To kick of November’s BBC Radio 1 Essential Mixes, Pete Tong roped in Wilkinson to drop a special two-hour romp on the masses, in support of his recently-released Lazers Not Included. We’ve tried to tell you that this guy was a problem, but we’d rather show you. Wilkinson takes us on a serious drum & bass-driven excursion, carefully mixing up recent tunes alongside some certified dnb anthems (Logistics‘ “Together” and Marky & XRS’ “LK” immediately come to mind), while he even deviates from the 170BPM-ish at times. Seeing as his progression has found him encapsulating the bass music spectrum, it was necessary. Take two hours and truly recognize why DAD has him shining bright in our books with this stellar mix.
