You have probably heard of Coldcut, the British dance/hip hop duo. You probably like them.
In England, they have this great thing called the BBC, which owns radio and TV and internet outlets. Though this may be a scary example of government control of the media, they tend to do an excellent job with music programming.
BBC Radio 1 has a show called Essential Mix that is basically a late-night mix from a famous DJ or group broadcast over the air. Think DJ Shadow or RJD2 or Diplo doing a live concert set on the radio and that’s about it.
Cold Cut has an excellent version of this Essential Mix, two hours of beautiful hip hop samples and dance beats.
