The Mercury Prize nominee crafts a personal mix for BBC’s Essential Mix series.
Jon Hopkins is the latest artist to deliver an Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1.
The two-hour long selection sees the producer take a personal approach, with music that has influenced his recent work and live shows:
It feels amazing to join a line up that has included so many people whose music I admire. I put a lot of work into this, trying to showcase the tracks that have influenced my recent album and live shows, and trying to build a musical structure and journey over the two hours. I really hope everyone enjoys it.
Hopkins’ mix includes an unreleased song by the man himself alongside music from Recondite, Untold, Dan Deacon, Skudge, Boddika and more.
