Eastman has been a driving force in the jungle / drum & bass scene for over three decades, with his Kool FM radio station being instrumental in promoting and supporting emerging talent, and helping to launch the careers of some of the UK’s most successful artists.
In this in depth, and at times emotional, interview with DJ Ron, the Governor General opens up about his life story, the challenges he has faced growing up in Hackney, his love of sound system culture, how he got into the rave scene and his involvement with the pivotal London events Telepathy & of course Jungle Fever.
They also discuss how Eastman got into running Kool FM, the recent takeover by Rinse FM, the personal challenges he faced during the changeover, his admiration for the new owners, and his plans for the future.
The London Something Podcast is essential listening if you want to hear the REAL story of the early days of our scene from the people who helped build it!
