Mistajam has launched the new 24-hour dance music radio station, Capital Dance.
After announcing his departure from the BBC after 15 years, DJ and host Mistajam has joined brand-new station, Capital Dance, where he'll broadcast on the Global airwaves from Tuesday until Saturday, between 4PM and 7PM.
He'll also be presenting on Capital, on Friday and Saturday nights from 7PM, launching the new Capital Weekender show, which will be broadcast live on both Capital and Capital Dance.
Elsewhere on the station, Rio Fredrika and Coco Cole will take the reigns Monday to Thursday, with a promise of music from the likes of Disclosure, Love Regenerator, Peggy Gou, Paul Woolford, The Blessed Madonna, Disciples, Duke Dumont, Jax Jones, Aluna, and more.
Speaking about his new role, Mistajam said: “I’m really excited, honoured and privileged to start a brand new chapter in my career with the Global family, launching the UK’s first ever official 24 hour dance music radio station, Capital Dance, and taking the reins of the all new Capital Weekender show to make it the biggest dance music show in the UK.
“To be asked to launch Capital Dance and the all-new Capital Weekender really is the pinnacle of my 15 years of broadcasting to date. It’s a dream come true to join the amazingly talented and massively inspirational Coco Cole, and the exceptional Rio Fredrika."
Capital Dance is available across the UK on DAB digital radio, Global Player on smart devices, iOS/Android devices, and capitaldance.co.uk. Check out the full, 24-hour schedule below.
