Talk about starting as you mean to go on. BBC Radio 1 has locked in Carl Cox for the very first Essential Mix of 2018.
Coxy's studio mix, airing at 4am on January 6, comes as the revered mix series celebrates its 25th anniversary.
Last year saw Helena Hauff, Artwork, Calibre, Hunee, Maya Jane Coles and more step up for the Essential Mix.
For a taste of what Coxy's had in his locker recently, have a listen to the set he did for John Digweed's Transitions radio show at Burning Man last year.
Tune into the Essential Mix here.
