Capital Dance, a brand-new national dance station from Global, has launched today (Thursday 1 October 2020) across the UK on DAB+, smart speakers, via Global Player, and at capitaldance.co.uk.
Playing dance anthems and club mixes, Capital Dance propels the Capital brand into the dance space, and is fronted by MistaJam, the DJ, producer and tastemaker, who will host Drive on Tuesday to Saturdays from 4pm – 7pm on Capital Dance, and the Capital Weekender, Friday and Saturday from 7pm, on both Capital and Capital Dance.
Capital’s Coco Cole also joins Capital Dance as the host of a new evening show, Monday – Thursday from 7pm, and Friday & Saturday nights on the new Capital Weekender show with Ministry of Sound from 10pm.
James Rea, Director of Broadcasting at Global, said:
“Capital Dance is a brilliant addition to the Capital brand, opening it up to a whole new set of music and dance genres, fronted by one of the biggest personalities and most esteemed figures in dance music. We’re delighted to welcome MistaJam to the Global family both on Capital Dance and on the Capital network for the all new Capital Weekender show on Friday & Saturday nights at 7pm.”
MistaJam, Presenter on Capital and Capital Dance, said:
“No other collection of genres has the power that dance music has to universally unite, energise and uplift people. I’m truly grateful to share that vision with the team at Capital and Global and to be able to bring these vibes to the nation in my new home. I can’t wait to get started!”
