Dusky - Essential Mix

Alfie Granger-Howell and Nick Harriman, better known together as Dusky, last night had their essential mix premiered on Pete Tong's show, which was packed full of deep groovy House, with clear Garage influences throughout, and a couple of exclusives in there for good measure. One of my favourite production outfits in the world right now, and this is a wonderful showcase of what they're all about.

Flux Pavilion - Radio 1 Essential Mix

Dubstep producer/DJ Flux Pavilion featured on Pete Tong's Radio 1 Essential Mix show this weekend, with a stunning two hour mix, which includes many tracks that have influenced him over the past few years and lots of his own productions.

Derrick Carter - Essential Mix

A couple of days ago legendary Chicago House producer/DJ Derrick Carter let loose a two hour mix of jacking house, whilst giving frequent nods to old school Disco, Soul and Jazz. I genuinely believe this could be my new favourite Essential Mix of all-time. Listen and download before, then make your own mind up. Genius.

Finally, I got round to listening to Riva Starr’s Essential Mix, and it didn’t disappoint.

Made To Play has a strange obsession with Trumpets and that is very evident in this mix; however it works, as always.

Download the mix HERE and check the tracklist HERE.
