Contractor featured on BBC Radio London

Just days into his summer-long European tour, Sean 'Contractor' Edwards has been featured on BBC Radio London.

The St Ann-based marketing guru was featured last week on Dotun Adebayao's show, which features black music and current affairs programmes for London's black community.

The show, which was aired on June 15, highlighted the works of Contractor's company, Contractor Music Marketing, which continues to do high-quality and successful work for the likes of Downsound Records, Morgan Heritage, Capleton, Norwegian reggae artiste Nico D, and a host of other international and local clients.

The station broadcasts across the Greater London Division and beyond, on the 94.9 FM frequency, Virgin Media Channel 937, Sky Channel 0152, and Freeview Channel 712. Audience listening figures variy on BBC Radio London and has a reach in London of approximately 504,000.

The programmes are mostly speech-heavy and include studio guests and music in varying quantities. Contractor managed to capitalise on the musical diversity of the station. During the interview, Contractor, also a reggae artiste, performed live his single, Break My Promise, produced by Tads Records, and discussed his work with Downsound and the dynamics of current reggae music.

"The feature was an excellent platform to talk about the movements that Downsound Records is undertaking. BBC Radio London is a prestige station and has developed a strong fan base in and outside of London," he said. "Also, it was great to have my song played. Overall, the feature was excellent as we touched on a number of important issues regarding reggae currently."
