One of the most curious and respected selectors in the U.K., Tina Edwards joins the dots between Jazz and club culture.
At home on Worldwide FM - where she’s been a resident for five years - Tina brings together a broad range of sounds; think contemporary and uncovered gems; large-scale jazz, funk, disco, a spectrum of house music and even left-field pop. Nothing is off the table, following in the footsteps of eclectic diggers Folamour and Hunee. The spirit of the UK Jazz sound - which Tina has been championing through her radio and presenting projects since 2014 - is at the epicentre of everything she does.
Tina Edwards has shared line-ups with Gilles Peterson, Colleen Cosmo Murphy, Charlie Dark and Craig Charles. She made her Boiler Room debut in the first lockdown, and is a member of admired communities including Total Refreshment Centre, Worldwide FM and many more within London’s thriving creative scene. Tina played her first festival season in 2021, performing at Lost Village, All Points East, We Out Here and Wild Paths. She holds a Box Park residency all year round.
Tina knows how to win over a room’s trust, to introduce them to something fresh - whether it’s an unexpected change of mood or a hop from a classic to obscurity. That’s why her sets can be heard in a variety of spots, from JazzFM to Radio alHara. She also hosts radio shows for BBC Radio 3 (Jazz Fix) and hosts/produces her series Next Big Thing for British Airways.
