Hakkasan is heading into 2014 with momentum — following the announcement of their 2014 roster of resident DJs, the MGM Grand nightclub has unveiled its foray into the streaming world with a new radio broadcast, appropriately titled Hakkasan Nightclub Radio.

The hourlong weekly show, hosted by Hakkasan resident DJ Mark Eteson, helps give club fans a fix between weekends with a mix of the latest music, artist interviews and news coming out of Hakkasan and the dance music scene. Episodes also will include previews of Hakkasan’s weekly lineup and guest mixes from artists in advance of their performances at the club.

This Tuesday’s show will feature a half-hour guest mix from new residents Above & Beyond, who play Hakkasan on Friday, Feb. 14.

The broadcast is the first of its kind for a Las Vegas nightclub, though it follows in the footsteps of Marquee at the Cosmopolitan, which expanded into music last year with the release of an eponymous compilation series.

New episodes of Hakkasan Nightclub Radio are released Tuesdays on iTunes and Soundcloud. The show hit the Top 20 on the iTunes podcast chart shortly after launching last month and has become the highest-rated nightclub radio show on iTunes.

Meantime, Nightclub & Bar recently named Hakkasan its Nightclub of the Year for its 2014 awards, defeating Light at Mandalay Bay and XS at Encore.
