Now that 2017 is in full swing, BBC Radio 1’s new roster of mix residencies has finally begun. With a stacked lineup of DJs like Metrik, Eats Everything and Kölsch, the new season of Radio 1 was only made more exciting by the December addition of Deadmau5. Now, just a day after his 36th birthday, the man himself has debuted his very first mix for the BBC family to enjoy.
With only one of his own songs, besides a “Strobe” remix from Com Truise, the two-hour mix stands as a window into Deadmau5’s biggest inspirations and personal favorites in the techno and house worlds. From Boards of Canada and Maceo Plex to Tycho, Pryda and mau5trap label mate ATTLAS, the full scope of his diverse musical taste is explored.
