Interview with Laurie Charlesworth (Part 2)
As a DJ and presenter, you are highlighting and promoting artists - how important is diversity to you? Do you consider this in your choice of music?
Yes! Absolutely. I believe it’s the easy way out to just pick tunes that you like from obvious labels. Of course, you could do this, and you should always play something you think is good that will fit into your set, but if you dig deep enough, you will find what you’re looking for from an array of different people, not just white, middle aged men. Soundcloud is great for finding undiscovered new talent.
