Today’s a day of mixed feelings for me, as I’m excited to announce that I’m joining BBC Radio 1’s The Residency. Sadly this of course means my time on the station that made my name, London’s leading Rinse FM, will have come to an end.
The last Plasticman show on Rinse will be February 3rd, after which I’ll be joining the Residency for Radio One's very first dubstep and grime-dedicated show. The first of my shows will be broadcast on February 5th. This will be simulcasting on DAB and FM nationally and worldwide online.
The show works on a rotational basis between 6 DJ's each representing different genres of electronic dance music, which means I will be on every 6 weeks.
I will also use this as an opportunity to officially change my name from Plasticman.... to "The Plastician". This is to avoid further confusion between myself and Richie Hawtin.
I would like to take this chance to thank Rinse FM, all DJs and management for all their help in getting me where I am today. No one does dubstep and grime like Rinse, and I have no doubt that they will continue to break artists through from the underground, right into the mainstream.
Looking forward, I’m excited about pushing new UK underground artists and production talent to a whole new audience. I'm sure you will agree this is a MASSIVE look for the entire scene.
