Sarah Love is a music scene veteran in the UK and worldwide.
Originally playing jazz & funk drums when she was nine years old, Sarah began singing, composing and producing from the age of 12, and in her late teens she studied for a degree in Popular Music and Recording at one of the UK’s most respected music schools.
With a genetic talent for music, over the last half-dozen years Sarah’s skills on the wheels of steel have been honed and recognized in live performances throughout five continents, and on urban music radio in the UK, USA, Australasia and Africa.
Sarah has emerged as an international club DJ in an essentially male-dominated game, an elegant strong young woman.
Well respected for innovation, Sarah has worked as an official MTV Soundsystem DJ helping to launch MTV Base Africa and performing live at numerous MTV events in Europe. As well as routinely playing alongside the legends of British hip-hop, Sarah has worked with American icons The Roots, KRS One, Grandmaster Flash, Raekwon of the Wu-Tang Clan and many more.
Sarah is host of the Hip Hop Mix Show on BBC Radio 1Xtra and broadcasts every week to a worldwide audience. Her show is the only spot in the UK to supply fours hours of the freshest hip hop live in the mix. And from September 2008, Sarah is also presenting the Early Morning Weekend Breakfast Show for BBC Radio 1Xtra on Saturdays and Sundays.
Sarah is an official VJ for MTV Base presenting features on Trevor Nelson’s ‘The Lick’: ‘Spanking New Music’, her own monthly feature ‘Good Look’ as well as ‘DJ Takeover’ televised throughout the UK and to over 60 countries worldwide.
Sarah is MTV BASE’s only female face and embodies music depth, grace, and charisma in all her TV projects!
