Rinse FM is 18 years old and with 18 being the average age of the Rinse listener (I just conjured up that stat. by the way so don’t quote me) this is an epic landmark. Although many DJ’s and MC’s have all played a massive part in this great acheivement, I have to give a standing ovation to the man with the plan Geeneus.

From 1994 to date the man has put his heart and soul into building a home for cutting edge urban music and has been instrumental in the careers of many of the new DJ’s and MC’s and responsible for giving airtime to the genres like Grime, Dubstep and UK Funky propelling  them to the successes they are now. Even the BBC owes a debt of gratitude to Pirates like Rinse for providing them with a breeding ground for hot new DJ talent.

To celebrate Rinse is having an epic party and they are releasing this 18 part documentary of the history of Rinse from the those who built it. Checkout some of the other episodes below.
