Joker – BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix

Really hot thumbnail for this article post!

As if Joker hadn't done enough to please me in the past few months, with an album on 4AD that's grimy perfection with a pop twist and an amazing show in New York City at Terminal 5, he just had to go and outdo himself with a BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix last night. Joker's bass-laden tunes will take you on a journey through every solar system in a way that no one else can; he's a unique producer with a really distinct sound that he accurately describes as "space boy goon music," a glorious blend of heavy old-school Bristol bass and something new and different.

This mix mostly casts his own tracks, many of which appear on The Vision, in a new light, but also interweaves them with sinister tunes from contemporaries like Benga, Gemmy, Skream, TC and Redlight. I would gladly give up my everyday life to translocate to Joker's "Purple City".  Play this shit loud and get your subwoofers ready; I think mine might explode before the end of the night. Follow @Joker on Twitter for your daily dose. The tracklist can be found at BBC Radio 1's website.

Welcome to the void.
