Talking to MixMag about the new project, House DJ Denis Sulta said: “Ever since I was even remotely aware of Radio 1, I aspired to be the voice that I heard through the stereo as it’s one of the biggest radio stations in the world. To be broadcasting my own show on BBC Radio 1 as part of the Residency is something that is absolutely incredible for me. I just think it’s really, really cool."
In a similar vein, Ukrainian born Nastia explains: “Growing up as an artist, being on BBC Radio 1 was the highest point of success I could dream about. It’s a legend, a monster, making so many artists huge and important. For me now, I’m proud to say it’s a platform where I can speak out about music, industry and DJ life … After doing my own radio show in Ukraine for 10 years and having had a three-year break from it, to come back on air with the BBC is that dream finally coming true. What can you expect from me? Different things! I like to surprise!
