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.

This mix is a mental mix. I dont even know what genre is fuckin is.
Its like house techno with a funkeh attitude.
During the time the sound was Sash, BBE, Brainbug and similar. But this mix was like a breath of fresh air. 9/10. They would have gotten a 10 if the fools never played Pink Floyd at the start............. AAAV IT!!!!

This mix gets better and better. A lot of Dutch labels here.

I need to know where the movie sound clips came from.
"Must have thought it was white boy day"

"I love to get pie after a meal" Kristian Slaters voice, i think.

All the clips are from Tarantino's True Romance I think.

 RR78 writes: True Romance clips
Well, thanks to Matrix's tip off about the film clip exerpts used in this frankly awesome essential mix which still sounds great today 15 years, yes, 15 years later, I've now worked out (after watching the film True Romance, 1993), who/where these clips came from:

1) "Yeah, I love to get pie after a movie" - Christian Slater.
2) "Would you like to go get some pie with me?" - Patricia Arquette.
3) "I'm 100%....manogamous" - Patricia Arquette.
4) "You stay with one guy" - Christian Slater.
5) "Shoot him in the face, put him down like a dog" - Val Kilmer.
6) "You must have thought it was a white boy day" - Gary Oldman.
7) "They were here, then they siad they were going to go there and they went" - a rather stoned Brad Pitt!

Oh, and for those who are feeling as much an anorak as me right now the glockenspeil opening/closing tune is Hans Zimmers - "You're So Cool/ The Beach Song". Hans's version of Carl Orffs - "Schulwerk".

And the scene where Slater kills Oldman the tune playing in the whorehouse is Nymphomania - "I Want Your Body" - a perfect tune for the scene, high energy and slightly sleazy!!

Slater - Clarence. Arquette - Alabama. Kilmer - Elvis Presley. Oldman - Drexl. Pitt - Floyd.

I don't know of many other essential mixes that use film exceprts apart from the obvious one in Oakenfolds Goa Mix where he has Harrison Ford's "Go right, stop, give me a hard copy right there" before he slams it into MWNN - "Floor Essence" - superb!
Anyone else know of film excerpts used in EM's?
Anorak season over!!
