Palms Trax makes rousing Essential Mix debut

This post was originally published on this site

Cheekily dubbed as the west country-born, Berlin-based underground star by BBC‘s Pete Tong, Palms Trax has finally made his debut in the Essential Mix DJ booth.

Real name Jay Donaldson, Palms Trax’ ubiquity in the dance world is becoming increasingly deserved as time carries on. He has bold sonic inclinations and an unabashed M.O. where he moves between genres and decades with ease — rare for someone as young as he. Despite being just 26-years-old, Donaldson’s encyclopedic musical expertise has situated him as an artist who’s talented beyond his years, if one were to see age as but a limit on such a thing.

Donaldson’s Essential Mix is steeped in a resplendent arrangement of classic dance tracks, from Angela’s 1984 “I Gotta Little Love,” to hidden gem house tracks from World Building records’ “Paraíso ’89” by Azura. His splicing of Azura’s track alone is a testament to his adroit crate digging, especially considering that Azura’s breezy Balearic business was extremely short-lived in the Italian house realm, she’s an act who’s slipped through the cracks for most.

Palms Trax has expressed he’ll be working on material for Dekmantel throughout the beginning of the new year and after listening to his deliverance of just the second Essential Mix of 2018, just following Carl Cox, one can only hope to see big things from Donaldson in the new year.

MUST LISTEN: Carl Cox kicks off the 25th year of BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix

This post was originally published on this site

The techno maven Carl Cox has served up the very first BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix of the year.

Considering the show turns 25 this year, it’s fitting that Cox — who Pete Tong referred to as “one of the most legendary DJs in dance history” — served up the very first mix of the year.

Cox’s first Essential Mix came in October of 1994 for the program’s 49th episode where he dropped off a selection of satiating tracks from the time, including Green Velvet’s original “Preacher Man” mix, Jackmaster‘s legendary “Bang The Box,” and Jeff Mills‘ “Cycle 30” and “Life Cycle.”

Cox delves into what he’s dubbed as “the future of house and techno” in the new mix. In just over two hours, he serves up an electric array of tracks from today’s heavy-hitters in the genres from Nicole Moudaber, to Eats Everything, Nathan Barato, and more.

Good Morning Mix: fake DJs should feel personally attacked by DJ Craze’s Essential Mix

This post was originally published on this site

What can be said about DJ Craze that Pete Tong doesn’t cover in his introduction to the Miami-based veteran selector’s debut Essential Mix? Hailed by the host as, “one of the most technically gifted DJs, ever,” Tong goes on to highlight Craze’s three consecutive DMC world champion crownings, undoubtedly solidifying the Slow Roast Records founder’s spot in the highest echelons of the DJ ring of honor. From there, the turntablist quickly descends into two hours of elbow-throwing trap, hip-hop, and breaks spanning a spectrum that covers Skrillex to Vince Staples, Noisia to Kendrick Lamar with so much in between.

Craze’s Essential Mix leaves no room for subtlety –– fake DJs should feel personally attacked. Putting on a rare lesson in “real DJing,” Craze has clearly forgotten more about Technics than most professional DJs will ever learn in their lifetimes.

Cuts from A Tribe Called Quest and Mobb Deep seamlessly rub shoulders with material from Ricky Remedy, Ekali, and RL Grime, all weaved together with masterful, flawless scratch routines. Craze reiterates exactly why he’s unequivocally carried the scratch DJing torch throughout his decorated career, dropping off one of the sharpest Essential Mixes of recent memory.

Bicep flex their sonic expertise in new Essential Mix

This post was originally published on this site

After churning out an innumerable number of classic house tracks under their unpredictable M.O., the Belfast-based Bicep found their niche, or perhaps a more aptly-categorized lack thereof. But such is what earns the Belfast-duo their wide acclaim in the dance realm. Considering the two began as prolific bloggers at their own site, Feel My Bicep, the very weaving of an inquisitive amalgamation of house and electro is in their blood. It should come as no surprise that the duo’s tunes draw from an array of material.

This year, Bicep dropped off their highly-anticipated debut album. The self-titled work was a stylistically expanse deliverance that served as one of contemporary dance music’s deepest releases of the year. It was also an album in which the two flexed their sonic multitudes of both tenacity and flexibility.

Bicep is now ending the year strong with an Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1. In a two-hour voyage through the worlds of Italo, breakbeat, and more, Bicep divulges on one of the most meticulous masterpieces of the last year.

Henry Saiz’ Essential Mix debut is a spellbinding journey across the world [LISTEN]

This post was originally published on this site

Natura Sonoris owner Henry Saiz set out on his biggest venture yet in summer 2016, launching a Kickstarter campaign to fund his very first audio-visual album. Its immersive concept involved the Spanish progressive magnate and his band traveling to unique and particularly magnifying parts of the globe to record vastly different tracks that incorporated various elements of each location within them. Fans rushed to meet the funding goal, and thus the vision has since come to fruition.

Pete Tong and the Essential Mix caught wind of the LP’s completion, and thus invited Saiz onto the iconic series to show off his world travel concept to the world. Moreover, it was his first appearance ever on Essential Mix, marking a milestone moment that shows off the return of progressive to respectability.

Needless to say, the mix was magic in all sense of the word. Immersive and ethereal, Saiz defied genre boundaries and put forth pure, caliber music for two hours. While his mix wasn’t specifically comprised of songs from his forthcoming LP, it was a veritable sonic adventure that served as an excellent preview of what’s to come. Listeners were taken all around the world, from Berlin, to Saigon, to Joshua Tree, and treated to a vast expanse of sounds from each new region the album “stopped” at.

Each new song was vivid enough in its sonic form to conjure intense mental imagery: didgeridoos fluttered around the background of the Australia-themed portion of the mix, stimulating pictures of Aboriginals. Meanwhile, elegant pianos and brooding melodies created a sonic representation of Europe.

Saiz has created a truly profound journey in his first Essential Mix, and  Dancing Astronaut agrees it has the fixings for Mix of the Year.

Honey Dijon delivers a vibrant, flavorful Essential Mix debut

This post was originally published on this site

There is nothing about Honey Dijon that can be described as “bland.” Like the condiment from which she takes her name, the iconic Chicago DJ, fashion bellwether, and trans rights activist is a complex, deeply tasteful individual. Honey Dijon’s extensive résumé boasts performances at international underground havens like Berghain, global prestige in the fashion industry, and her unique status as a protegée of Detroit techno legend Derrick Carter.

This past weekend, the renaissance woman added yet another impressive line to her legacy with her first-ever Essential Mix. As with any of the artist’s renowned sets, Honey Dijon’s Essential Mix is rooted in enlivening, cerebral house and techno, yet draws from a wealth of vibrant influences outside of the club realm. Legendary Nigerian musician Fela Kuti is as crucial to the composition of the mix as cuts from Matrixxman and Honey Dijon’s own musical catalogue.

Listen to Honey Dijon’s Essential Mix.

Tracklist:

The Beautiful Children (Honey Dijon & Seven Davis Jr.) – Meet Me Downtown (Unreleased Demo)
Lime – Angel Eyes (AG’s Re-Edit)
Cori Josias – Taking It Straight (DC Edit)

Oliver Heldens returns to the Essential Mix as HI-LO

This post was originally published on this site

To be tapped for an Essential Mix at any age is a highly prestigious honor – indeed, there remain many veteran DJs who still have yet to step behind BBC Radio 1’s hallowed decks. It’s fair to say that Oliver Heldens has just achieved a historic feat in the program’s history this weekend, providing his second Essential Mix at the age of 22. In 2014, as he was pioneering the then-burgeoning future house genre, the prodigious Dutch producer debuted on the series at just 19.

For his sophomore contribution to the program, Heldens dons his HI-LO alias, the project through which he purveys music of a more deep house, electro, and techno-influenced character than his standard fare. As his alter-ego, the Heldeep label-head delivers a mix that explores a variety of energizing club music from eclectic roots. Recognizable vocals from Beastie Boys’ “Intergalactic” and Justin Timberlake’s “SexyBack” play as important a role in the overall set as the selections from contemporary techno mainstays such as Mark Reeve and Pig&Dan.

Throughout the broadcast, Heldens also pays homage to some of dance music’s most esteemed veterans, including classics from Mr. Oizo, Orlando Voorn, and Richie Hawtin. Amid his eclectic set, the artist further features a number of songs from both of his projects’ catalogues, perhaps most notably with his Sander van Doorn collaboration, “WTF” (a modernized take on Fatboy Slim and Benny Benassi’s beloved “What The Fuck”).

Listen to the HI-LO Essential Mix here.

Tracklist:

Hi‐Lo – Renegade Mastah
Hannah Wants & Chris Lorenzo – Rhymes
Solid Groove – This Is Sick
Beastie Boys – Intergalactic
Mr. Oizo – Flat Beat

Mura Masa stuns in his eclectic, emotive Essential Mix debut

As less than a week remains until July 14, Mura Masa has begun to share glimpses into his self-titled debut album. In the past two weeks, the British artist has shared four new songs off of the LP, featuring the likes of Bonzai, Tom Tripp, and the iconic Damon Albarn. The breadth of Alex Crossan’s critical achievements at the age of 21 is staggering, and this weekend marked yet another milestone for the prodigious producer: his first-ever Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1.

Given the imminence of Mura Masa, it would seemingly be tempting for Crossan to center his mix around his forthcoming album. Naturally, the artist doesn’t evade drawing from his catalogue – three of his own songs appear throughout the broadcast, as well as a remix of his A$AP Rocky collaboration, “Love$ick,” from Mumdance. However, Mura Masa opts to use the Essential Mix as a platform to show off his acute, eclectic tastes.

Opening with Perfume Genius’ breathtaking single, “Otherside,” Mura Masa weaves together a set from some of electronic music’s greatest composers – including Four Tet, Aphex Twin, James Blake, and Jamie xx – and influential figures from across genre bounds. Ranging from Thom Yorke to A$AP Mob, and from MF DOOM to Wham!, Alex Crossan leaves no stone unturned in his impressively tasteful Essential Mix debut.

Listen to Mura Masa’s Essential Mix here.

Tracklist:

Perfume Genius – Otherside
Alice Coltrane – Wisdom Eye

The Essential Mix hits festival season with 5 sets from EDC and Glastonbury

This post was originally published on this site

As June draws to a close and summer officially begins, the de facto “festival season” finds itself in the midst of its peak. In celebration of the ongoing abundance of music festivals around the globe, BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix broadcast a special six-hour episode this weekend, tapping into enviable sets from two of the world’s largest festivals: the British Glastonbury festival and Las Vegas’ Electric Daisy Carnival.

For the first three hours of this weekend’s Essential Mix, Radio 1 broadcast three consecutive sets live from Glastonbury’s BBC Music Introducing Stage. UK house mainstays Patrick Topping and Richy Ahmed provide the first third of the Glastonbury coverage, followed by a set from swiftly-ascending Berlin-based DJ Peggy Gou. Rounding out the first half of the Essential Mix’s festival edition, in-demand Glaswegian artist Jackmaster purveys a mix which would prove duly coveted as a standalone episode in the Radio 1 series (as would any of the aforementioned).

Listen to the Glastonbury Essential Mixes

For the following 90 minutes, the Essential Mix pivots stateside to rebroadcast a set from one of the most scintillating names that the program has offered in 2017: John Digweed. For his EDC performance, the legendary British artist builds an entrancing sonic journey of progressive house and techno, including freshly-minted music from the likes of Tale Of Us, Maceo Plex, and Victor Ruiz.

Listen to John Digweed’s EDC Essential Mix

The program’s festival marathon finishes up with another 90-minute EDC set from Lee Foss. Coming off of his April debut album, Alchemy, the American artist has been a formidable force in house in techno in recent years, sitting with Jamie Jones at the helm of Hot Creations as well as his own Repopulate Mars imprint. Foss’ EDC show succeeds in showing off his essence of quirky, soulful tech house. Filled with unreleased and unidentified music, the mix is further replete with songs from the likes of CamelPhat and Latmun, and ends fittingly with Jamiroquai’s “Cloud 9.”

Revisit Skream’s first Essential Mix on its 10th anniversary

Solardo deliver an electrifying Essential Mix debut

Joseph Capriati brilliantly bares his essence in his first ‘real’ Essential Mix

Revisit Skream’s first Essential Mix on its 10th anniversary

This post was originally published on this site

Few genres have had as dramatic an evolution over time as that of dubstep. The aggressive, often cacophonous LFO wails which have come to define dubstep’s public perception since 2010 are a far cry from the gritty, subdued beats and dub samples which characterized its early days.

There is no single person who better epitomizes dubstep’s nascent stage than Skream. Though Oliver Jones currently presides as one of the most compelling artists in the house and techno circuit, the taste-making chameleon is widely considered to be one of the genre’s primary progenitors.

In 2005, Jones released “Midnight Request Line,” a song regarded by many as the first dubstep track ever produced. Two years later, as dubstep became an indomitable force in the UK, Skream provided the first proper dubstep Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1.

Today, June 17, 2017, Skream’s debut Essential Mix turns 10 years old. At just 21 years old, Jones introduced the world to the most malleable genre of the era. Throughout the two-hour set, the British DJ offered a crash course in dubstep, rinsing tracks from some influential figures such as Coki, Rusko, and Benga in addition to a comprehensive selection from his own catalogue.

It’s easy to see why Pete Tong refers to Skream as “the sound of dubstep” during the broadcast: at times menacing and at times sedate, his 2007 Essential Mix dutifully encapsulates the essence of the genre in its purest form.

Tracklist (Via BBC):

Skream – ‘Hedd Banger’ (Dub)
Skream – ‘Percression’ (Dub)
Skream – ‘Shake It’ (Dub)
Skream – ‘Hurt Them’ (Dub)
