Plastician leaves Rinse FM after 14 years to create experimental VR broadcasting platform

He wants to bring "pirate radio mentality to an entirely new generation"

A decade and a half is a long time for anyone to stay in one job, especially radio show hosts. After almost reaching that length of service, one of Rinse FM’s top boys has aired his final show on the revered station, and is now setting his sights on a brand new experimental broadcasting platform of his own devising. Introducing Plastician’s Unreality Journeys. 

“For the past few months I’ve been working behind the scenes with a team of talented and creative people to help establish Unreality Journeys as a hub for experimental broadcasting. Together we aim to create a platform that celebrates and broadcasts art in many forms,” the producer and DJ said on Facebook last week. 

“This is just the beginning of the journey, the team is constantly thinking of new and exciting ways to deliver entertaining content and I expect you’ll be seeing art in many forms very soon,” he added. 

It’s certainly a brave move, with Plastician’s Rinse show maintaining its popularity for a staggering 14 years. This ‘new adventure’, as he describes it, will offer an “opportunity to take that pirate radio mentality to an entirely new generation- where we once scrambled for tapes to record our shout outs, now listeners will be able to see them inside the virtual environment”.  

Last year we reported on Boiler Room developing world’s first virtual reality music venue, just a few months after Holland’s Mysteryland became the first festival to have a virtual reality live stream
