The man that hath no music in himself, Nor is not moved with the concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils.

Essential Mix

I personally love driving, so when I find a concert set available for download, I tend to drive for hours just to listen to the show and jam out. One of the best places to find larger tracks and bigger sets for your music library is the Essential Mix on Radio 1. The Essential Mix is a show created by BBC Radio 1 in the '90's to showcase sets by electronic and alternative artists. It is currently hosted by the Legendary Pete Tong, and has had guests like Deadmau5, Daft Punk, Jaris Voorn, Justice, Pendulum, Wolfgang Gartner, Kaskade, Tiesto and many more. These typically 1 to 2 hour sets given to BBC1 by the artist are a look into the production of each artist when they're at a live show, or if you just want to hear a mix of great songs played by a great DJ or artist. So here we go, a short sampling of the great mixes out there from BBC Radio 1 with Pete Tong.
