BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix is celebrating its 25th year in 2018 and will kick off the celebration with one of the biggest names in electronic music this weekend. Carl Cox will step to the famed turntables for a special two-hour mix in the studio.
What to expect exactly from Cox is anybody’s guess, but he knows how to throw a party. The mix will happen at 4 a.m. local time on January 6. No word on who else will be tasked with providing essential mixes for 2018, but the selection of Carl Cox means we are off to a good start.
