As Reprezent Radio heads into an impressive 10th year, DJ Mag visited them at their Brixton studios to take a deeper look at the work of our Best of British 2020 Outstanding Contribution winners.
The station’s origins are in a one-month Restricted Service Licence which allowed Reprezent to launch with a promise to focus on youth issues including gun and knife crime. Their first broadcast was a successful one that enabled them to apply for, and ultimately be granted, a community radio licence which has allowed it to continue broadcasting live across London on 107.3FM, as well as on DAB radio.
The station’s simple but serious slogan is The Sound Of Young London, and to that end it is focused on giving young people in the capital access to a platform where they can discuss the issues that matter to them, where their views are fairly represented and negative stereotypes are dispelled, all next to a selection of music that is underground, exciting and relevant to them.
