Dance Music Stations

Time to cut up a rug with the Dance stations!!!

BBC Radio 1 Dance and Global’s Capital Dance feature a cross section of the latest releases and also DJ sets from some high profile Disc Jockeys in the world of dance, while Global’s other offering, Heart Dance and Wireless’s Virgin Groove feature much smaller cross section of sometimes quite cheesy older dance, and in Virgin’s case some songs which most music fans would not classify as dance really at all!

Union Jack Dance is for UK produced dance only… Earlier in 2021 we described it as featuring a fair proportion of trip hop and big-beat EDM, which, it is has to be said, was pioneered in this country, but might not be considered such a broad reaching “easy listen” as some other more commercial dance tunes, if you know what I mean, however, it seems to have had a Summer 2021 makeover, and now plays a more “populist” selection of songs with a good beat, to include a lot more blatant pop and pop dance offerings than before… so a lot more akin to Virgin Groove….

(Analysis of Virgin Groove does NOT include the Chris Evans Breakfast Show music which is just his main “Virgin Radio” show simulcast on Groove, and not “Groove” Songs which play the rest of the day)
