Mosca and Julio Bashmore, two of the finest producers to emerge from the UK in recent years, have landed shows on Radio 1.

Both artists hit it big last year with their respective singles ‘Bax’ and ‘Battle for Middle You’, and will be rotating with B-Traits and Jordan as part of the station’s specialist music strand In New DJs We Trust, meaning that each will helm one show a month. Former hosts on the New DJs slots have included Heidi and Skream & Benga.

The move is part of another larger switch-up in Radio 1 and 1Xtra’s programming, with Greg James, Scott Mills, Jameela Jamil, Gemma Cairney and Toddla T all getting new slots. For more information on that, click here.

Naturally, this move makes us feel rather smug about profiling both Mosca and Bashmore as two of the UK’s finest up-and-coming artists in a column back in November 2009, but then we’re always smug. Comes with the territory.
