Pioneering UK garage head Matt ‘Jam’ Lamont, Shut Up And Dance and drum’n’bass don and original Shut Up And Dance collaborator DJ Hype demonstrate the rich history of the UK underground from 1989 – the year it all began for Boxfresh and a pivotal time in the evolution of the UK’s rave culture and club scene – right the way up to the present day.
This staggering lineup will be kept in line by NTS face Moxie who’ll play a set and act as host throughout the broadcast. And with even more surprise guests and additional content promised, NTS x Boxfresh 1989FM Takeover promises to be a fast-paced and frenetic all-out original roadblock.
This year Boxfresh, one of the UK’s most iconic street wear brands, celebrates its 25th anniversary with an incredible roster of 25 events. The NTS x Boxfresh 1989FM Takeover and the soon-to-launch 1989FM online radio platform are just two of the standout events that form the Boxfresh 25 campaign that celebrate the part Boxfresh has played in youth culture since 1989.
Launching with this special NTS takeover, 1989FM will be an online hub for all Boxfresh music and youth culture content, with special music highlights including sets recorded at Boxfresh 25 events, plus bespoke programming streamed live including interviews with artists, acts and creatives, exclusive audio from participating DJs and much more. An ongoing radio channel on boxfresh.com, 1989FM will also host further takeovers and events throughout the year.
