Tiffany Calver kicked off her new BBC Radio 1 Xtra residency on Friday night (9th June).

South African amapiano stars Major League DJz, joined the previous DJ Mag cover star in the studio with a live guest mix, with additional guest contributions coming from SHERELLE and Nia Archives.

The Tiffany Calver Show will take its lead from the host's highly varied and energy-packed sets, which have made an impact everywhere from basement clubs to Drake's UK and European tour dates, and Paris Fashion Week. Covering baile funk, UK funky, amapiano, hip-hop, Afrobeats, R&B, garage and more, the announcement is just one in a number of scheduling changes at the station.  

Calver described the show, which will air every Friday from 9PM - 11pm, as "a chance to bring all elements of me - from NTS and Radar days to who I am now - all into one place".

She has also shared a call out for music submissions, encouraging people to send music and edits for a chance to be played on the show. Check out the first show over at BBC Radio 1Xtra here.

Calver – who made history as the first female DJ to host the Rap Show on BBC Radio 1Xtra – chatted to DJ Mag's Christine Ochefu about her journey to the top. Revisit the 2022 interview here.
