DJ Target is a key part of BBC Radio 1Xtra’s weekend line up. He can be heard Friday nights from 7 to 10pm, Saturday & Sunday afternoons from 4 to 7pm and again on Saturday nights on both 1Xtra and Radio 1 from 11pm to 1am.
Whilst still in secondary school, Target gained his first local radio slot on local station Chillin FM, this was followed by guest slots on various other pirate stations until Rinse FM was born in his local area of Bow. Target teamed up with friend Wiley and the pair were an instant hit on the airwaves.
Target is part of Roll Deep. With a line-up including Target, Wiley and Dizzee Rascal, Roll Deep soon established themselves as the leading force in underground UK acts. They signed to Virgin Records and released their debut album ‘In at the Deep End’. The album has sold over 100,000 copies and achieved two top 20 hits in ‘Shake a leg’ and ‘The Avenue’.
After ‘In at the Deep End’, Roll Deep released three independent albums before signing again to Virgin Records in 2010. This saw the release of the number 1 singles ‘Good Times’ and ‘Green Light’ and the group were nominated for a MOBO Award for the 3rd time.
Outside of Roll Deep, DJ Target has produced and worked with the likes of Dizzee Rascal, Wretch, Skepta and many more.
He is very involved with BBC Introducing workshops and classes, and many charities including Love Music Hate Racism, Oxfam, Lives Not Knives and Unite Against Fascism.
