Each guest will bring three records that are meaningful to them, and Hill will pick a record of each of her guests that defines why she’s chosen to interview them.
The first episode with DJ Zinc will cover pirate radio, the transformation that technological developments have enacted on the rave scene, fatherhood and the evolution of DnB and jungle.

Speaking on her decision to start a dance music-focused podcast, Hill has said, ‘My love for dance music started when I was a child. Some of my earliest memories are hearing trance music in the charts and later being heavily influenced by the eclectic tastes of my big brother.
‘When I finally turned 18, I started to wonder if rave was now different to what it was and whether I’d missed out on the golden days of rave. So, I thought I’d talk to some of the legends in the game and get an education on how music was made, listened to, and the rave scene before I was even born.’
‘The Art Of Rave’ will be available to stream on all platforms from Monday July 6. Listen to the podcast introduction here.
