Welcome to this site, here you can find the Radio One Essential Mix archives, ever since 1993 when it first broadcasted, up until today, and for the future. In time there will be features added for "artist in residence" which will be a profile of a DJ/Producer we will pick each month, and give you information about them and what they are doing now.

The page is updated by atleast a few people, so it is always up to date.

 risimmons writes: My favourite essential mix ever
Fantastic mix if you're into breakbeat/hip hop/funk etc.

 DrunkenMonkey writes: Life Changing.
Well alright, maybe a bit over the top but you know what I'm saying! That sketchy TDK D-90 has been with me for a long time now, and I badly need it on Mp3, must buy better computer!

 funkbunny303 writes: one of the best
One of the best mixes i've ever heard. Starts out with a classic, dark, trip-hop portishead groove, then just explodes all over the place with a killer hip-hop second half. A true 'essential mix' in that it is essential to have this set, and that the records they manage to mix in come from so many different styles and time periods. Absolutely brilliant how they pull this one off.

 Expedition writes: Very poor
This was really bad. I dont know why you all gave it 10. I give it 3 for the first half which was largely rubbish and 5 for the second half.

A big let down for a mix I was looking forward to hearing

 farnesbarnes writes: Not bad
At a time when house/progressive ruled, this was a welcome change from the norm. Dummy was flying high and the headz had pre-hyped it so much that it didn't quite deliver. It was a very good mix, up there with Massive Attack, but not as good as the Psychonauts.

 whalefish writes:
Check out Massive Attacks mix instead.

Reptitious and mediocre. I tried very hard to listen to this because I like Portishead, but this is good where their releases are beyond great.

 matrix writes: Excellent
Superb spread of music. Even the hip hop bit in the middle of the sandwich is great, with some excellent crate-digging around it.

 widzhit writes:

a must hear mix!

 Disco-Stu writes:
Largely rubbish, not what EM is supposed to be about at all i.e. dance music. At least FSOL offereings were trippy and chilled. One step away from getting Madonna to do an essential mix and I'm glad it never got as bad as that again.

 snoopkat writes:
What a mix!!! A real history of how we have the genres Hip-Hop and Breakbeat. Definetly in my top ten of EM's. A pleasure to behold!!

 orlando writes: Biggest collection
These are one of the best mixes i've ever heard in my life they are awesome, i love to collect this type of stuff ever, and i will get them too as i get some time form offering services of business hosting services along with the ecommerce hosts services at affordable price and now i am going to start reseller web hosting services which are really reliable and easy to use, but i one thing i must say that i never see a huge collection of mix any where else then here.

 yuri writes: Good mix!
No doubt, really good mix! On work I loop it two times at least.
