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.

completely classic.

 ad1mt writes: this is a great mix
this is a great mix - especially the first hour.

for me, the second hour is not quite as good, hence 8 instead of 10.

 Malacoda writes: Zesty!
This one seems to improve with each listen. Over a decade has passed and it still sounds remarkably fresh. Here we have a monumentally tasty mix that moves through highly diverse lands of range, style and tempo. Spacey downtempo electro, jazzy breaks, funk, dub, old-skool hip hop, strange futuristic techno, tribal beats and some seriously slammin acid house. What's more, it all works.

Really, the more I think about it, the more respect I have for the diversity of this mix. It's like a crazy mash-up of genres that nevertheless seems logically planned. Look for early Ninja Tune, Dust Brothers, Daft Punk and Jam/Spoon in the groovier sections, while obscure, classic acid rules in the middle of the mix.

Also, as is the case with these older mixes, Tong only chimes in a few times and there are no Radio1 promotional vocals mixed into the music.

These gents were true pinoeers. Find this mix and cherish it.

 SYSTEM-J writes:
To say these boys weren't known as DJs and earned their reputations through producing, this is a mix that shames many full-time professional DJs. Barnes and Daley show some real skills here, from playing records at the wrong RPM to cutting back and forth between tracks and mixing effortlessly between genres. There's practically no prog house either - it goes from ambient through the funkiest of breaks and dub into some serious techno, and then back out the other side. A great example of a production act using a DJ set to show the music that influenced them, rather than just playing a predictable signature style.

It does run out of steam a bit towards the end, but the first hour is nigh-on perfection so it deserves a 9/10.

This mix is by far the best essential mix and probably THE best mix I have ever listened to. I only first heard it in 2009 and it is absolutely brilliant! I would advise anyone that is seriously into their electronic music to have a good listen.
