Skrillex’s BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix is the Most Played Show in the History of Radio 1

SKRILLEX-hands

Just think about that for a minute: Skrillex, a guy that many feel has been the bane of dance music, having the most played show in the 46-year history of BBC Radio 1. It sounds crazy, but it’s true, confirmed by OWSLA themselves:

 

We knew the furor over the mix was intense, but who expected this kind of play. Hopefully you’ve found a way to listen to the mix, considering that it’s not been available to stream on Radio 1′s site since a week after it dropped. It’s, well, essential. We’re going to have to assume that Radio 1 already has it on their shortlist for Essential Mix of the Year, right?

THE BEST MIXES OF 2013, SO FAR
