After releasing his first solo music in five years with his latest single “Idontknow,” British electronic musician Jamie xx has assembled a brand new Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1. The two-hour set, hosted by Pete Tong, is the producer’s first Essential Mix since 2011 and features a slew of classic selects and dancefloor hits from the likes of Philip Glass, Koreless, DJ Technics, Peter Gabriel, and more. The xx member has also included a few unreleased tunes from himself in the mix, ensuring that his fans aren’t left empty-handed.
“The Essential Mix has always been an important one for me, been listening to it since before I was allowed to go to clubs,” Jamie shared in an Instagram post. “I spent the last two weeks trying to finish music so that it could be in here. Had a lot of fun! I hope you enjoy and can dance around your houses to it, and with friends online.”
