Mondays may bring us back to the office, but also bring us quality music from the weekend’s action throughout the world.

This week’s Music Monday selection comes courtesy of this past Friday’s Essential Mix action. Featured on the esteemed BBC Radio 1 show hosted by Pete Tong were two live recordings from Manchester’s Parklife festival held earlier this month on June 11th and 12th.

The first hour is a no-holds-barred Chemical Brothers performance featuring hits such as “Chemical Beats” and “Swoon,” while the second part is a special b2b set by Jackmaster and Armand van Helden. This is the first Essential Mix by The Chemical Brothers since 1995, a twenty-one year wait.

Listen to the latest Essential Mix directly via the BBC Radio 1 Player, or via SoundCloud below.
