Palms Trax drops sizzling Essential Mix: Listen

An irresistible mix of classic house, off-kilter techno and playful electro pop...

Palms Trax has made his BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix debut and it is as dreamy as it is eclectic. The show, which aired on Saturday 13th, can be streamed in full below. 

Over the course of the two-hour mix, the Berlin-based Bristol native veers from sizzling vintage house, afrobeat and highlife infused disco, propulsive techno and more in between.

Since being named as best breakthrough producer as part of our Best of British 2015, the 26-year-old has gone from strength to strength, with releases notched up on labels such as Lobster Theremin and Dekmantel and appearances at some of the world’s best clubs and festivals, from Panorama Bar and The Warehouse Project to Glastonbury and Love International.

Already known for his stellar selections then his Essential Mix is a superb trip featuring cuts from Jeff Mills, Toulouse Low Trax, Lord of the Isles, Angela, Mr Raoul K and many more.

Palms Trax Essential MIx is the second of 2018, with the one and only Carl Cox kicking off the series’ 25th year in style on 6th January. In December 2017, rising star Mall Grab also made his debut as part of the series
