Listen to Bonobo's Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1

Longtime Ninja Tune affiliate Bonobo has delivered the latest Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1. First aired over the weekend, the two-hour affair—which features tracks from Martyn, Machine Drum, Maya Jane Coles, Mano Le Tough, Dark Sky, Throwing Snow, Dauwd, and Taylor McFerrin, alongside a number of Bonobo's own productions—is now available to hear in full. After a brief introduction which finds Bonobo quickly covering the trajectory of his career and the ways his live and DJ sets inform each other, the NYC-based producer launches into his mix with a series of dancefloor-friendly tracks steeped in the type of moody, blues-tinged vibes Bonobo has built his reputation on over the years.

The man's complete Essential Mix can be streamed in full via BBC Radio 1, here, or streamed and downloaded via the player below, courtesy of EverybodyWantsToBeTheDJ. (via FACT)
