Goldie, Jamie xx and Derrick May will join BBC Radio 6 Music as part of the station’s Friday 6 Mix show.
They complete a six (naturally) act team which also features Groove Armada, Andrew Weatherall and Erol Alkan. The man behind Timeless and the seminal Metalheadz label, Goldie is considered one of drum’n’bass’s all time greats, while Derrick May is one of techno’s most celebrated artists. Jamie xx, meanwhile, divides his time between production and percussion in his band, the xx, and solo releases.
All six DJs will play back-to-back this Friday, October 25, before splitting off into individual shows on the following dates:
The Residents: Friday 25 October, 10pm-midnight
Goldie: Friday 1 November, 10pm-midnight
Derrick May: Friday 8 November, 10pm-midnight
Erol Alkan: Friday 15 November, 10pm-midnight
Groove Armada: Friday 22 November, 10pm-midnight
Andrew Weatherall: Friday 29 November, 10pm-midnight
Jamie xx: Friday 6 December, 10pm-midnight
Also, a special shot to Goldie: king of the Brentian pull quote. “As an artist I think it’s essential to reflect on a good spectrum of colour”, he says of his new residency. “Get ready for a hallucinogenic ride.” You can watch FACT TV’s encounters with Goldie below.
