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.

 Origen writes: good chit.
Derrick Carter didn't disappoint with this one. Good chicago house style... quality tune selection (with the exception of the played out 'Lazy'.. how many times will this make it on the E-mix??)

Glad to hear some quality U.S. house on Radio 1.

 seeker writes: a good one
nothing really surprising here. carter gives what you'd expect: funky house with some vocal bits. a little bit deep, but never losing the pace. better than the roger sanchez mix a couple of weeks ago.

nice summertime house music.

 Styarc writes: i agree
I havent had to chance to hear the full Derrick Carter mix, but I agree with seeker. Seems to have a lot more going for it than the Roger Sanchez mix.

 paulcee writes: Incorrect tracklisting
Not to sure whats going on here but some of the tracks listed are incorrect and quite a few have been left out.

 seeker writes: typical
hey paulcee,

sounds like a typical Radio 1 SNAFU. the tracklistings posted there (which are thence copied here) are quite often incomplete, incorrectly ordered, or just plain wrong.

you can't really fault black et al. the problem originates futher upstream, either with the djs themselves, or the folks at the BBC.

 kinetik writes: Track name
Does anyone know the name of the funky track with opera-style vocals @ 25:00.

Tried to find it through the tracklistings, but it does not seem to be any of the ones listed.

 ninabebop writes: Help with this mix

I'm a bad boy and downloaded this mix, but like everyone else I'm so confused about the tracklisting, that I think it might be another essential mix from another year.
Can anyone verify that towards the end, there seems to be a Destiny's Child remix with the lyrics bug-a-boo? And another song with the lyrics "somone been in your bank book"?

[ Posted on 2004-03-11 20:14:02 ]

Anyone found out the correct tracklisting for this yet? it has been infuriating me for months, trying to find the tunes from this mix! I'm particulary after the track he plays the destiny's child bugaboo vocal over. any help would be appreciated. Cheers.

The story with this was that the BBC or somethin lost the mix that this tracklist is for n this was a totally different mix! the tune that the bugaboo acapella is over is Underground Culture Tourist - Jackin' the Jazz on Classic, delted but best try eBay!

 jamieboy writes: track listing
does anybody know the name of the track on the essential mix just over an hour in. it's a fast jazzy number with trumpets in it, some three of 4 behind the bug-a-boo vocal track that some have been after, which is on classic. there are quite a few tracks played on the is emix which appear on his live emix a year earlier live in chicago at red 5 but none are listed on this so i can only assume they are all wrong on this? please help

sissil, that is amazing, thanks a LOT for that list! Any idea what the track at 96:30 could be? It's based on Salsoul Orchestra - Ooh, I Love It.
