Since its launch two years ago, Radar Radio has become the new champion for the breakout sounds of London’s next generation. With an ethos that’s all about breaking new culture and harnessing young talent, its Islington HQ has become just as familiar for its free production and DJ workshops as it has for being the epicenter of London's newest sounds in grime, Afrobeats, house and techno.

It's this attitude towards innovation that led Radar Radio and Nike to team up and provide a week's worth of workshops at London: ON AIR's The Studioa collaborative space in the heart of Londonaimed to inspire and foster young creative talent throughout Air Max Week. We spoke with Radar Radio mainstay Scratcha DVA, who is just one of the week's guest mentors, on the spirit of innovation and energy in UK music in 2017.
