Tessela has joined BBC Radio 1’s Residency.
Previously known as In New DJs We Trust, the Residency is made up of a series of temporary slots on the Radio 1 schedule, primarily dealing with up-and-coming dance acts. Tessela’s first show will take place on February 20, 9pm-10pm (James Blake has a two-hour slot the same night, from midnight to 2am).
Since debuting in 2011 with ‘Slugger’, Tessela has emerged as one of the UK’s most talked-about young producers, in no short part due to his slamming ‘Hackney Parrot’ single, later remixed by Paul Woolford’s Special Request alter-ago.
Here’s the Radio 1 Residency schedule for the coming weeks:
February 20: 9pm – Tessela, midnight – James Blake
February 27: 9pm – Branko, midnight – Rockwell
March 6: 9pm – Nervo. midnight – Steve Angello
March 13: 9pm – George Fitzgerald, midnight – Heidi
