Steve Angello compiles a firey BBC Radio 1 mix
Swedish maestro Steve Angello returned to his BBC Radio 1 residency with music from across the wide electronic spectrum. After kick-starting the year with curating a new roster including Oliver Heldens and Nina Kraviz, as well as welcoming back Steve Angello among names such as George Fitzgerald, James Blake, Heidi, BBC Radio 1 remains a magnetic force within electronic dance music. Returning to the radio station this week, Angello opted to take listeners on a journey through dance music history, commenting:
We have some classics coming later on from the early 2000’s and onwards. I’m curious to see if there’s anything that you DIDN’T know that I’ve been involved with.
Along with some own classics from his older days alongside his former Swedish House Mafia Memebers such as “Get Dumb” or “For Sale”, Angello assembles a stunning 2 hour mix for his latest BBC Radio 1 Residency. Sticking with some eternal classics, the show consists of tracks from the likes of Eric Prydz, Claude VonStroke, Sebjak, Joris Voorn and a premiere of Corey James & Teamworx new collaboration. The mix opens up with M83’s devine tune “Solitude” and also features Angellos’s immortal “Teasing Mr. Charlie”. Overall, this gem-packed mix has the perfect set of tracks that will throw back any listener to the older days of electronic dance music, but still manages to contain the right amount of punch that would make anyone dance from start to finish.
