Listen to Alix Perez’ BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix

alix-perez-essential-mix

Now this is how you’re supposed to do it. Alix Perez burst onto the scene as a drum & bass master, but has let his sound evolve into other forms of bass music, hip-hop, and much more. His Essential Mix? A wondrous combination of all of those sounds, from his genre-spanning sophomore album Chroma Chords to classic drum & bass from Dillinja, Ed Rush & Optical, and Adam F, to hip-hop from J Dilla, Flying Lotus, and Tyler, the Creator, to tracks from Jai Paul, Aphex Twin, TNGHT, Fela Kuti, Noisia, and others. A dope throwback to the “essential” mixes of old.
