BBC Radio 1 has announced its DJ residents for 2018. They rotate out DJ residents each year and among those who will have residencies this year include The Black Madonna, James Blake, who is a regular figure on BBC Radio 1, TOKiMONSTA and Mura Masa.
“There’s no other way to say it. This has been my dream from the very beginning of my life as a DJ,” says The Black Madonna about the opportunity to be a resident in a statement. "I taught myself to mix, with a box of records that my mother bought me on a small AM college radio station in Kentucky and I couldn’t be more delighted to be here with you all, exploring the ideas and sounds that matter to me most. We still believe!”
They will each have an hour slot on Thursday nights once a month. Two Djs will appear each Thursday night with eight in total. TDQ will kick things off at 11pm-midnight on January 4th and then Jubilee will continue the following hour, midnight to 1 a.m. Find the full schedule below.
