Essential Mix - Art Department
Having the opportunity to record an essential mix is a massive deal for us, for any dj it's about as big of an opportunity as they come to be creative with your art and to reach so many people at once. the project wasn't taken lightly at all as it can be quite a task to put something like this together. you're considering the fans you already have, the people who don't know your work, trying to convey everything you want to say within the allotted 2 hours and with 30 of the 10,000 songs you have to chose from, as well as building trust with the listener early on so that you have more freedom with your programming as the mix continues. We wanted to make it as special and interesting as possible, and keep a classic vibe about it so that people will hopefully want to listen to it for years to come, same as we have with the likes of Blackstrobe's Essential mix from 2004. The mix is filled with current and classic music from artists we love and close friends ranging from deep & hypnotic grooves to vocal house records, to electronica and back, with loads of edits made just for this mix.
