Parisian future house superstar Martin Bresso, more commonly known as Tchami, made his debut last night on BBC Radio 1 with an exceptional Essential Mix. Listeners were treated to a 2 hour world-class mix of some of the freshest tracks house music has to offer.
Tchami is best known for his future house anthem ‘After Life’ which was released in 2015 and went viral almost instantly worldwide. At the time, the track was part of revolutionizing the house scene, when future house was put on the world stage and immediately became hugely popular. During this time, this shift in popular house music influenced many of those within the scene, with some of the most well-known producers trying to emulate the style which was clearly a hit with fans. Since this however, Tchami has further developed his style, leaning towards an even deeper and heavier style of house which is strongly evident during this mix, and is illustrated in his recent releases.
Filled with energy from the beginning, the Essential Mix kicks off with ‘Utopia’, a brand new track from up-and-coming producer Dombresky. This sets the tone of the mix, which is littered with house bangers throughout, with a constant flow of music from both established artists and new talent. The mix continues with Tchami featuring one of his own tracks, ‘SIAW’, released for free download in August, a massive hard hitting house track which instantly transports the listener, painting the picture of a dark warehouse rave. The mix also revisits some of Tchami’s 2015 hits with both ‘Missing You’ and the Alesia Edit of ‘After Life’ making an appearance.
This world-class Essential Mix from Tchami certainly emphasizes how much of a trend-setter he is in the house scene, and cements his position as one of the most influential producers in the whole of the electronic music industry.
