The UK’s official dance stationis about to get even bigger with DJs and producers Jess Bays and KG joining the Capital Dance family. Jess Bays joins as the host of a brand new show, Sundays 4pm – 7pm, kicking off this Sunday 11th July, and KG, aka Karen Nyame, will front a brand new afternoon show, Tuesdays – Saturdays from 12pm – 4pm, starting today.
Already hugely popular with Capital Dance listeners following her epic set at Capital Dance’s ‘MistaJam and Friends LIVE’ rooftop gig and her Bank Holiday takeover in May, Jess Bays is also a regular on the Capital Dance playlist with her massive track ‘Back and Forth’ (feat Lily McKenzie). She’s played to clubbers and festival-goers the world over and will bring massive club vibes to round off the weekend on the UK’s official dance station.
Artist, DJ, producer and broadcaster KG has worked with dance institutions from Boiler Room to Red Bull Music, and over the past few months she’s had stints on Capital Weekender and Capital Dance. Listeners can now hear her five days a week on the UK’s official dance station, where she’ll be bringing huge energy to listeners before MistaJam takes the reins.
Capital Dance launched last October with dance legend MistaJam at the helm. It’s home to the biggest dance anthems and freshest club mixes anywhere on the dial, playing massive tracks from the likes of MK, Honey Dijon, Disclosure, The Blessed Madonna, Billen Ted, Peggy Gou, Jodie Harsh, Disciples, Jessie Ware, Jess Bays, Calvin Harris, Camden Cox and Paul Woolford.
Jess Bays said: “I am so excited to be joining Capital Dance, I don’t even think the word gassed comes close to describing how I feel. Capital is something I’ve listened to since I was a kid, so to now be joining the family is just nuts. Being out of clubs for so long has given me a new lease of life to bring music to the dance community and I’m looking forward to bringing ‘Sunday Funday’ to Capital Dance – Sundays are usually when some people want to wind down, but not on this station! We’re going to be bringing the energy, getting ready for the week!”
KG said: “I’m just so ecstatic to be joining a growing station and to be part of the Capital brand. It’s a big dream of mine to be on national radio, so for it to finally happen after putting in so much work, it’s just a dream come true. You can expect high energy, vibes, loads of big tracks, fun and excitement. I can’t wait to be a part of our growing Capital Dance community and be on air five days a week!”
