DJ Ace

Ace, a renowned figure in the UK's R&B scene, has earned a Sony Gold Award for his work on Radio 1Xtra and is widely respected as a MOBO host, podcaster, and presenter. His dedication to nurturing emerging talent has significantly contributed to the revitalisation of UK R&B.

As one of the UK's most experienced and in-demand DJs, Ace's enthusiasm for R&B has been a driving force behind the genre's resurgence.

In February 2023, he expanded his influence by establishing Everything RNB (ERNB), an affiliate of The RecordBox, which he founded in 2016.

ERNB serves as a dynamic platform and community aimed at promoting UK R&B music and artists, with a mission to elevate the presence of R&B on a global scale.

Marking a new chapter in his illustrious career, Ace recently concluded his 21-year tenure at BBC Radio 1Xtra. He has now joined Kiss FM, where he hosts a new R&B show every Sunday at 9pm to the station's 2.3 million listeners. This two-hour segment promises to be the prime spot for listeners to enjoy the latest R&B tracks, beloved KISSTORY hits, and to engage with the genre's most exciting guests.
