Radio Show Details


The Essential Mix is a weekly radio show broadcast on Radio 1 Essential Mix and features all styles of electronic dance music. Originally the brainchild of Eddie Gordon, the producer of the show from the very first broadcast in 1993 to 2001. After receiving weekly mix shows from DJs Tony Humphries and Frankie Knuckles on 2 hour cassettes from New York's Hot 97 and KISS 100 respectively in the early 90s Eddie felt that a BBC Radio 1 weekly show with DJs of different styles of music would offer more variety and the chance for the ever-burgeoning UK dance music scene to flourish.

He further encouraged the DJs he scheduled to flex their musical knowledge muscles by pushing the fact that the DJs were not strictly playing to a dance floor but to people listening in their homes all over the world. Hence the need for a straight out "4 to the floor" mix for 2 hours was not totally necessary and the DJs could include more eclectic music. DJ Paul Oakenfold particularly benefited from this direction prompted by Eddie Gordon to create the now famous Goa Mix which was not only voted the best Essential Mix ever but also won a Silver Award in the Specialist Music Programme category at the 1997 Sony Radio Awards. The previous year, 1996, the Essential Mix Show picked up the award of Radio Show Of The Year from Muzik Magazine. Later on it was David Holmes who created another 2 legendary hours in the history of the Essential Mix: His set on 15 June 1997 – a surprising journey from Nancy Wilson to Jimi Hendrix – redefined the DJ as a collector of musical history.

 
The show has been hosted since its conception in 1993 by DJ Pete Tong who was also the first performer, broadcast on 30 October 1993. Every Friday late night/Saturday morning a two hour programme is broadcast, usually between the hours of 3am and 5am UK-time (the programme was previously broadcast between Saturday late night/Sunday morning 1am and 3am, and before that, between 2am and 4am and originally midnight and 2am). The standard format of the show is an uninterrupted guest mix of two hours provided by an invited DJ, group or producer, introduced by Tong.

The mix is usually studio recorded in advance. Another Eddie Gordon initiative was to take the show on the road with live broadcasts from clubs or festivals, particularly during the Summer months (Northern Hemisphere) and at the New Year's Eve end of the calendar months. The live broadcasts started from within the UK and soon broadened out as live from Ibiza, North America, Australia, South Africa, Germany, Hawaii and other destinations in Europe including Rome in Italy. The BBC Radio 1 - One World Millennium celebration starting with DJ Carl Cox from Bondi Beach in Sydney Australia (more Eddie Gordon origination) before heading to Cape Town South Africa with DJ Danny Rampling prior to broadcasting DJ Dave Pearce from Glasgow, Scotland, DJ Pete Tong from Liverpool, UK then DJ Junior Vasquez from New York, USA before closing with DJ Carl Cox who had flown backwards across the dateline to complete a DJ World first with two Millennium gigs by broadcasting from Honolulu, Hawaii.


The forerunner to this mammoth New Year's Eve Essential Mix was the transatlantic three cities broadcast on the New Year's Eve of 1997 into 1998 with simultaneous broadcasts from three clubs directly to each dance floor with DJ Pete Tong at the Ministry Of Sound, London, UK, DJ Todd Terry at the Nynex Arena in Manchester, UK and finishing with DJ Eddie Baez at the Tunnel venue in Manhattan, New York, USA. Produced by Eddie Gordon who originated the idea of linking the three venues via ISDN broadcast.

The broadcasts from Ibiza have taken place every summer since the first Essential Mix live broadcast from Amnesia. The first ever Essential Mix from Ibiza came in the summer of 1995 Ibiza as a pre-recorded broadcast of Nicky Holloway playing live at Ku on 2 July 1995.
