While preparing to clean my filthy little room I thought, “I wonder what’s going on with Radio 1’s Essential Mix?” So I hopped over to their site to see who was in control this week. The man’s name is Shadow Child. He sounded familiar, but I wasn’t sure why. Host Pete Tong gave me the low down, and right as the mix began I knew, THIS was a journey I wanted to go on.
I know there’s a lot to Simon Neale aka Dave Spoon aka Revivalist aka Shadow Child, and I will take more time to learn and listen before going deeper. Really, I enjoy letting the music take the lead and explain what needs to be explained. So sit back, and take this in with me.
* Love Radio 1’s idea to have visuals accompany the mix, hope this continues!
