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).

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.

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.”
