Radio DJ, Presenter, Label Owner, Club DJ, Remixer, Producer – Seani B wears all of these titles.
Born in London, Seani has taken the cosmopolitan surrounding he grew up in and incorporated them into his unique musical blend. From Dancehall to Hip Hop, R&B to House and even Soca to Rock; if it is musical, Seani will be all over it.
In the mid 90’s he amalgamated his technical skills and his knowledge of crowd-pleasing and released a bootleg dancehall reggae remix of the Case and Foxy Brown classic track ‘Touch Me, Tease Me’. Demand grew for his unique sound, which prompted him to set up his own production company, Big League Productions.
Before long, some of the world’s biggest artists were feeling the ‘remix kid’ touch. The likes of Lauryn Hill, Pras, Sugababes, Beverley Knight, Shaggy and Rayvon all came knocking for official mixes, and Seani didn’t disappoint.
The ‘Big League’ record label was next to follow, featured collaborations with the Dancehall A list – Vybz Kartel, Sizzla, TOK & Beenie Man amongst others.
Seani joined BBC 1Xtra at in inception with the award winning show ‘Seani B’s Mixtape’, which went against the grain of conventional single genre music programming at the time.
In 2016 his work as a producer received the ultimate accolade – he won a Grammy for producing tracks on the Morgan heritage album ‘Strictly Roots’.
A true all-rounder, catch Seani on BBC Radio 1Xtra each Thursday from 22.00 UK time.
