Radio 1 is bringing in six new DJs to play on The Residency.

The new show is being championed by Pete Tong who initially invited each DJ to record demos at Radio 1.

The Residency has been designed to ensure Radio 1 continues to champion the most important new dance music genres from the UK, whilst also giving new and emerging talent their first chance to broadcast on national radio.

Each DJ will play once every six weeks for a total of six shows. After 36 weeks the entire line-up will be reviewed by Pete Tong with possible DJ additions, new genres and changes made to the mix.

The Residency will take over from Dreem Teem's Soulful Sessions which has ended its run on the station. Spoony will continue his weekend breakfast show. Timmi Magic and Mikee B have left the station.

You'll be able to hear the new show on

Sunday mornings 3am-5am from May 1st.

The first six DJs will be (in order of rotation):

Eddie Halliwell – Across the board from trance, techno to hard dance

Nic Fanciulli – Acid house and techno

Jon O'Bir – Progressive/Uplifting trance

Kutski – Underground hard dance/Hardcore

Crissy Criss – Drum & Bass/Jungle

Trophy Twins – All genres of house, from funky to tribal

Pete Tong: "I feel proud to be involved in 'The Residency' from start to finish. The plan with the show is to stay fresh and react to what's hot out there. Nic and Eddie were made Radio 1 Residents a year ago and have played at many of our live events, they've now got the chance to shine as broadcasters for the first time. The other DJs are equally promising and will cover genres across both underground and mainstream dance. I look forward to watching them grow over the next 8 months or so."

Ian Parkinson, Radio 1's Head of Specialist, Speech and 1Xtra:"I am delighted to welcome 'The Residency' DJs to the station. The addition of this slot will make our specialist music schedule the most exciting listen possible. The line-up have exceptional talent and cover genres that will appeal to a huge cross-section of our audience. Dreem Teem have hosted a great show over the past four years, I'd like to thank them for their work and wish them all the best."
