The pioneering dance music show which gave many current artists their first big break is returning to UK radio.

Dance Anthems, presented by Dave Pearce, will feature classic tracks from the 90s and 00s as well as new music.

Pearce was part of the original Kiss 100 team and hosted Dance Anthems on BBC Radio 1 for over 10 years. During this time he championed the emerging sound of trance and laid the foundations for the huge success of EDM in the UK.

“I’m pleased to be bringing back my authentic Dance Anthems show to listeners in the UK. There really is a huge demend in clubs and festivals right now for the exciting dance music from the 90s and 00s, much of which I was lucky enough to help break first time round with my original Dance Anthems show,” commented Pearce.

“I’m also looking forward to spinning a few new tracks that are huge in the clubs for me right now but are often not getting the exposure they deserve on other UK stations.”

The new show will air on MKFM in Milton Keynes and The Beat in Brighton, Birmingham and Norwich as well as stations yet to be announced.
