BBC Radio 1 has revealed a new line-up for its Residency show.
Joy Orbison, DJ EZ, Amelie Lens and Disclosure have all newly joined the rotation of residents for six monthly shows. SHERELLE, Eris Drew & Octo Octa, Teki Latex, and Saoirse will all return having first joined the line-up earlier this year, with Paul Woolford, Grimes, Caribou and Denis Sulta all departing the show.
“I’ve grown up listening to Fabio & Grooverider, Benji B, Gilles Peterson and more,” Joy Orbison says, “so it means a great deal to have my own show on a station with such an important legacy.”
The new line-up will join the show from September 7th, getting underway with Joy Orbison and Eris Drew & Octo Octa. The show will air each Monday on Radio 1 from 1am until 3am BST.
