    Deja Vu Weekend...

    For one weekend only W!ZARD Radio Station will be broadcasting a full weekend nicknamed 'Deja Vu Weekend'.

    The idea of the weekend is to promote some of the greatest radio shows from the past year that the W!ZARD Radio Station audience may have missed out on. Every single show broadcasted over the weekend will be an old episode, picked by the radio station's Executive Producers that they feel is one of the best shows of that year.

    The schedule will be running as usual - but each show will be a repeat.

    The radio station will return to normal broadcasting next weekend (Friday 5th December) with an exciting run-up to the holidays!

    Magtfuld Replaces DJ Philipp Korbler

    Following the exit of DJ Philipp Korbler on Saturday 22nd November 2014, it has been announced that Magtfuld will replace Philipp as the "Face of EDM" on W!ZARD Radio Station from Friday 5th December 2014.

    Magtfuld is a rising star in the electronic world. At the age of 16, this Danish producer is already creating a stir in the EDM scene after gaining huge support from world legend Markus Schulz who made a mash-up of Magtfuld's release "Pumpin" and played it in Ibiza as part of his set list. His latest remix hit Number 19 on the Beatport charts already picking up support from Gregor Salto.

    Not just will he be bringing Copenhagen to W!ZARD Radio Station as the new Face of EDM, but he's also bringing one hell of a party.

    Philipp's exit from the Station comes increased workload from his other commitments, putting the quality of his radio shows at high risk. His leaving agreement was founded at the beginning of November. He joined W!ZARD Radio Station in September 2012, being one of the first international presenters that the Station held. Management spotted him when he used to send in messages and contribute to many of the Station's shows - prompting discussion for him to join as a presenter. Since then, he has held the Friday and Saturday 12pm to 1pm (UK) time slot, specializing in electronic music.

    Magtfuld will be taking all of Philipp's on-air responsibilities. On Friday's (12.00pm to 1.00pm) he will host a show called "Magtfuld Presents:" whereby a series of DJ's will hold residencies on-air, lasting months. On Saturday's (12.00pm to 1.00pm) he will host his own show called, "Magtfuld" live on W!ZARD Radio Station. As well as that, he will host The W!ZARD Sessions (Saturday, 8.00pm to 9.00pm), introducing the different acts each week.

    Don't miss Magtfuld's first radio show, 12.00pm to 1.00pm (UK) exclusively on W!ZARD Radio Station.

    Saturday Night's EDM Guests

    Saturday Night's on W!ZARD Radio Station are infamous for showcasing some of the best in electronic music - from both upcoming and big name artists. The late night electro kicks off at 8.00pm (UK) every Saturday with The W!ZARD Sessions, followed by Andi Durrant's Electrik Playground from 9.00pm (UK) to 11.00pm (UK) ending with Al Walser from 11.00pm (UK) to Midnight (UK) to end off the weekend.

    This weekend, as with every weekend, W!ZARD Radio Station has two hugely exciting names coming on-air for exclusive guest mixes...

    The W!ZARD Sessions
    Genetix take over The W!ZARD Sessions for 1 hour with a custom-made guest mix. Genetix, Matt Sharp and Rich Dawson, started out producing D&B in late 2006 under various alias's and built up a large catalogue of vinyl and digital releases. Their debut production together, "Squid Attack", caught the attention of the scene in a big way with support from the likes of Nero, Sub Focus, Flux Pavillion and Funtcase amongst many others.

    Since then the duo have continued to raise the bar with many vinyl and digital releases across all aspects of dubstep. A collab with Funtcase and some of their solo tracks saw releases on Circus Records amonst others. In 2013 Genetix launched their own label "Big Tuna". The first release entitled "$$$ Ep" saw support from major radio stations and reached No.7 in the Beatport chart. It's safe say Genetix are smashing it and will continue to do so!

    Andi Durrant's Electrik Playground
    A MASSIVE show this week with 2 guest sessions.. A List superstar Nicky Romero and hot new talent Nora En Pure both taking over for a 30min hot mix.

    Make sure you don't miss EDM Saturday nights from 8.00pm (UK) to Midnight (UK) exclusively on W!ZARD Radio Station. You won't get closer to the best talent than right now.

    W!ZARD Studios Launches

    W!ZARD RADIO MEDIA ANNOUNCES LAUNCH OF W!ZARD STUDIOS

    ONLINE BLOGGER, JONATHAN ROSS’ DAUGHTER HONEY ROSS DUE TO LAUNCH ONLINE PODCAST SERIES BEFORE LAUNCH OF PODCAST FROM POPULAR ONLINE MUSIC BLOG ‘THE LAST MIXED TAPE’ IN 2015.

    03 OCT – Today, W!ZARD Radio Media’s Managing Director, James Gilmore, officially announced the launch of the newest subsidiary of the W!ZARD Radio Media enterprise, W!ZARD Studios. The service is set to replace the previously dormant W!ZARD Events imminently.

    W!ZARD Studios is set to be the production arm of W!ZARD Radio Media, producing and managing a variety of products outside of the brands current realm.

    Already booked for production is a bi-weekly online podcast series from Honey Ross (daughter of Jonathan Ross, blogger under the name of ‘Honey Kinny’) set to launch on Christmas Day online and on iTunes. Following that, The Last Mixed Tape Podcast (based on the popular online music blog) will launch on 17th January 2015 for another bi-weekly series.

    Managing Director James Gilmore comments, “W!ZARD Studios has been in mind since I initially launched the brand in 2010 at the age of 12. The idea of being able to produce and work with talent from a variety of projects unrelated to the radio station or record label themselves has always been extremely exciting and I am extremely proud to welcome the new service amongst our already strong line-up of products and services”.

    He continued, “Honey Ross is an extreme talent in her own right and I am beyond excited to be able to finally work with her on such a project. Planning the podcast series with her over the past few weeks has been a rollercoaster ride and I cannot wait for it to continue. The Last Mixed Tape is a leading independent music blog that does incredible work for unsigned talent in the UK and it is an honour to be able to work with them on this.”

    Plans for the future include expanding into games, short film and music production.

    In Concert with... Nirvana

    Every week, on his show, Joey Abels throws his audience into the live experience by putting them in the center of a true rock concert! But, there are no mosh pits, stampedes or pyrotechnics and everyone can be apart of the experience from the comfort of their own home!

    The experience is in the form of a rebroadcast of a live concert from some of the biggest rock bands in the world - including the likes of Green Day, The White Stripes, Whitesnake, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Squeeze, Oasis, Nazareth, Elvis Presley, Bruce Springsteen, Arcade Fire, Arctic Monkeys and more!

    The W!ZARD Radio Station backlog of concert recordings is extensive, and each week it is opened during Joey's show. BUT... the concert each week is a surprise. During the show, Joey will give clues as to who the concert is from before he plays it.

    This weeks concert was from Nirvana!

    You can hear the concert NOW by listening to 'Joey Abels' on W!ZARD Repeats. The concert is roughly 80minutes through the show.
