“When I was asked to do this Essential Mix I thought it might be something special to compile a selection of tracks from my label Cocoon Recordings. You’ll hear old stuff, current releases and some unreleased music which will be out soon.” – Sven Vath
Essential mixes for BBC are a milestone achievement in this industry, and are treated with the upmost respect. This past Fourth of July weekend, Sven Vath took to the BBC Radio 1 airwaves to deliver an essential mix encompassing the vast catalog of his label, Cocoon Recordings.
For the Cocoon edition of his Essential Mix, Papa Sven broke out tracks from artists such as Sascha Dive, Uner, Luca Ballerini, Daniel Stefanik, and even Boys Noize. The two hour essential mix is a complete testament to both Sven Vath and his beloved Cocoon Recordings, and needless to say is a musical journey that is well worth your complete and undivided attention. Techno and house at it’s absolute finest from one of the legends.
Various uploads of Sven Vath’s Essential Mix have started to surface, and can also be heard directly on the BBC Website until early August.
