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.

 seeker writes: funky soul and soulful funk
nice one. very different from most of what you hear on the essential mix. a little too much scratching, perhaps. and the first hour is better than the second.

put in on at dinner parties.

I agree that there is too much scratching, but this mix is a breath of fresh air. I already had a CD by David Holmes entitled Essential mix 98/02 or something. There is some crossover with this mix, but it's not exactly the same.

A real feelgood mix.
