BBC Radio 1 today announced the new line up for BBC Radio 1’s Residency, with Deadmau5, Jessy Lanza, Eats Everything, Helena Hauff and Metrik joining the Residency team.
The new roster will start as soon as January hits, the radio will continue with the traditional 2 slots Thursday night from 10pm-Midnight and Midnight-1am, featuring same of the hottest and best producers/DJs on the planet right now.
Kölsch and Will Atkinson will continue on as 2016 comes to a close, and so will Logan Sama who keeps her extended slot on the 3rd Thursday of the month. The new roster marks the end of Steve Angello, Oliver Heldens, Heidi, George FitzGerald and Louisahhh’s regular slot on BBC Radio 1’s Residency.
The new artists who just joined the roster and Rhys Hughes (Head of Programmes, BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra) had a few words to say to the BBC radio 1 listener.
“I am very excited to bring mau5trap and friends to BBC as part of the Radio 1 Residency. You can expect a selection of songs I’m playing out, songs from artists I like, songs from my label, songs not from my label… maybe even songs from me. See you on 5 January!”
“I’m thrilled to be a part of the Radio 1 residency line up for 2017. I can’t wait to share the music I’m listening to and excited about.”
“I’m pretty speechless that I have been asked to host my own show on Radio 1. It’s fairly surreal and a bit of a shock. My first actual introduction to dance music was the Pet Shop Boys show on Radio 1 in the very early nineties and I have been listening to Pete Tong since I was 13 – so now to say that I might see him in the Radio 1 Canteen and perhaps share a cup of tea with him after we have clocked in is mindblowing. I promise to try and bring good music, some questionable humour and a silly accent to the airwaves.”
“I’m delighted to welcome Deadmau5, Helena Hauff, Jessy Lanza, Eats Everything and Metrik to the Radio 1 dance family – yet again illustrating we are the high water mark of global DJ talent.
“I would like to thank Steve Angello, Oliver Heldens, George FitzGerald and Louisahhh for their contribution over the last year. I would also like to personally thank Heidi for her fantastic dedication to Radio 1 over the last eight years.”
