Broadcaster / NTS, Club DJ, Voice Over
DEBONAIR, also known as Debi Ghose, is a broadcaster, club DJ, and voiceover. She first started presenting radio as a student, going on to work in production at BBC 6 Music, Radio 4 and the U.S.’s NPR, as well as presenting The Brixton Allstars on Resonance FM.
In 2011, DEBONAIR joined NTS Radio at the onset, and as Programme Director she ensured the station reflected the most innovative and underrepresented music and speech radio, bringing shows such as Blackest Ever Black, Bahamian Moor and Lucifer Over London to the airwaves.
These days she's focussed on her own sound, holding down a prime-time slot on NTS, where her biweekly sessions have gained a loyal following thanks to her on-point selections of post-punk, coldwave, EBM, techno, italo and classic house.
She regularly steps out of the studio to play parties on London’s underground club circuit and has developed a reputation for delivering punchy, dynamic sets at venues like Fabric, Oval Space and Corsica Studios. She’s as comfortable on a bill with an out-there experimentalist like Fis as she is with a freewheeling party DJ like DMX Krew and brings these two worlds together at Linear Space, the party she co-runs.
Catch DEBONAIR’s show on NTS every other Thursday, from 5-6pm, and see her take control of a basement or warehouse near you soon. She brings her signature style to both situations, shedding light on hidden gems with precise placement and energy.
"I'm most looking forward to speaking to the new generation of broadcasters, and trying to decipher how the latest technology, platforms and talent are going to shape the future of radio."
