Flashback to 2013, the 12 months that Hot Since 82 would make his BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix debut. Pete Tong would go on to share the home music tastemaker’s two-hour effort over the BBC Radio 1 airwaves, to spotlight Hot Since 82 as a standout digital act. A benchmark within the budding profession of any aspiring artist, a BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix conveys a transparent message: The producer who lands one has what it takes to proceed to rise within the intensely aggressive fashionable music market.
That was then for Hot Since 82, who now returns to BBC Radio 1 to curate one other Essential Mix for the reputed radio station. Hot Since 82’s 2019 Essential Mix expounds upon the producer’s refined underground sound, to package deal productions hailing from revered labels like Cocoon Records, Defected Records, and Proton into an undulating two-hours of easy-flowing home music.
