Rory has spent a short lifetime obsessing over music. Having gained experience across BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra and 6 Music, Global Radio, Music Week and Warp Records, his show Beats and Bobs aims to please those who like Flying Lotus, Floating Points and Fatima as much as Feist, Field Music, Freddie Gibbs and Frank Ocean.
