James Blake Essential Mix

After Jamie xx‘s appearance on Radio 1’s Essential Mix a few weeks ago it is obvious that the doors have now opened for a new kind of dance music DJ to have their spotlight on the legendary show. James Blake was scheduled to appear on the show way back in May but that was mysteriously postponed until this morning when his 2 hour Essential Mix finally aired.

Over the two hour Essential Mix, James drops a load of his own music, as well as tracks from Salem, Drake, Africa Hitech and Stevie Wonder. There’s everything from classical music through to hip-hop, dubstep to soul, in what must be one of the most eclectic selections in months.
