T.Williams will join BBC Radio 1’s In New DJs We Trust as part of the on-going rotation of new and fresh DJs.
He’ll take over from Éclair Fifi on Thursday 31 October from 9pm to 10pm.
He’s created original remixes for many artists including Wretch 32, Jessie Ware and Disclosure as well as performing at clubs and festivals all over the world. Radio says his show will reflect his musical outlook – with his hour influenced by jungle, garage, grime and house music.
T.Williams says: “My first experience of Radio 1 was tuning into the legendary John Peel show – his real broad range of influences and sounds really stuck with me through to today. I was lucky enough to have John Peel support my music on his radio show, and also to play at his memorial show at Maida Vale. So to come from that and now to be on Radio 1 as a DJ myself is a massive honour, if I can represent even 5 per cent of the breadth of music John Peel did I’ll be very happy.”
Louise Kattenhorn, Editor for BBC Radio 1, says: “T.Williams is a rising star – he’s been developing his talents as a broadcaster and DJ, as well as making music that’s been supported by the likes of Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Mistajam and Nick Grimshaw. We’re looking forward to welcoming him into the Radio 1 family.”
