Jamie xx – BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix

At 3am yesterday morning (don’t panic, the mix is usually pre-recorded in the studio at a decent hour) Jamie xx took to the Radio 1 Essential Mix decks for 2-hours of non-stop electronic music that let’s face it, Radio 1 wouldn’t normally choose to play.

There’s some great material here from James Blake, Aardvarck, Pangaea and of course Jamie’s own reworking of Radiohead’s ‘Bloom’ and Gil Scott Heron’s ‘I’ll Take Care of U’.

Broadcast on BBC Radio 1, 27th August 2011.
