BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix

    Last month, masked British producer SBTRKT put together a fine little mix for Mary Anne Hobbs’s XFM radio show. But he wasn’t done spinning records on the radio just yet. He’s the latest act to take over BBC Radio 1 for the purpose of showcasing his “Essential Mix.” His playlist is one of the best we’ve heard in a minute as he played tracks from Radiohead, Flying Lotus, D’Angelo, and Hudson Mohawke, among others. Oh, and SBTRKT also shared a previously unreleased track, “Runaway,” that hopefully stems from an album or EP we’ll be hearing soon. You can stream the mix for the next seven days at BBC Radio 1’s website or listen below. [CoS]
