jungle.

There is a notable shift towards house-adjacent sounds through the likes of George FitzGerald, Isaac Carter, Kwali, Love Child, and Manuel Darquart.

“These new residencies reflect the evolution of Rinse and the diversification of its sound,” concurs Miguel Estevez, Rinse’s head of curation.

“The last few years have been a project where we’ve rebuilt our platform and story.”
