About BBC 1Xtra

Listen online to the internet radio of BBC 1Xtra live, the sister station of BBC Radio 1. Launched in 2002 in response to the growing popularity of underground music, the public broadcaster established a separate station with a focus on urban dance and contemporary rhythmic music. The target audience for radio 1Xtra is slightly younger than that of its parent station, with most listeners falling under the age of 30. The station's playlist features the latest music from a diverse range of genres and subgenres, primarily within the realm of black music, including hip-hop, R&B, house, drum & bass, garage, afrobeat, dancehall, and soca. BBC Radio 1Xtra's exceptional musical lineup is curated by DJs such as DJ Target, Snoochie Shy, Trevor Nelson, David Rodigan, Nadia Jae, Reece Parkinson, and Kenny Allstar.
