Groundbreaking dance music show returns to UK radio

DAVEPEARCE6722_JamesHole_SideView

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.

Dave Pearce celebrates the golden era of trance

DP_TRANCE_ANTHEMS_final

The creator of one of the UK’s best known and well loved dance music radio shows has compiled a new album celebrating the golden era of trance.

Dave Pearce was the host of BBC Radio 1’s Dance Anthems during a period when it received acclaim from dance fans around the country and pioneered the emerging sound of trance.

Without his support and the huge number of dance music fans reached by the show many of today’s household names might never have found an audience.

The new three CD mix compilation features tracks well known to passionate dance fans including Paul van Dyk – For An Angel, Faithless – We Come One, Robert Miles – Children, Binary Finary – 1999 and Chicane – Saltwater.

In addition, there are lesser known tracks which have featured in Pearce’s specialist trance sets at events including Trance Sanctuary at The Egg in Kings Cross and The Gallery at Ministry of Sound in south London. These include Orkidea – Beautiful, ATN – Miss A Day and The Mystery – Fever.

“It’s been a labour of love putting this mix collection together,” says Pearce.

“It has brought back so many wonderful memories like watching 50,000 clubbers go completely nuts to Mauro Picotto – Lizard when I dropped it at the infamous Millennium Dome Ministry of Sound rave.”

“I will never forget the sense of anticipation when I first played OceanLab – Satellite at the Escape in Swansea after I signed it to my NuLife label.”

“Other fond memories include appearing in the video for Push – The Legacy at my night at Eden in Ibiza, giving Tiesto his first live BBC Radio 1 dj set and playing tunes like the beautiful Yahel – Devotion at Ministry of Sound.”

“This really was an incredible era to be a dj and clubber. The sense of euphoria and togetherness in the big trance nights was overwhelming. It is sad to see the state of the British club scene today. Give me somebody going nuts with a glowstick on a podium over somebody shuffling in a corner on their mobile phone any day!”

Dave Pearce Trance Anthems will be released on Friday 30 March 2018 as a CD, digital download and via streaming services such as Apple Music and Spotify.
