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.
Krystal Klear is an artist on the rise. He's released on All City Records, Rinse, Eglo, MadTech, and Cold Tonic, alongside curating his monthly show on Rinse FM and DJing some of the best clubs around the globe.
From his roots in Dublin to attending the star-studded Red Bull Music Academy in Madrid, Krystal Klear’s signature productions blend early-days NYC dance music with a forward-thinking sensibility — in short, this man makes music for the floor!
Kode9 has broadcast his final Rinse FM show, ending a 13-year run on the London station.
The Hyperdub boss began as a host back in 2003, when Rinse was still a pirate station.
Label-affliate Cooly G was the last guest on Kode9's show, which broadcast on 9th October. The Hyperdub boss also paid tribute to the late great footwork pioneer, DJ Rashad, on what would have been his birthday.

Fabio and Grooverider have announced their grand return to radio, joining Rinse FM for a brand new monthly show!
The duo shared the news via Twitter, revealing the new show will start Wednesday 14th September from 9pm to 11pm.
Azealia Banks has issued an official apology for her racist and homophobic Zayn Malik Twitter outburst last week, after taking time to make a “more rational assessment”. The apology came in an Instagram post over the weekend, which you can read below.
After Azealia Banks was dropped from Rinse’s Born & Bred festival yesterday (11th May) after a racist and homophobic Twitter rant, she has issued a new statement addressing the issue on the social media platform.
Having branded Zayn Malik a “curry scented b****” and his mother “a dirty refugee who won’t be granted asylum”, Banks refused to back down, whilst also defending her comments about 14-year-old Disney star Skai Jackson’s mother “pimping” her out.
Following Katy B dropping her new Four Tet and Floating Points collaboration, she’s just announced details of her new album ‘Honey’ - and the tracklist is jawdropping.
Featuring a mammoth selection of artists including Kaytranada, Craig David, Wilkinson, Stamina MC, Chris Lorenzo and Kate Simko, the 13-tracked album will be released by Rinse/Virgin EMI on April 29th.
Slimzee has returned to Rinse FM with a new radio show airing twice a month.
The east London DJ co-founded Rinse FM in 1994 together with Geeneus and Uncle Dugs, running the station for three years from his own bedroom. His Sunday grime show offered a platform to many of the genre's pioneers.
In 2005, Slimzee was hit with an ASBO after Ofcom disconnected his Rinse FM radio receiver. The order banned him from rooftops in Tower Hamlets and brought his regular slot on Rinse to an end.
Following successful releases on Future Classic, Exploited and Ten Thousand, including 2013's huge club smash 'Imperfection', Cardiff whiz kids Bodhi are back with a new EP 'Polysizer' on Rinse Recordings.
DJ Mag has nabbed an exclusive premiere of the EP's title track, which is due to drop via once pirate radio station RinseFM's imprint Rinse Recordings next month — this is one club slammer you won't want to sleep on!
