5 DJ Sets that Show Jaguar is More than a Radio Presenter

The vivacious host of BBC’s Introducing on Radio 1 Dance is an inimitable talent. Oft advocating for — and representing — a new generation of dance music artists, Jaguar is quickly on her way to cementing her place as a future house heavyweight.

Hailing from the Channel Islands, the young tastemaker began her career in the industry as an intern for Radio 1, which would eventually lead the producer-journalist to be noticed as a dynamic selector with incredible taste. Since launching her show on Radio 1, she’s catapulted a plethora of rising acts to the international stage including Prospa, TSHA, Blueprint, India Jordan, Effy, and James Organ.

There’s nothing this multihyphenate DJ-party promoter can’t do, so watch closely! We’ve handpicked five of Jaguar’s most engaging sets for your enjoyment — indulge below.

1. Boiler Room x FLY Open Air 2022

Jaguar kicked off the first day of Boiler Room’s FLY Open Air session with dynamic flair. After taking the decks over from FLY’s favorite resident, Kilimanjaro​, the enthusiastic selector dropped a blazing hot tech house edit, immediately elevating the festivities several tiers. This Boiler Room session is her latest, and beautifully showcases her impeccable mixing and penchant for merging the best of pop culture and emerging artists in her live sets.

2. Keep Hush DJ Set

An underground dance music platform that showcases underground dance music around the globe, Keep Hush brought on the journalist-DJ for an exclusive warehouse set. This mix is undoubtedly one of Jaguar’s best — it’s a slow burner that spans a variety of genres, heady remixes and unreleased edits from techno, house and many of its subgenres.

3. Circoloco Radio Set

A mix for Circoloco Radio, this set is chock full of Jaguar’s musical influences, current favorites, and records she’s played while touring. The mix is essential listening for fans of the artist.

4. UTOPIA @ Night Tales Set

Jaguar is a permanent staple at UTOPIA — and for good reason, as it’s her event brand. This was originally an unheard mix from her last show prior to COVID closures. Highlighting the best in techno, house, and even disco, this set is one of Jaguar’s hottest.

5. Jaguar B2B Prospa @ IMS Dalt Vila in Ibiza Spain for Beatport Live

The IMS Dalt Vila crowd is engaged from start to finish. It’s no surprise as the two artists’ tastes merge well together, providing a seamless soundscape from start to finish.
