Carl Cox has delivered the first Essential Mix of 2018. You can listen to it below.
As deftly mixed as we’d expect from a man who was among the first to champion three-deck mixing, it features a host of astutely chosen cuts, with established names such as Riva Starr, Eats Everything, Booka Shade and Anja Schneider rubbing shoulders with fledgling acts like Tom Cole, Fabio Neural and Chris Coe.
Cox’s Essential Mix marks the broadcast’s 25th anniversary this year, kicking off celebrations in 2018.
Pete Tong opens the show by referring to Coxy as “one of the most legendary DJs in dance history”. Be sure to tune in to Coxy’s 45th (!) Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1’s website here.
