Brand-new national radio station Capital Dance – the new home of dance legend MistaJam – launched last night (Thursday 1st October) to a huge response from listeners around the world.
At 4pm yesterday, dance music fans tuned into a huge new energy and sound as Capital Dance went live for the very first time, with MistaJam playing the biggest dance anthems and club mixes.
MistaJam is back on Capital Dance today from 4pm before he takes the reins of the Capital network from 7pm, launching the all-new Capital Weekender show, going live in the mix across the UK on both Capital and Capital Dance.
Broadcasting to the world for the very first time on Capital Dance, MistaJam opened his first show and kicked off the new station with ‘Looking for Me’ by Paul Woolford & Diplo feat. Kareen Lomax, telling listeners: “YESSS! Welcome to Capital Dance! My name is MistaJam, and yes, this is mad. Welcome to your brand-new favourite new radio station dedicated to some of the biggest and best dance tunes from around the world. I am with you for the next three hours until Coco Cole takes over at 7pm, and do you know what? I absolutely love the fact that we have been able to bring this to your speakers however I heard that you’ve been looking for me, so shall we start with this?”

MistaJam reflects on his first show: “I loved it, genuinely. For a start I haven’t been able to say anything for a while, so not only did it feel like “SURPRISE!” but also like “SURPRISE! I get to do my dream”, to play music that I love. /And it seems that people are really, really loving what we’re doing already from day 1. It means there’s a new energy, there’s a new vibe, being able to do that and bring it to people in 2020 is something that I’m really passionate about. It’s great!”
