Deadmau5, Eats Everything and Jessy Lanza Lead the New 2017 Line-up for BBC Radio 1’s Residency
BBC Radio 1 have announced the new line up for BBC Radio 1’s Residency – the strand that brings listeners the biggest names in dance music, from the underground to the arena – with Deadmau5, Jessy Lanza, Eats Everything, Helena Hauff and Metrik joining the Residency team.
Radio 1’s Residency incorporates two shows on a Thursday night between 10pm – midnight, and midnight – 1am, featuring some of the freshest DJs and producers from the UK and around the world.
Kölsch and Will Atkinson will continue to form a part of the line-up of DJs on rotation, as will Logan Sama who continues with an extended slot.
The new line-up marks the end of Steve Angello, Oliver Heldens, Heidi, George FitzGerald and Louisahhh’s regular slot on BBC Radio 1’s Residency.
The new line-up is as follows:
1st Thursday of the month, beginning 5th January
12am: Will Atkinson
2nd Thursday of the month, beginning 12th January
12am: Helena Hauff
3rd Thursday of the month, beginning 19th January
10pm: Logan Sama
12am: Jessy Lanza
4th Thursday of the month, beginning 26th January
10pm: Eats Everything
Deadmau5 says: "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 the 5th January!"
Jessy Lanza says: “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.”
Eats Everything says: “I'm pretty speechless that I have been asked to host my own show on Radio 1. It's fairly surreal & 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 & 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 & 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.”
Rhys Hughes (Head of Programmes, BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra) says: “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 8 years.”
