DJ Ace joins KISS to host brand new weekend R&B show
KISS has signed legendary R&B broadcaster Ace to host a brand-new Sunday evening show.
A Sony Gold Award winner, MOBO host, podcaster and presenter, Ace recently left BBC Radio 1 Xtra after being with the station for 21 years.
He has long been a champion of UK R&B, offering a springboard for new talent and overseeing a prominent resurgence in the genre. His passion for the music has seen him become one of the most seasoned and sought after DJs in the UK.
Ace said about joining the KISS team: “I am so excited to fly the flag for R&B on a station with the legacy that KISS has. I look forward to introducing you to your next favourite R&B artist while reminding you why you fell in love with the genre.
“I take a lot of pride in supporting and championing homegrown artists within this scene and will continue to shine the biggest spotlight on UK R&B while putting you on to the newest global emerging acts and also giving a touch of nostalgia while giving flowers to some R&B legends. The perfect way to end your weekend. Sunday nights vibing out to the best in R&B on Kiss.”
Ace’s new show kicks off this Sunday 18 February at 9pm with a deep dive into the new Usher album and a look back to the Grammys and the MOBOs.
