Well it doesn’t get much more essential than this weeks’ episode of Pete Tong’s legendary radio show, BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix. Bringing in UK’s prodigy of bass to play a diverse and pounding set is my pick so far for Essential Mix of the year. Outlining the entire set before the show, Flux gives us his personal insights, ideas, and humor about building a mix for the biggest decks in the world. Ranging the spectrum of bass Flux pays tribute to the great classics of his time as well as gives us a glimpse into the future of dubstep. Dropping straight into Jahova by Rusko and never slowing down has myself dying to get a hold of his new album due out soon.

Essential Mix – Flux Pavilion (4/14/12)

Dillon Francis is already shitting out remixes from the upcoming debut album.
