"The Plastician" Joins BBC Radio One

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.

First post of 2006..... Big updates.....

Yo!

Happy New year and all that, hope you all had a good Xmas as well.

2006 has started with a BANG! Dubstep seems to have taken some huge steps already, with DMZ packed to capacity last Saturday (on arguably the least busy saturday night out of the whole year) and then to top that off, Dubstep Wars on the Breezeblock (Radio One) was an absolute success - surely enticing even more people towards the sound with some amazing mixes laid down by dubstep's finest. Looks like 2006 is going to be a highly pivotal year.

The name change saga continues, with lawyers breathing down my neck I have decided to change it to........... you'll have to wait a few days - keeping you on your toes! But I definitely will be changing it - hopefully it won't harm the foundations I've spent the last 5 years of my life building.

My first show of 2006 happened last weekend - Skepta joined me to ring in the new year - the show in it's entirety can be found here.....
