Ace also known as DJ Ace, also known as one half of legendary radio duo Ace & Vis has been a DJ/radio host and presenter for over 10 years you can catch him regularly on BBC 1xtra or tearing down clubs across the world..
As an alumni from the world renowned Brit Performing Arts School, Ace and his partner in troublemaking, Vis, were signed up by then fledgling radio station BBC 1xtra after being sought out for their attention grabbing radio demo.
Dominating the airwaves the Ace & Vis BBC 1xtra show awarded the duo a Gold Sony Radio Academy Award for their lunchtime show, eventually securing them the (every Radio host coveted) daily 4 – 7 pm drive time slot. Their skills often led them to standing in for many of the stations premier presenters including Radio veteran, DJ Trevor Nelson.
Ace & Vis’ on air bond and audience appeal led to the duo fronting cult music and lifestyle program “The Illout Show” on British satellite Grime channel, Channel AKA, (formerly known as Channel U). Interviewing big music stars such as 50 Cent, T.I., Kano, Wiley, Estelle and many more The Illout Show became the must go to place for any musician who wanted that underground seal of approval. The Illout Show led by Ace & Vis also cemented their love, championing, and some could say propelling of British Grime and Hip Hop to the forefront of mainstream industry and chart acceptance.
The duos penchant for cheekiness and troublemaking eventually awarded them the task of presenting and then hosting for the UK’s premier black music award show The MOBO’s and hosting shows for MTV which took them around the world, including Japan, New York and Jamaica. Because of their ever increasingly busy schedule the Ace & Vis BBC 1xtra radio show eventually moved to the weekend drive time slot, allowing the duo to seek other ventures.
Ace with his stellar DJ skills started racking up Djing gigs around the world making pit stops at infamous Ibiza and Ayia Napa venues.

As a way of giving back to the platform which helped launch his career Ace lends his Radio skills knowledge and support to the Brit School’s radio show Brit FM. Each summer Ace returns to give advice to students and future radio broadcasters.
