Radio 1's Residency

BBC Radio 1’s Residency – the station’s way of giving interesting players in dance music a late-night ‘in’ to its programming – will next year consist of b2b slots by the likes of Kaytranada and Flying Lotus, George Fitzgerald and Jon Hopkins, and Heidi & Solomun.

The first show, featuring mixes by existing R1 resident Skream and rising house DJ Hannah Wants, will air at midnight on 8 Jan, with latter shows going live weekly from then on.

Now it’s time for some talking, first from Canadian XL-signing Kaytranada, who says: “During my high school days, I used to listen to my favourite DJs mixes on BBC and now, here I am. Damn. I’m going to play the best music for y’all”.

A similarly pleased Flying Lotus, meanwhile, says: “I still can’t believe this is about to happen. It’ll be a pleasure to invade the UK airwaves for the months ahead”.

Radio 1’s Head Of Programmes Rhys Hughes tops that all off by saying: “In 2014 Radio 1’s Resident DJs brought our audience an incredibly diverse mix of music from the dance music world. To continue in this vein for 2015 we’ve enlisted a who’s who of the most exciting DJ and production talent in the world. It is a stellar, global line-up that demonstrates the breadth of dance music across Radio 1”.
