Masked dance music DJ Jaguar Skills is to do a new weekly show for Global Radio’s Capital XTRA, which will be repeated across the Capital FM network.
Billed the Jaguar SKills Shooooow’, it will air on Capital XTRA on Friday nights from this week at 8pm. It’ll air again on a Saturday night at 10pm on Capital FM.
Since Choice FM relaunched as Capital XTRA on FM in London and across the UK on DAB, the station has introduced new shows from DJs including Craig David and Avicii.
Jaguar Skills, who’s sold out UK and US tours and played festivals including Glastonbury, Bestival and V, is known as the ‘King of the Mashups’, but his real identity is a closely-guarded secret. Earlier this year he told the Leicester Mercury: “No-one at Radio 1 has ever seen my face. That’s pretty mental, isn’t it?”
Speaking about his move to Capital XTRA and Capital FM, Jag said: “My ninja mask almost fell off with the excitement when I heard I was launching my ALL-NEW JAGUAR SKILLS SHOOOOOW on Capital. Words cannot describe how I’m feeling right now, except one…HoooOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!”
Robert D’Ovidio, Capital FM’s managing editor said: “Jaguar Skills’ unique blend of House, Trap and Drum & Bass, is a fantastic addition to the Capital XTRA and Capital FM weekend line up. Signing top talent like Jag ensures that we are always bringing our listeners the best new music across Capital. We’re looking forward to his first set.”
