DJ: Rinse FM
Established as the voice of Saturday morning on Rinse FM over the past 3 years, Jyoty’s inimitable skill as an interviewer and musical selector has won her a loyal following the world over.
The Amsterdam-born, London-based DJ’s rise to becoming one of the underground’s most loved figures is a story of sheer dedication. Her introduction came through online channel Boiler Room, where her personality managing the door at events landed her a spot hosting shows for the burgeoning platform. A regular spot on world renowned radio station Rinse FM soon followed, where her knack for discovering new music and ability to connect with guests shone through, quickly racking up regular listeners from all over the globe in their thousands. It didn’t just stay there.. Jyoty can be heard on the airwaves spinning tunes on stations like Red Light Radio, Balamii, The Lot, Boxout FM and many more. Next to that she is also a creative producer at Mixcloud (the global community for audio culture), working on Brand Partnerships projects.
When she isn’t DJing at clubs and festivals the world over, including Good Room (NYC) Music Box (Lisbon) and Melt! Festival, Jyoty is keen to use her platform to give back to communities. In a nod to her Indian heritage, she hosted DJ workshops for women in Calcutta alongside the British Council, and taught a six week course for young British Asian women looking to break into the music industry. Of these experiences, she says: “Passing on knowledge and experience is key to making a real change in music”.
