Ace and Vis, aka The Troublemakers of Radio,[1] are radio DJs and television presenters from south-east London. They met whilst studying at the BRIT School in London.

Known as Ace and Invisible, or Vis, after winning a gold Sony Radio Academy Award for their lunchtime show on BBC Radio 1Xtra in 2004, the two later co-presented BBC Radio 1Xtra's drivetime show from 4-7pm on weekdays, before moving to the 4-7pm weekend slot. They left BBC Radio 1Xtra in September 2012. They have also co-presented a show on the UK's Channel U TV (now Channel AKA).

Recent programmes have seen the two presenters flipping pancakes in the street, attempting to fry eggs on the pavement, and interviewing Jimmy Savile and former 1980s WWE wrestling stars. Guests on their show include musicians and artists such as Chamillionaire, Ne-Yo, Missy Elliott, Beenie Man, Wiley, GZA, Asher D, Chris Brown, T.I., Lupe Fiasco, Jamie Foxx and John Legend.

They have also traveled internationally to Japan, Germany and Ayia Napa, and were on the International Summer Tour '06 with TwiceasNice as part of their resident team of DJs.[2]

Ace and Vis work closely with BBC Blast, often appearing at tour events to give young people an insight into working in radio.
