Expect a huge four-hour takeover of The Bullpen Featuring Marcus Nasty. Undoubtedly at the forefront of one of the most exciting genres to emerge from London’s underground in recent years, Marcus is respected as one of the pioneers of the UK funky house scene as well as a long-time supporter of Grime which has been led by his highly-respected residency on London’s award winning Rinse FM, which he has now been a part of for over 10 years.
