Things kicked off this week with house DJ and producer Vintage Culture, with the Brazilian taking the reins for the month of July.

"It's a privilege to share my music and connect with listeners in the UK and around the world on this legendary radio station. I'm excited to bring my sound and vision to the BBC and be part of the Radio 1 family.”

August will see NIKS head up the residency, having released her debut EP earlier this year. She promises to share a real tapestry of sounds across the month:

"I'm super excited to be joining the BBC Radio 1 residency in August this year," she says. "As someone who grew up listening to 'In New DJs We Trust', it's a true honour to join this legacy of homegrown DJs and the legendary show. I'm really looking forward to showcasing the different musical facets that have formed my sound today, from the early 90s right through to the present day.”

Things pivot to a drum 'n' bass focus for September, as DJ, songwriter and vocalist A Little Sound begins her residency slot, which she credits for helping find her own "little sound":

"Now that I have found that - my sound was deeply embedded in the drum 'n' bass scene - BBC Radio 1 have continuously supported the journey and I am super grateful to share it all with them! From a time where I used to narrate school plays, to the present where I’m now hosting my own residency show is actually so surreal and I can’t thank the Radio 1 team enough.”
