Martin Garrix has revealed that he will be joining Justin Bieber on the Australian leg of his current Purpose World Tour, which takes place in March 2017.
Bieber’s tour takes in stops in Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and more down under, for a string of five shows that run between Monday 6th and Saturday 18th March 2017.
Earlier this year (July), Garrix teased that the pair may also be working on music together. Speaking about whether a collaboration is in the pipeline in an interview at the time, the Dutchman said, “There’s some rough ideas going back and forth. One day.”
Martin Garrix hit the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge with Bebe Rexha recently to perform their track, ‘In The Name Of Love’, as well as a cover of Twenty One Pilots’ ‘Heathens’.
You can watch both performances below, which see Garrix play the guitar alongside a full band in the studio.
BBC Radio 1 have revealed that MistaJam and Danny Howard will cover Annie Mac’s show when she takes maternity leave from January 2017.
MistaJam, who joined Radio 1Xtra in 2005 and currently presents their 7pm-10pm show Monday-Thuursday, will do the same days on Radio 1’s new music show, whilst Howard will cover Mac’s 7pm-10pm dance show on Friday nights.
First there came 'Safe and Sound', then there came psychedelic artwork and the album name 'Woman' — now we have 'Randy', the brand new single from Justice.
Premiered via Annie Mac's BBC Radio 1 show last night, 'Randy' apparently began life as “an almost industrial techno track” according to group member Xavier de Rosnay.
Far from that now, the track is floaty, funky number, one very fitting for an album which the pair describe as their most "joyful and relaxing" yet, going as far as to liken it to being "in the car with your best friend and your lover and your kids”.
During his co-hosting of Benji B's BBC Radio 1 show last night, Thom Yorke hinted at forthcomin collaborative work with experimental UK producers Four Tet and Burial.
The Radiohead frontman has worked with the pair in the past, dropping a 12" back in 2011. Yorke said he was "“hoping to do it again soon,” before admitting: “I did another thing, but the vocal was too dark, according to Kieran. For me, that’s ‘Really? Too dark, even for me? OK.'”
Following shows in LA and Miami earlier this year, Pete Tong will continue his BBC Radio 1 US expedition with the first ever Essential Mix show from New York City on 23rd September.
Taking place at Output in Williamsburg, the night will be headlined by the modern legend that is Seth Troxler, with Tong himself and Eli Escobar (look out for our feature with him in the new issue!) completing the mainroom bill.
“If you want underground music, there is nowhere better in America,” Troxler says of the club.
Radio 1 has announced the full line-up for its annual Ibiza takeover which will see the station's DJs heading to the White Isle on Friday 5th August for an entire weekend of Ibiza-inspired shows from Ushuaia hotel.
DJs confirmed to be performing during the live broadcast include Annie Mac, Pete Tong, Danny Howard, B. Traits, George Fitzgerald, Heidi, MistaJam, Toddla T, DJ Target and Kolsch.
Following the release of his fifth album 'The Mountain Will Fall' last month, DJ Shadow has recorded a new BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix.
According to Tweets from Shadow himself, the two-hour mix – his first for the station since 2003 – was recorded in two parts. The first hour, put together back in April, focuses on "New beats, new ideas. Lots of Cali stuff," whilst the second half features "Music very dear to my heart that is heretofore unknown. Definitely one for the hip-hop fanatics."
Dixon and Âme went back-to-back on the BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix over the weekend — and it's sounding lush!
Aired on the popular UK radio station, the mix includes new ones from Stimming and Mr. Fingers plus the new Bicep remix of Aussie producer, Isaac Tichauer.
It's not the first time the pair have appeared on the Essential Mix — Âme first took over back in 2006, whilst Dixon was in the mix in 2013.
