Very early this morning, David Guetta took over BBC Radio 1 during a one-of-a-kind two hour essential mix. Unlike most of his previous mixes, Guetta chose to direct his attention into the past, calling it his “Special Influences” essential mix, using house songs that have served as foundations for modern dance music to build off of. All of the tracks, bar four, were originally released in the nineties and late eighties. Featuring work from artists like Liberty City, Masters At Work, and Carl Craig, this mix is sure to bring nostalgia to the longstanding electronic fans among us.
