After broadcasting on Rinse FM in the same slot for well over a decade, as well as presenting BBC Radio 1’s first ever grime & dubstep specialist show, Plastician today announced to fans on Facebook that he would be leaving his weekly slot at Rinse FM.

The artist has announced a break from all broadcasting, with his final Rinse FM show being broadcast later this month on the July 25.

Plastician started life as a broadcaster using dial up internet and playing pirate radio stations in 2000. His dream of playing Rinse FM became reality and Plastician graced our airwaves with the sounds of dubstep and grime in 2003. Shortly after he joined that he was given his own slot - showcasing tracks without an MC.

Writing about his decision, Plastician said: "It is a decision I’ve come to after a very long time considering my options, and have discussed at length with the family at Rinse. Although this is the end of my weekly show, my relationship with Rinse will continue and I’m sure there will be opportunities for people to hear me on there for special one off broadcasts and events in the future."
