In 2014 a dream came true when I was contacted by BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra DJ Charlie Sloth to voice and intro for his very first Radio 1 Rap Show. When I was a young boy I was obsessed by HipHop and listened to Mike Allen on Capital, the Tim Westwood rap show on Radio 1 and Dave Pearce on Radio London. This was an absolute honour and I had to pinch myself!
As this is an urban music show, I was asked to play a little and create character voices that would fit the HipHop and rap music Charlie plays, as well as Grime. I came up with some rough, cockney gangster voices as well as a deep US movie trailer style voice for the intro. When you click on his rap show on the BBC iPlayer, my voice is the first you’ll hear warning you about the adult content!
Here’s a selection of the voiceovers he uses.
If you’re looking to freshen up your station sound and need a new imaging voice or character voices, please get in touch and I’ll be happy to work with you to get the sound that best represents your radio station and brand.
