Staying on top of your game and being ahead of the curve for over a decade is no easy feat – however it is something that Ace has managed to excel at.

Ace and his then Radio Partner Vis joined 1Xtra on it’s launch in 2002, and it wasn’t long before the demand for Ace’s DJ skills started racking up with gigs around the globe. He has also supported A-list artists on tour, including Snoop Dog, 50 Cent and Lil' Kim, to name but a few.

His never-ending support of UK RnB has seen a prominent resurgence in the genre, with interest from across the board and his shows are a springboard for new talent to have the opportunity to shine. Dedicating his career to the championing of RnB music, Ace is one of the most seasoned and sought after DJ’s in the UK.

In January 2017, Ace was awarded his own daytime show on BBC Radio 1Xtra, taking over from Trevor Nelson hosting weekday mornings on the flagship UK youth digital network.

2021 also saw the addition of another show. As well as his weekday mid-morning slot, Ace curates The 1xtra RnB show, every Saturday from 11pm. The 2-hour show consists of interviews with RnB legends as well as live #RnB1Take's from up and coming artists.
