Listen to DJ Stingray’s BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix

His mix features music from Solid Blake, Surgeon, Drexciya and more...

He may already have over two decades of DJing under his belt, but last weekend saw DJ Stingray finally step up to make his debut on BBC Radio 1's Essential Mix.

Over the course of his two-hour mix, the Detroit DJ tears through 54 tracks, drifting between steely techno and breakneck electro. His contribution to the show takes in tracks from Solid Blake, Dax J, Rebekah and Surgeon amongst many others, before naturally coming to a close on the Drexciyan classic Cascading Celestial Giants.

The mix sees him flit between electro and techno old and new with the usual precision and speed he's known for. You can listen to it in full, and peep the full tracklist, here.

DJ Stingray is set to play this year's edition of Field Maneuvers, as well as London's Junction 2 in June.
