Something a little longer for you to plug into this fine Monday. Radio 1’s Essential Mix has been undergoing somewhat of a renaissance over the past couple of years, fuelled by a new generation of young producers and DJs pushing the Saturday night/Sunday morning institution past, in the most respectful way possible, the stalwarts of old.
The last two sum up why it is now compulsory listening for electronic music fans. The multi-talented and oft-hyped Nicolas Jaar has crafted a musical journey the weekend just gone, twisting together tunes from *NSYNC right through to Bill Calahan. This followed a joyous two hours from HD favourite Rustie. We’ve posted the Rustie one above as it’s right on the money with what we’re listening to right now, bringing the dulcet tones of Drake together with labelmate Hud Mo’s basslines and beats. It’ll pick you up.
Let us know if you think we plumped for the right one on twitter @humandrizzle. Either way, you get to hear Pete Tong doing his thing. The man LOVES dance music.
