Steve Angello impresses with latest Radio 1 Residency

Steve Angello had arguably one of the best years in 2015. Seemingly going from strength to strength both as a solo artist and label leader, his return to the triumphant BBC Radio 1 Residency roster came as a satisfying relief for many. Coming off the back of his prolonged album release, the stir it caused has in turn has trickled into his 2 hour mix.

Playing the opening leg of the back-2-back set with Oliver Heldens two days ago, the SIZE Records head-honcho showed no sign of slowing down this year in 2016. Already impressing on Radio 1 earlier in January alongside the Daft Punk special, the 29-track mix extended his supremacy as a maestro and master of atmosphere and electronic sound.

Featuring a rich amount from his album ‘Wild Youth’, Steve Angello also enters a softer side, with the likes of Rufus, Lane 8 and Soulrack to name a few, all making the tracklist. Careful and methodical in his approach, the churning of dynamic synth’s and rotation of moods lead smoothly into the back end. With names such as Still Young and Corey James, as well as Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman, the injection of energy is neither a fluke or forced. Crafted into the overall atmosphere, the 2 hour mix is a credit to both his skill, technique and taste. Jammed packed full of exclusive content, it is fair to say topping Steve Angello’s form at the moment takes some doing!
