Carl Cox’s BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix is here and it is epic.
Delivering the very first mix of 2018, Cox offered up a stylish, signature blend of selections, with tracks from the likes of Anja Schneider, Nicole Moudaber and Nathan Barato.
Plucking new music from Dense & Pika and Eats Everything, as well as tunes from the likes of Redlight and Riva Starr, Cox delivered an intense deep dive into delectable dance music.
Show host Pete Tong opened the show with a celebratory message to the Essential Mix, which turns 25 this year, calling Cox “one of the most legendary DJs in dance history."
