BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra DJ Tiffany Calver signs to Insanity Group

DJ & Broadcaster Tiffany Calver has signed to Insanity Group for global management representation.

The BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra DJ – and former Music Week cover star – will be managed by Issy Lloyd, Jon Bailey and Marc Sheinman.

Calver said: “I am so delighted to be joining a team of incredible people that have been nothing less than genuine, supportive and caring towards me prior to a working relationship even beginning. This is the perfect partnership for me as it almost feels like family. I can’t wait to see what the future holds.”

Andy Varley, founder & CEO, Insanity Group, said: “We are excited to welcome Tiffany Calver to the Insanity family. As a talent, Tiffany is incredibly hard working and is deep rooted in the culture she represents. We will be working with her to build her already incredibly successful BBC Radio 1 & 1Xtra Rap Show whilst also developing her DJ career, live events and some exciting new projects that cover the many issues close to her heart." 

Calver was the first woman to host a national radio hip-hop show on Kiss FM. This year the tastemaker took on BBC Radio 1’s weekly hip-hop show, a role previously held by Tim Westwood, DJ Semtex and Charlie Sloth.

As a DJ, she’s opened up for UK and US artists including Fredo, Jay-Z, Beyonce and Drake across his European tour. Calver acted as a curator of UK talent at the Canadian superstar's run of shows pushing through the likes of Headie One, Digdat and J Hus.

Insanity clients include Jo Whiley, Maya Jama, Roman Kemp, Alice Levine, David Rodigan, Wilkinson and Shy FX. 

The company has a long-term frontline record label joint venture with Sony Music, Insanity Records, which is home to Craig David, Tom Grennan, Joy Crookes, Lennon Stella and AJ Mitchell.
