About Sir Spyro
As a producer, radio host and DJ, Sir Spyro’s accolades span well over a decade. He has amassed over 200 million streams producing for the likes of Stormzy, and currently hosts Britain’s biggest Grime radio show.
Spyro’s story began in a local youth club, where he first picked up turntables age 10. With a natural aptitude, Spyro began playing shows well before he was old enough to open a bank account, instead investing his earnings straight back into buying records.
He went on to travel the world as a Tinchy Stryder’s tour DJ before rekindling his passion for producing in 2012, in turn discovering that his grime productions had full capacity to travel on their own.
As a producer, his signature ‘Sounds of the Sir’ beat tag has since developed into one of Grime’s quintessential seals of approval and yet his sound remains markedly varied. From a Dancehall-infused Lady Chann club anthem, to Stormzy’s smash hit ‘Big For your Boots’, Sir Spyro remains one of Grime’s most trusted hit-makers. Indeed, while he continues to work with both Grime heavyweights and newcomers, he is also an esteemed remixer for artists outside of the genre, from Craig David to Plan B.
In 2005 Spyro landed a show at Rinse FM where he spent the next twelve years build the biggest underground Grime show, and hosting generations of pioneering MCs and producers. Known for his impeccable mixing and track selection inspired by the likes of Shy FX and DJ EZ, Spyro proved himself equally crucial to the scene.
Most recently he has ventured on to a primetime slot on 1Xtra, presenting a brand-new show every Friday night as the BBC’s resident Grime ambassador. From serial hit-maker, to resolute tastemaker, Sir Spyro is dedicated to showcasing Grime’s most exciting tracks, freestyles and interviews as radio’s go-to Grime selector.
