Following on from Mosca’s maiden voyage last week, house star Julio Bashmore has hosted his first full Radio 1 Show.
Bashmore’s new slot is part of the In New DJs We Trust series on Thursday evenings. The slot, which runs from 21:00 until 22:00, rotates between Bashmore, Mosca, B-Traits and Jordan Suckley.
Bashmore’s definitely an eclectic selector: his inaugural tune is No More’s no-wave classic ‘Suicide Commando’. DJ Rashad, Addison Groove, The-Dream, Earth People and Kenny Dixon Jr all feature. There’s also brand new material from Girl Unit’s forthcoming Club Rez EP.
Bashmore’s catchphrase throughout is “mysteriously swashbuckling house music”- confusing, but definitely better than “Comin’ atcha through the cornflakes”. Click here to listen to the set on BBC iPlayer.
If you think that Bashmore should be seen as well as heard, check out his cameo in Jessie Ware’s sumptuous ‘110%’ video.
