KISS Future Hype artists revealed as Eliza Rose, Flo and venbee

All three artists are being championed by KISS, and will receive bespoke promotion across its platforms

KISS has today launched its inaugural list of the artists it is most championing for 2023. KISS Hype Chart host Tinea Taylor joined Jordan and Perri on the KISS Breakfast Show this morning (Monday 9th January) to announce that Eliza Rose, Flo and venbee have all been selected for KISS Future Hype – the artists that the station is most hotly tipping for success this year.

DJ Eliza Rose gained prominence in 2022 for her empowering dance track B.O.T.A (Baddest Of Them All), while fellow viral hitmaker venbee saw her drum ‘n’ bass tinged ‘messy in heaven’ peak at No.3 in the UK charts. Completing the all-female KISS Future Hype line-up is British girl group Flo, who have been winning accolades for their contemporary take on 00s R&B.

All three artists gain access to playlist support from KISS and its network of stations for their current and upcoming singles throughout this year, as well as bespoke promotion on-air and on KISS digital channels, including filmed interviews and artist takeovers.

Pete Black, Director of Music at Bauer Media Audio UK said “Supporting new music and new artists is core to what we do at KISS. Future Hype is a network wide commitment to 3 artists that we are really excited about this year. We’ll partner with these artists throughout the year to showcase their talents and music to our audience through interviews and content, playlist support and live events”.

On hearing they had each been selected as KISS Future Hype, Eliza Rose, Flo and venbee all shared their appreciation for the station, with Eliza Rose saying, “I love KISS FM because it was a station which I grew up listening to. My dad would always play it in the car! Actually, it was probably one of the first places I listened to UK garage music properly. It’s been a part of my life for a long time!”

Flo said “We are so hyped to be one of KISS’s Future Hype acts! Thank you KISS for your continued support. We LOVE hearing our songs played on KISS.”, while venbee added “I love KISS, they play absolute bops and it’s one of my fav stations! I’m so happy to be part of KISS Future Hype for 2023!!”

Tinea Taylor will be joined by each of the artists on her KISS Hype Chart Show which airs Monday-Thursday from 7pm-9pm, for an exclusive takeover starting with venbee on Monday 9th January. Flo will feature on Monday 16th January and Eliza Rose on Monday 23rd January.
