Jessy Lanza and Logan Sama are amongst the new names added to BBC Radio 1's Residency.

The station is set to shake up its residency commitments, with Steve Angello, Oliver Heldens, Heidi, George FitzGerald and Louisahhh seeking pastures new.

Kölsch and Will Atkinson will continue, with grime don Logan Sama enjoying an extended role.

The new line up contains a few clangers - deadmau5, anyone? - but there's plenty to celebrate, with Hyperdub artist Jessy Lanza gaining a slot.
