Australian DJ/producer Flume delivered his debut BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix this past weekend. The two-hour set included five exclusive tracks of his own, though it hasn’t been confirmed whether they will appear on his upcoming EP. Also included were cuts from artists like Vic Mensa, Vince Staples, Jamie xx, Salva, and TroyBoi.
From future bass and hip-hop to deep house and beyond, the Aussie described his mix as “a bit of a journey, not a straight up dancefloor mix.”

Eric Prydz Is Taking Submissions for His Next Mix

Eric Prydz
Back in 2013, Swedish DJ/producer Eric Prydz included a track in his BBC Radio 1 “Essential Mix” by Cory Lasser, a relatively unknown producer at the time. The obscure selection immediately sparked curiosity in the blogosphere, as fans wanted to know who Lasser was and how Prydz discovered him. It turned out that Lasser submitted an original to Prydz just weeks before the mix aired.
On January 3, Prydz and fellow Swede Jeremy Olander will deliver the first “Essential Mix” of 2015. Once again, producers will have a chance to be included in the mix, as Prydz announced yesterday that he’s now taking submissions of original tracks:
