Kissy Sell Out and Kutski are to front two new dance shows on Radio 1.

1Xtra's Mistajam will also join the station as part of a shake-up of the evening programming schedule.

Club DJ Kissy will host a Thursday night show from midnight until 2am, with Kutski playing Friday nights from 1am until 3am.

Dance Anthems presenter Dave Pearce and Eddie Halliwell will leave the station in October. Pearce has been with Radio 1 since 1995.

He said: "It's been an incredible 13 years at Radio 1, of all the shows I've presented Dance Anthems is the one I'm most proud of creating."

Further changes

The In New Music We Trust line-up gets three new presenters, techno DJ Heidi Van den Amstel and Jaymo & Andy George who will play "electro mash up".

Jaymo & Andy George were spotted by Radio 1 when they took part in the Essential Mix Introducing tour

They join a rotating line up on Thursdays from 2am until 4am.

Tim Westwood's Saturday show will be extended by one hour, from 9pm until 1am and include reggae dancehall DJ Goldfinger.

And Judge Jules will move to the 11pm-1am slot on Friday night.
Mistajam will continue to present his weekday show on 1Xtra

Speaking about his new show, Kissy Sell Out said: "It still seems crazy to me that a misfit musician like me who you would be more likely to catch moshing on the front row of an indie gig would get such a massive opportunity.

"But I promise to keep doing the best job I can and always going that extra yard to make each show better than the last one."

The new schedule comes into effect in October.
