BBC Radio 1 has officially announced its 2018 weekly residency line-up, boasting some of dance music’s most sought-after acts “from the underground to the arena.”
Radio 1’s Residency programming includes two shows each Thursday evening. In 2017, deadmau5, Eats Everything, Kölsch, Ninjatune’s Helena Hauff, Jessy Lanza, Metrik, and Will Atkinson dominated the airwaves.
This coming year’s selects include The Black Madonna, Artwork, James Blake, Mura Masa, TQD (Royal-T, DJ Q and Flava D), Jubilee, Bradley Zero, and TOKiMONSTA.
The expansive array of artists is a major move for BBC as its selects certainly coincide with the changing tides of dance music, both underground and mainstream. Each artist will have monthly shows running from January to June 2018.
