Sun:Sets with Chicane
On-Air: Saturday 2am
In the past he has been dubbed “the godfather of the Ibiza anthem” but Chicane mastermind Nick Bracegirdle has come a long way since the sun drenched Balearic shores first throbbed to the sound of what is now recognised by many as the archetypal chill out classic “Offshore.” Since establishing himself in 1997 Nick Bracegirdle has fashioned a flawless and hit-filled album discography. The roll-call of names he has worked with is diverse and impressive: Bryan Adams, Sir Tom Jones, Natasha Bedingfield, Adam Young, Cher, Kate Walsh.
Kryteria with Kryder
On-Air: Sunday 12am
With heavy support from a host of the world’s biggest DJs, Kryder is rapidly becoming one of the biggest names in British electronic music. Shrouded in mystery, all that’s known about this hard-working, visor-wearing star is that he was previously a promoter in Manchester before he decided to delve full time into the world of production. The decision paid huge dividends from his very first release — the enormous “K2,” one of the biggest anthems of the last few years, which Tiësto picked up for his Musical Freedom label back in 2011.
