Radio 1's Essential Mix @ 20: James Blake

Duration:
2 hours
First broadcast:
Saturday 17 September 2011

"Picking a favourite Essential Mix is impossible. It's like saying what's your favourite album! But in the end I went for the most relevant mix for now, from the winner of the 2013 Mercury Music Prize, James Blake. This is one of the stand out Essential Mixes for me over the past few years. Superb selction all the way through. It's interesting and varied and a real representation of his influences, which I think any good mix by an artist really should be". Benji B.
