TESSELA JOINS RADIO 1

Best of British Breakthrough Producer nominee Tessela has called up by Radio 1 for a Residency show, the slot previously known as In New DJs We Trust.

Broadcasted on Thursday 20th February and running 9pm to 10pm, the show will sit alongside others in the series from James Blake, Rockwell, Nervo, Steve Angello, George Fitzgerald and Heidi.

ARISE, SIR PETE OF TONG!

 A piece of news you may have missed over the festive period is that long-standing Radio 1 dance chief Pete Tong was made an MBE in the New Year’s Honours list.

An MBE is one of the ways of rewarding individuals’ personal bravery, achievement or service to the United Kingdom. Other UK DJs with MBEs include David Rodigan, Norman Jay, Trevor Nelson, Annie Nightingale and Jazzie B from Soul II Soul.

FIRST LISTEN: AVICII 'YOU MAKE ME'

Avicii premiered the second single from his debut album on Pete Tong's Radio One show on Friday night.

Following the phenomenal success of first single 'Wake Me Up', which became 2013's fastest selling single in the UK, the young talent provides a strong follow-up with second single 'You Make Me'. 

LISTEN TO NOIR'S ESSENTIAL MIX

Last night, Noir took to the Essential Mix decks for an exclusive two hour mix. The Danish DJ, producer and owner of the Noir Music imprint has helped to push real house music back into the mainstream consciousness over the last couple of years. This is the first time he has recorded an essential mix.

LISTEN TO ARMIN VAN BUUREN'S ESSENTIAL MIX

Speaking about the mix, Armin said "'With the current trend of giving DJ's only one hour slots at big festivals, I was extremely excited to hear Radio 1 wanted me to do a three hour set for a special Essential Mix. It's been a while since I did my last studio mix so I decided to make something special for you.

ESSENTIAL MIX: TENSNAKE

2010 was the year of the 'Coma Cat' and 2013 is the Chinese Year of the Snake, so it's safe to say we're on for another year of the Tensnake. He has just delivered his debut Radio One: Essential Mix after all.

LISTEN TO ERIC PRYDZ ESSENTIAL MIX

Eric Prydz took to the Essential Mix controls last night for the 7th time.

He used the two hour mix to showcase exclusive new Pryda material.

Pete Tong

“Time is always my biggest battle,” states voice of the dance music nation, Pete Tong. “Finding the time to do it all and have the right head space to listen to so much music, you have to be on the case!” And he certainly was on the case again in 2012, picking up the DJ Mag gong for Best Radio Show for his tireless work on the Essential Selection each and every week.
