BBC Radio 1Xtra host DJ Ace has become the UK’s first ever DJ/curator to take over a Spotify playlist.
The presenter (pictured) has secured a four-week takeover of the Room 2: Urban Classics playlist, beginning his reign on Monday (August 14).
"I'm so happy to be the first DJ in the UK to take over a playlist on Spotify. This is the perfect playlist for me - I get to combine what I do on the radio and in the clubs," he said. "Expect to hear all your favourite party classics from back in the day.”
With over 120,000 followers, the Room2: Urban Classics playlist is a selection of DJ Ace’s favourite old school urban tunes, check it out here. DJ Ace can also be heard weekdays from 10am on BBC Radio 1Xtra.
BBC Radio 1Xtra is marking its 15th anniversary today (August 16). Trevor Nelson has spoken to Music Week to share his thoughts on how the station changed the music business.
