“What I’d like for the listeners to gather from this Essential Mix is a closer look at all the musical soundscapes that inspire my own productions. As well as an intimate portrait of my roots stretching back to the early 90s when I began. Instead of playing all the newest unreleased hits, I’ve woven old and new music that I feel will grow on the listener the more they listen to it.” – Maceo Plex
Maceo Plex’s Essential Mix recently aired on BBC Radio 1, with the mix fully embracing the ethos surrounding the established BBC mix series. Maceo Plex displays an excellent sense of selection throughout the essential mix, dropping many releases from his label, Ellum, a handful of white labels, as well as synthetic techno anthems like Voiski’s Wax Fashion and Wasp Factory by Rex the Dog.
