Zane Lowe at O2 Academy Oxford, brought to you by Ministry of Sound presents Society.

Ministry of Sound presents Society, despite being relatively new, managed to get itself established on the tricky student scene pretty swiftly. This week the club night brings along Radio One’s big man Zane Lowe. If that’s not enough to make you go we’ve made a really helpful list to help persuade you:

  1. He’s never ever going to be a plain Jane. 
    Famed for his wide interest in a variety of music, his sets can often cross borders and visit a few different genres along the way, while curating line-ups at major events like Ibiza Rocks!
  2. He’s a drum & bass pioneer.
    So if you are a drum & bass baby, he’ll be sure to play some absolute belters.
  3. He understands the importance of students.
    Not only is he regularly touring himself around universities, but he openly promotes them as lucrative audiences for bands and artists to play to, stressing the importance of music to students. Who wouldn’t want more music playing at their University?
  4. He’s one of the nicest people in the industry.
    The kind of man your mum hears once and proceeds to text you every day that ‘that nice man is on the radio again today’ but you actually care.
  5. He’s produced and co-written with a shit load of artists.
    To name a few: Tinie Tempah, Future, Chase & Status, Example and even worked with Sam Smith on that belter of a tune ‘Restart’.
  6. He’s continuously championing new music. 
    Whatever the genre, he has helped bring many household names to the table including being the first to play that tiny little tune, ‘Crazy’ by Gnarls Barkley.
  7. He’s forever winning awards.
    Not that we’re big on show-off’s here, it’s just that he does. He’s forever winning Best Radio Show or Presenter awards it makes it hard to keep track. Most recently he won the ‘Gold Radio Broadcaster of the year’ at the Sony Radio Awards. Fancy!
  8. His ‘Masterpieces’ show was legendary.
    Dedicated to playing albums in their entirety it introduced us to songs or even albums we’d never listened properly to before, including; Fatboy Slim, Beastie Boys, Daft Punk and many more.
  9. He was in a rap group in the 90’s.
    In the early 90’s he was in Urban Disturbance, a New Zealand rap group. None of us will ever be that cool.
  10. He’s a gorgeous New Zealander.We don’t want you to stand and stare at the decks all night, but boy if you were going to do it anywhere, why not do it at a beautiful and talented Kiwi.
  11. He saved Ryan Jarman’s (The Cribs) life.
    At the 2006 NME Awards he came across Ryan collapsed from injuries sustained on the night and got him the urgent medical attention he needed, what a nice guy.
  12. He’s Zane Lowe.
    Because at the end of the day; he is one of the UK’s leading broadcasters, forever presenting on MTV, millions tune into his evening show every week and what’s that saying everyone was using last year… YOLO?
  13. Check out his interview with the massive Rebel Sound from the Red Bull Culture Clash.
