Listen to Mall Grab’s game-changing Essential Mix debut

When dance godfather Pete Tong labels you as one of the scene’s “unstoppable rising stars”, you know you’re on to a good thing. But that was the reception waiting for Newcastle export Mall Grab when he landed for his BBC Essential Mix debut over the weekend.

The now London-based producer delivered a two-hour mix crammed full of his signature lo-fi moves, with tracks from Luke Solomon, Locklead, Decka, and Henry Rodrick — along with plenty of his own edits.

The 23-year-old has had a packed year, with seemingly back-to-back shows across the globe, including a recent string of gigs here on home soil including Output Festival and Strawberry Fields. Next up he’ll be hitting up Let Them Eat Cake on New Year’s Day.

Something tells us 2018’s gonna be a big one for Jordan Alexander. Listen to the full Essential Mix below, and scope the tracklist below.
