Square One // Nasty FM
Every Friday 20:00 - 22:00 GMT on www.nasty.fm
Over the past few years, Jo Kira has worked incredibly hard to establish herself within the increasingly competitive Leeds music scene. Most notably, she founded Square One, a monthly club night in Leeds responsible for giving exciting acts such as Canblaster, French Fries and Jam City their debuts in the city. With an extensive knowledge of house, garage, dubstep and grime, her own DJ sets tend to be a blend of all four, pushing an up-to-date and uncompromising UK sound. Jo’s reputation as a talented DJ has carried her far beyond her hometown, having played sets all over the UK.
She is not shy from the airwaves either, she became the only female DJ to hold down a weekly two-hour show on Leeds’s leading underground station, Radio Frequency.
It is therefore unsurprising that Nasty FM wanted to secure Jo for a slot on their station too. Spending almost every moment behind the decks, her track selection and attention to detail shine through in every set and with her name known around the UK and beyond, Jo Kira is most certainly one to keep your eye on.
