Can U Dance – BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix

Selector superduo Can U Dance swung by Glastonbury on their European tour last week, and blasted out an hour of music to get you PUMPED:

Put out there as an Essential Mix, it’s Oneman and Jackmaster at their very best, racing through tunes from INXS to The Streets and clearly enjoying their new project. In fairness, who wouldn’t? It’s basically an opportunity for them to play wall-to-wall bangers at festivals all summer.

Human Drizzle: The Playlist, Eastern Electrics 2014

eastern-electrics-2014Earlier this month, we went off on one about the re-imagined Eastern Electrics festival, taking place Saturday 2nd August. A stellar line up of techno and house talent touching down in leafy Hertfordshire, record bags fully loaded with prized gems that are absolutely sure to knock your socks off. Tickets here. Tickets here. And tickets here.

Being the considerate people that we are, we thought we’d lob together 90 minutes worth of tracks that best represent our favourites producers from the Eastern Electrics programme. We think this shows that we are absolutely buzzing at the prospect of getting down to Hatfield House for 11 hours of some of the finest dance music you’ll find anywhere.

Given the strength of the Eastern Electrics brand, it’s no surprise that they’ve been able to curate such a quality line-up. In our EXCLUSIVE playlist below, you’ll find offerings from HD faves T. Williams, Waifs & Strays, Mano Le Tough and Waze & Odyssey, not to mention one of the tunes of last year from Agoria, and arguably one of 2014’s best offerings from KiNK and Daniel Avery.

EE2014

The fun doesn’t end there. Main stagers Maxxi Soundsystem, Steve Lawler, Art Department and house legend Kerri Chandler all have their say, and we cap things off with Route 94 and Dense & Pika.

Need some more? Well, we’re spent, but we suggest you join us on the 22 minute journey from King’s Cross out to the countryside on 2 August for a day of sun-fuelled 4/4 frivolity. For those that missed it the first, second and third times, here’s the ticket link again. But be hasty, they’re running out fast…

Over to you.

The xx – Chained (ONEMAN 119 House Edit)

Rinse DJ and serious selector DJ Oneman occasionally blesses us with one of his own productions and he’s uncorked a real one here, twisting The xx’s downbeat bedroom jam ‘Chained’ into a dancefloor-ready jackin’ house tune. That’s all you need to know really.

For a taste of Oneman’s selecting skills, check out a recent set he did for Young Turks down under:

Also, whilst we’re on The xx, the speedy amongst you can grab a free Jamie/Romy/Oliver EP, created for the iTunes’ 12 Days of Christmas giveaway, snappily called ‘The xxmas’. It’s worth it for the extended mix of ‘Sunset’ by Jamie xx, download it here.
