A RISING star who works at Tesco in Kidderminster has just dropped Radio One's 'hottest record in the world'.

The music of producer and DJ Emily Nash caught the attention of Ministry of Sound last year and got punters at summer festivals raving.

Today (Friday, January 14), the 20-year-old has released her first single on the Ministry label - a tech house track called Garden.

Emily told The Shuttle: "I made it back in lockdown. It was one of the first tracks Ministry picked.

"Pete Tong has got in touch about it. I believe on Saturday it will be played Radio One's hottest record in the world."

On Wednesday, Emily was also crowned Radio One's future stars for 2022.

The producer has also revealed she has a booking for three weeks at the famous Printworks venue in London, a rite of passage for DJs

She added: "I'm so pleased - what's come already is unheard of. I'm still at Tesco."

Emily attended King Charles I School and studied music production at Kidderminster College.

She recently landed a record deal with Ministry of Sound, the world famous 'home of dance music,' and performed Leeds Festival and Creamfields.

Some of her influences include Gorgon City, Annie Mac, MK and the Radio One DJ Jaguar, who championed her music early on.

You can now listen to Emily's new single Garden on streaming platforms.
