Ronnie Herel is a true ambassador of Urban Music so it was no surprise when Radio 1's sister station BBC 1Xtra, snapped him up as one of their first DJ signings. Formerly presenting their specialist slot The BBC Radio 1Xtra R&B Show Mondays 10pm - 1am & The BBC Radio 1Xtra Showcase on BBC Radio 1, Sundays 3am - 5am (Saturday nights) Ronnie has decided it is now time to move on after 10 years at the BBC. Ronnie truly loved playing his mix of urban music to a national and international audience and parted company with BBC radio 1xtra being the most listened to DJ via the 1Xtra website. For his specialist show he interviewed some of the greats in the world of music from Stevie Wonder, Beyonce, Mary J Blige, Erykah Badu, Mariah Carey, Dizzee Rascal, Justin Timberlake, Janet Jackson, Estelle, JLS, Alicia Keys to name but a few, along with supporting new talent, giving them the opportunity to receive a greater audience.
He now presents The Big R&B Show on Mi-Soul radio (www.mi-soul.com) every Monday night from 9pm Midnight.
Ronnie has more than paid his dues in the R&B club scene which date back to 1989 with his first DJ promotion The Kat Club at Bar Rhumba (London). Moving on from this Ronnie established himself further with two impressive London residences Club YoYo and Funk @ Sound. He also joined Trevor Nelson at the MTV Lick Parties in Ayia Napa and Leeds and on the Radio 1 stage at the Notting Hill Carnival, all this led to Ronnie being voted best club DJ by the readers of Blues & Soul magazine in 2000. Ronnie's success has further been recognized with two MOBO nominations in the categories of Best Radio Show and UK Best Club DJ. At the moment you can catch Ronnie at his weekly London Residency @ his end of the month Friday residency @ The Drunken Monkey (London). Internationally he spins in Ayia Napa, Dubai, Switzerland, Jersey, Croatia, Ibiza and Russia, also being a veteran DJ at the legendary Southport Weekenders and SunceBeat festival in Croatia.
