Last week music fans across London were stunned to learn that Choice FM would be rebranded as Capital Xtra as of Monday 7th October. Last Thursday it was made public that DJs such as Reggae legend Daddy Ernie, loyal Soca/Calypso DJ Martin 'Soca Prince' Jay, Natty B, Gospel DJ Dave P and many more had been dismissed. Younger DJs such as comedian Kojo & Jade are continuing their daily breakfast show, whilst DJ Manny Norte broadcasts daily 9am - 12pm rather than his weekend night time show. Jigs had been swapped from afternoons to an early 6am weekend show which clearly wasn't what he had hoped for. Long gone are the diverse sounds of anthems loved across R&B clubs London as now Capital Xtra is an 'Urban Dance Station' competing against Kiss an 1Xtra with electronic music domintating the airwaves. In a single tweet yesterday Jigs announced: “After 24 years at Choice FM I today decided that the time was right for me to move on, thanks to everyone that ever listened”. Although Capital Xtra still have Jigs listed on their website as: "Jigs is up early every weekend on Capital XTRA to bring you the biggest urban dance tunes between 6am and 10am." They are yet to update the site with his departure. New DJs to be featured on Capital Xtra this week are: UK singer Craig David presenting his 1hr TS5 show syndicated from Miami, whilst Saturday night hip-hop comes courtesy of former Radio 1 DJ Tim Westwood replacing Choices long serving hiphop DJ 279. Other big signings are the chart topping Avicii, plus Tinie Tempah's tour DJ Charlsey to give the station an all new and more commercialised look. Senior Labour politician Chuka Umunna,( MP for Streatham) expressed his concern about the future direction of the rebranded station stating; “The senior team at Global Radio kindly explained the rationale for the change to me and I understand their need as a company to run a commercially viable entity. But I beg of them not to allow Capital XTRA (formerly Choice) to lose its distinct identity and go the way Kiss did back in the late 1990s. It is imperative that Capital XTRA retains the distinct sound of Choice FM - that is the test for me." He continued: “It is crucial that Capital XTRA continues to give London's different and diverse communities a "choice" in the music they listen to on London's airwaves.” However we doubt Global Radio or Capital Xtra will be focued on his above statement, but instead building a wider market of listeners, advertiser etc so the new dance brand can go onto host further events more like their Jingle Bell Ball. Not to worry though, London Groove shall continue to entertain the masses with quality R&B classics and a slice of contemporary anthems every weekend across nightclubs in London.

The O2 Arena was packed last night as 16,500 music fans raised money for Stephen Lawrence’s charity and were entertained by night clubs in London favorites such as: Jessie J, Rita Ora, Beverley Knight, Ellie Goulding, Rudimental, Jamie Cullum, choir LCGC, Labryinth, Plan B, and Rizzle Kicks. Doreen Lawrence received a standing ovation as show director Danny Boyle brought the amazing mother on stage to thank the supporters of her son’s legacy and the Unity concert. Jazz musician Jamie Cullum spoke to the crowd stating: ‘Tonight is about raising money and raising awareness, but it’s also a celebration of what Doreen has achieved. It was the first news story that really resonated with me and continues to resonate. Doreen’s struggle shows what an incredibly powerful lady she is and what an amazing thing for British politics she is. Things are better in this country because of what Doreen highlighted. I notice in the younger generation that there is a wind-change of everything feeling a little more equal, but of course racism is always there and it always needs to be talked about.’ Emeli Sande performed some of her popular RnB club anthems, speaking about her struggles with racism she explained: ‘It’s a great honor to be asked to perform, and to be part of something that I’ve really been inspired by. ‘The Lawrence family have been part of my life from a distance from when I was very young. I’ve suffered from racism, my parents suffered from racism being a black man and a white woman in the 1980s, and it’s always been part of our lives in some way. This concert really is about freedom, freedom of expression, freedom to feel safe in your society. I want the message of freedom to be the lasting note. Events like this show we are talking about racism out in the open which I don’t think we could have done 20 years ago.’ Jessie J dazzled the crowd with her many of her London party anthems such as ‘Domino’, ‘Wild’ etc, she told the press: ‘Anything that I can do to support someone like Doreen Lawrence, who deserves support from young people that completely, one hundred percent agree with her, should step forward. If I can use my talent to do that, then 100 percent I will.’
