BBC Radio 1 has long supported new dance artists – and have chosen up-and-coming dance collective Animal Music to be part of their huge Ibiza event, R1 Dance Radio.
It’s a huge honour for Animal Music, and recognises the hard work the band have put in whilst they have blended their mix of raucous live shows and heavy dance beats into one frenetic aesthetic.
And recognition of the breadth of new talent on Manchester’s MUK record label comes in the shape of labelmates MDNGHT being asked to do a 15-minute guest mix within Animal Music’s slot.
They will be DJing in between Radio 1’s infamous Dance Anthems show and Hospital Records’ takeover – a highly prestigious two-hour slot.
There are a host of huge names DJing across the week-long, 24-hour-a-day event, including Annie Mac, Pete Tong, Defected Records, Resident Advisor and Food Music.
