Flavour were sad to hear that award nominated DJ, Masterstepz, today announced his resignation from the radio station Choice FM, where has been a long standing and respected resident DJ for over six years.

Whilst being at Choice FM, Masterstepz has had his own weekday show from 7pm-9pm, meeting and interviewing music artists and sportsmen such as Jay-Z, Mary J Blige, Tinchy Styder, Rihanna, Rio Ferdinand, Bashy, David Haye, NeYo, Alicia Keys and Mariah Carey, who personally presented him with a mounted triple platinum disc for her album, The Emancipation Of Mimi, to name a few. In May 2009, as a result of the largest increase of listeners throughout all shows on Choice FM, Masterstepz’s show was extended by one hour till 10pm.

Throughout his six years at Choice FM, Masterstepz was the ambassador of youth music and an active member of Choice FM’s ‘Peace On The Streets’ campaign, which works in association with Operation Trident, to deliver anti-gun/weapon crime messages. This was done via seminars, events and workshops at schools and youth centres all over London and the South East. In 2004, Masterstepz and ‘Peace On The Streets’ were the winners of the Sony Radio Academy Awards.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed working on the Peace On The Streets campaign and winning the Sony award for that show, as well as all the live broadcast shows and events such as Junior Jam and all the concerts Choice FM sponsored and that I hosted. I will miss Choice FM and wish all the presenters and staff all the best, but it’s time for me to move forward in my career and take up some exciting opportunities I have been offered” said the DJ/producer.

Masterstepz is currently signed to major US management/DJ agency, Violator, as their first and only UK DJ on their roster, alongside heavyweight international artists such as Diddy, 50 Cent, and Busta Rhymes, and the cream of US DJ talent.

Masterstepz’s last show on Choice FM will be this Friday, March 5th, from 7pm-10pm and the team at Flavour would like to wish him luck.

  1. I wish Masterstepz a belated very best wishes for the future. (I hadn't heard he'd left Choice FM as I've locked out of my former favourite station some time ago now). Like himself, I believe the station are moving in a highly different musical direction now, far removed from their original broadcast submission remit. Kiss FM did this about a decade ago, but to lose its main rival in this fashion is really sad in my opinion. Only younger listeners will probably remain with the station now I feel.

    Thankfully, new stations like Colourful Radio are picking up the former Choice and Kiss mantles. Thank God for DAB is all I can say! – a passage to real music away from all that "bubblegum" stuff paraded by the former mentioned R'nB/Hip Hop stations.
