Back in December, deadmau5 revealed that he would be holding down a residency at BBC Radio 1 in 2017. Now, the producer’s debuted his first mix for the residency, delivering a solid two-hour playlist that sports an eclectic selection of tunes.
Deadmau5’s latest mix is definitely an interesting one for the outspoken musician. While a number of house and techno cuts from Pryda, Lane 8, ATTLAS and the mau5 himself pop up across the two hour program, some unexpected offerings are included as well, including Boards Of Canada’s “Satellite Anthem Icarus”, Tycho’s “Epoch” and Jon Hopkins’ “Lost In Thought.” It’s a side of deadmau5 that we don’t often get to hear, and definitely makes for a compelling listen.
With a diverse array of genres represented and some skillful mixing, deadmau5’s first offering for his BBC Radio 1 residency is a strong start for the producer. Considering the quality of his inaugural broadcast, we can’t wait to hear what deadmau5 will cook up for his future mixes in the months to come.
