New specialist squad assembled on KISS02 November 2020 - Press release
After a year of major reinvigoration at the station, evenings at KISS are about to explode with new and existing specialist talent to form all-new KISS Nights.
From 9pm Sunday – Thursday, and 7pm Fridays and Saturdays KISS are unleashing some of the world’s most exciting curators, DJs and presenters to reflect the current musical landscape of dance music, black music and everything in between.
Launching Monday 9th November KISS Nights will reflect Drum and bass, Afrobeats, Grime, Hip Hop, all forms of House, Garage and more with talent from all corners of the UK and beyond.
October this year saw KISS mark its 35th year since launching as a pirate station, and KISS Nights will bring 11 entirely new programmes and a reassembly of existing KISS talent to complete the transformation.
Majestic leads the charge with new Friday and Saturday night shows 1900-2100. A Trak, Deadmau5, Ellie Prohan, Gorgon City, Hybrid Minds, Juls, DJ Q, Sam Divine, Shosh (24 Hour Garage Girls), Mark Knight’s Tool Room Residency and Tash LC are brand new to the line-up.
KISS Content Director Rebecca Frank said “This is another real moment in 2020 for us at KISS. Reinvigorating our specialist line up is all about authentically reaching diverse audiences UK – something we are passionate about every day. This army of talent will naturally work together to create more opportunities for new artists to be played, for content to be indulged and to make sure we are giving space to emerging sounds.
“The energy around these presenters from international super stars and major label artists to the most exciting emerging talent feels like a movement; KISS was built on exciting music and risk taking – we want to bring that spirit back with KISS Nights.”
