Following previous entries from Steffi and Huxley, Jon Hopkins has delivered the latest BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix. First aired over the weekend, the two-hour session includes an unreleased track from Hopkins himself—entitled "Interlude"—and finds him referencing a similar sonic palette to his own in selections from Border Community fixtures James Holden, Wesley Matsell, and Luke Abbott. Also featured throughout the recording are more dancefloor-centric cuts from the likes of Clark, Untold, Skudge, and Boddika & Joy Orbison. "It feels amazing to join a line up that has included so many people whose music I admire," Hopkins says. "I put a lot of work into this, trying to showcase the tracks that have influenced my recent album and live shows, and trying to build a musical structure and journey over the two hours."

Available to stream here courtesy of BBC, the mix's complete tracklist can be found below, along with a fresh batch of international tour dates.
