DJ and producer legends to join the KISS line up this summer

Mark Knight and HANNAH WANTS are joining the KISS Nights family on Friday 25th and Saturday 26th June. 

Launched in November 2020, KISS Nights is an army of big-room DJ talent and emerging names from the worlds of Dance, Hip Hop, Afrobeats, Drum and Bass and more. Majestic, Joel Corry, Gorgon City, Juls, Hybrid Minds, Ellie Prohan and loads more already represent for KISS Nights – so these new additions take the team to new heights and potential.

As summer has officially landed, Toolroom Records’ boss Mark Knight and superstar DJ and Producer HANNAH WANTS are here to bring even more ambition and hot music to the already notorious Friday and Saturday nights on KISS.

HANNAH WANTS:

"I'm hella excited to be getting back involved with radio and joining the Kiss FM family. I've been watching and admiring their movements for a while now and so to be a part and be able to put a Hannah Wants stamp onto your weekend is an honour. Expect two hours of the very best house, tech and minimal music from around the world every Saturday night 11pm-1am."

Mark Knight:

“Being asked to host my own show on Kiss is a huge deal for me, and feels like my career has come full circle. The station has always been hugely inspirational to me growing up, it was the point of reference in terms of youth culture and my access point for quality underground House music. I cut my teeth as a professional DJ, being their resident at Garage City & Independence. I have always loved the station, and I owe a lot of my success to them - so to now have my own show is something I’m incredibly proud of. I can’t wait to get stuck in and make the Friday night slot my own.”

Fridays on KISS Nights:

1900 Majestic

2100 Sam Divine

2300 Mark Knight
