Hear Tchami make his long-awaited Essential Mix debut

It’s been a long time coming, but this weekend Tchami finally stepped up for his first ever BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix.

Over his two hours in the hot seat, the Parisian future house producer worked in a number of his own tracks – like his 2014 hit Untrue and this year’s SIAW – as well as classic cuts like James Brown’s Mind Power and Mr Oizo’s Flat Beat. Tchami also tipped his hat to his contemporary house peers: Duke Dumont, Disclosure and Dusky all feature.

Also in the setlist is Prophecy, Tchami’s collaboration with mystery producer Malaa, who is signed to the Frenchman’s new imprint Confession.

2016 has also seen Essential Mixes from the likes of The AvalanchesBlond:ish and Baauer. In March Innervisions heroes Ame and Dixon paired up for a very special back-to-back mix in March as part of Radio 1’s ‘X’ series, which has previously seen Jamie xx share the booth with Four Tet and Eric Prydz go back-to-back with his protégé Jeremy Olander.
