Hailing from London, Emerald is a self-taught DJ and broadcaster, who from a young age harnessed her perceptive knack for record-digging to build and refine a portfolio of selections that quickly became her own.
Since her debut on Rinse FM in 2014, Emerald’s journey through the airwaves has seen her hosting her own daily Drivetime broadcast to a specialist radio show and now heading up Rinse FM’s flagship Friday night Electronic show ‘The Dance Show’. The show has received acclaim from inside and outside the genre with peers and listeners alike singing the show's praises. Her journey on radio has further cemented her reputation as both a respected tastemaker and a favoured presenter/ broadcaster.
Speaking at and hosting panel shows including ADE Pro, AVA Festival, ‘Women in Business’ & Smirnoff’s ‘Equalising Music’ campaign, her interviewing skills have also landed her conversations with M.I.A, The Internet, Skream, HAAI, Chase & Status, Black Coffee and many, many more.
Placing focus on championing the unsung heroes of the underground and grassroots dance communities across the UK, Emerald has performed in renowned spaces such as Printworks, The Warehouse Project, Glastonbury Festival, fabric, Lollapalooza and alongside this promoted her own club night & DJ Mag Award-nominated live stream ‘Afters with Emerald’.
Legendary London club space Corsica Studios recently invited Emerald to become a resident at the venue, the South London institution is the perfect space for Emerald to showcase her aesthetic as she plays extended sets and curates’ lineups.
In 2024 Emerald turns the page on a new chapter in her career as an artist as she delivers her debut EP to the world via DJ Haus’ label UTTU, the music has been exceptionally well received with plays coming from key DJs & tastemakers.
Her musical style is best described as “genre-fluid”. She found her distinctive, experimental sound through rhythm rather than genre; her sound encompasses a passion for techno, electro as well as house, acid and ghetto tech - with the odd foray into Jungle and other key waves of dance music that have embedded themselves into UK dance culture.
