Listen to every Essential Mix from 2016

On December 23, Midland received the honor of Essential Mix of the Year for his thoughtful contribution to BBC Radio 1’s series in February. While Midland’s mix was the best of the best, it’s important to note that 2016 was a remarkably good year for Pete Tong’s weekly broadcast. Over the past year, the Essential Mix has documented some of electronic music’s most momentous occasions. From Carl Cox‘s iconic final residency set at Space Ibiza, to Justice’s long-awaited return to the program, the Essential Mix guided listeners of widely diverse persuasions through the year’s best musical selections.  Listen to all 51 episodes from 2016 below, in chronological order.
