Speaking about her new show, Emerald said in a statement: “I’m so ready, excited and happy to begin this new chapter of radio. This show feels like a coming together of all my passions, experiences and knowledge gained over the past decade of my professional life.
“Three hours of my selection of brand new and forthcoming underground club focused dance music across the spectrum. Championing unsung heroes, hidden talent, and established pioneers.
“Expect deep dives into my favourite cities for club culture, explorations from the archives of my favourite record labels old and new, an array of exciting guests consisting of DJs, producers and label heads currently driving the electronic music scene plus guest mixes, b2b’s and live mixes from myself.”
