Stryda (Dubkasm) Interview
We caught up with Stryda after his 20 years of Sufferers Choice radio show, were he talks about the power of radio and the importance of SWU FM becoming a full time station.
Yesterday’s launch of SWU FM now up for listen again 🔥🔈📻
That was pretty emotional tbh; considering the year we’ve had and how long we’ve wanted a full time legal music station in the city.
So many listeners – couldn’t get to everyone!
Full show airing Wednesday 7-9pm
Was an honour to launch the station

Father Funk’s Church of Love
Event date and time: Feb 15th 10pm
The Church of Love is celebrating its FOURTH BIRTHDAY. What better way to celebrate it than with two wicked parties in two of the best cities on the planet – London and Bristol!
For the Bristol date the congregation will be returning to the Trinity for another biblical bash featuring some of Church Of Love’s all time favourite acts…
Oh My God! It’s The Church (DJ Set)
If you haven’t heard of Oh My God! It’s The Church then you’re in for a treat. A church service like no other – they are one of the most fun live acts on the UK festival circuit. Catch them playing a rare DJ set at the Church of Love, it’s quite literally a match made in heaven!
Hippo Sound System
DJ Hiphoppapotamus’ live band “Hippo Sound System” is another of the best live acts in the scene right now. Featuring a menagerie of talented musicians that bring the Hippos tropical flavoured riddims to life, Hippo Sound System always bring the sunshine to the dance floor.
The Church of Love’s own Father Funk has his own special recipe for rocking the party. Big bass lines, more exclusive remixes than you can shake a stick at, and a wealth of different flavours of fun and funky bass music, from Bass House to Drum & Bass.
Red Bull 3Style finalist, Bristol boy and Church of Love resident X-Ray Ted is another one of our favourite party starters! He just got through to the finals of Red Bull 3Style AND recently supported Fatboy Slim (on a boat no less). His DJ sets include some slick turntablism, next level combos and plenty of original productions.
If there was ever a time to use the phrase “one to watch” – it’s when referring to Mr Stabalina. Although he is relatively new to the scene Mr Stabalina is already absolutely smashing it. Expect some ridiculous mashups, a stupid amount of samples, and a extremely large helping of funk.
Rose Rokoko’s Sleazy Sisters
It wouldn’t be the Church of Love without the Sleazy Sisters! These debaucherous deities are always the life of the party – here to repent your sins and dance all over your bass bins!
