Listen: Flux Pavilion’s thumping Diplo & Friends mix

“I dunno if you know about this guy but Flux Pavilion, he’s kind of a big deal,” Diplo introduced at the beginning his latest Diplo & Friends radio show . The Mad Decent boss has been at the BBC Radio 1 desk for bang on a year now, bringing big names like Boys Noize, Avicii, Brodinski, Four Tet and Dillon Francis on board to deliver hour-long mixes, broadcast on the legendary station late on Sunday nights. This week, the friend on mixing duties was the Major Lazer crew’s Jah No Partial collaborator, Flux Pavilion.

“I worked with him, he’s a cool guy,” Diplo continued. “I even worked out of his little dormitory studio apartment two years ago, I don’t even know where it was, somewhere in far, far North England. It was so nasty up there, there were like rats riding bicycles around the neighbourhood. I don’t think they’ve had sunshine for two centuries, it was just a giant grey cloud over this place.” Diplo’s intro aside, Flux’s mix didn’t waste any time kicking into gear: over the course of the hour, the bass head crammed in cuts from the likes of Major Lazer, Skream, Cookie Monsta and Dillon Francis, alongside plenty of his own material.

“His label Circus Records is legendary in the bass, the dubstep, the drumstep scene,” Diplo’s humorous spiel went on. “He’s toured everywhere, he’s been to more places in America than I have and you know what, I’m from America. It’s a big country.” Get stuck into the mix and tracklist below. Hint: there’s a download button, too.
