2000 & One

Happy Monday one and all - hope you had a great weekend! So Monday's for me at Radio 1 HQ is a real organising day. I book guests and mixes for the shows I work on, we do the music reporting from the previous week, I listen to new tracks and start to think about what music to include in this week's programmes - lots of 'housekeeping' which is a nice start to the week.

It feels like there is loads of great music around right now, I put 4 new albums on my MP3 player last night to have a listen to this week to see what tracks are right for my shows - Danny Byrd, Maddslinky, Sh*t Robot & Gold Panda. But there are loads of really good singles & EP's around too. I often find that at this time of year - we've got over the summer madness and people have got back down to work in the studio, providing us all with brand new beats!

Also out this week is the much hyped Magnetic Man album which is brilliant. And of course they were in session last week for BBC Radio 1 & 1Xtra, it was incredible with a string section complimenting amazing vocals from the likes of Katy B & Ms Dynamite. Check the videos of the 3 main singles 'I Need Air', 'Perfect Stranger' and 'Fire'.

On Pete's show on Friday we had 24 Hour Party People with Magnetic Man - it sounded a bit like this.

Or you can listen to the whole showand check the tracklist here.

So coming up this week on the shows I look after:

:: On Annie Nightingale we have a guest mix from Count & Sinden

:: On Annie Mac we have Mash Hits from Cassius and a mini mix from Starsmith

:: And on Pete Tong we have 24 Hour Party People with Joey Negro/Akabu & 15 Minutes Of Fame with 2000 & One (pictured above).
Have a great week!
