One more week before the new Rhythm Lab site. The new site will have a new name and a new look. The actual radio show name will remain the same. It is going to be huge (well at least huge for me). This week's show marks the return of our friend, dj, radio producer, and tastemaker from across the pond Karen P and Karen P Presents. Once a month Karen P, showcases some of her favorite tunes. You can check her out here and her new company Folded Wing.
About Karen P:
Karen Pearson is an extremely accomplished Radio Producer, Podcast / Internet Communications Pioneer, a talented Club Promoter / DJ and now, director of Karen P Productions - an Award Winning Audio Production Company.
Karen established herself at the tender age of 23 as the youngest producer at BBC Radio One, on Gilles Peterson’s weekly ‘Worldwide’ broadcasting phenomenon. She enhanced the original ‘join the dots’ concept of the show, while changing the format, by organising sessions and live events, and introducing established artists whilst continuing to nurture new talents. Under Karen’s watchful eye, the Radio 1 Worldwide show toured the UK and international spots at the Miami Winter Music Conference, Sonar Electronic Festival in Barcelona and Exit in Serbia among many more.
Leaving the Worldwide show, Karen quickly established herself as a global authority on Podcasts and “post-broadcast” audio, setting up groundbreaking projects and platforms such as Red Bull Music Academy Radio and working with a host of clients including the BBC, Roundhouse Radio and more recently nightclub Fabric & Bowers & Wilkins Speakers. Her company, Karen P Productions has just been awarded a Sony Radio Academy Gold award - the highest accolade on offer from the radio industry - for the innovative Literary Podcast ‘Book Slam’.
