Coming from the West Country with her roots are firmly planted in Reggae, Drum & Bass and Trip Hop, later branching into other areas of underground dance music genres, such as Acid Jazz, Broken Beat and Deep and Soulful House.

She is like a chameleon and can play most genres with enthusiasm due to her outstanding and diverse knowledge of music.

Angel Mel says “I believe the music should be played the way it was intended without tricks or gimmicks; and by reading the crowd and making sure my sets are fun and inclusive, giving the audience the best experience. With a big smile and infectious energy and dance moves, I bring the ingredients to make any event a night to remember.”

The Journi Continues – A Tribute to Asher

The sudden passing of our beloved presenter Ras Asher, who has given many years of service to the station has left us devastated and in deep shock. Ras Asher was a true humble lion with a versatile music portfolio, from roots reggae to jazz and rare grooves.
Our thoughts are with his children, family, and all those who share our sense of loss.
In honour of his memory we will dedicate his show to the music that he loved and dedicated his life to.
May he be received well on his journey to the next Realm. Asé. 🙏

Asher was a multi-talented creative, Asher was a professional DJ, MC, host and photographer. He was brought up in South London on a mix of gospel, folk, soul, RnB and rare groove. He also loved reggae from an early age.

Asher was with Ujima since the very beginning and had produced and presented shows covering genres from bluebeat, ska, world music, afro beats and many more.

For the last 3 years his Sunday show “The Journi” explored the many different branches of Jazz which Asher pointed out is interconnected with so many other musical genres – influencing some styles and drawing heavily from others.
