Stream: Jamie XX's Radio 1 Essentials Mix

photographer Bryan Derballa

We're at our desks, juggling this and that, and not wholly able to enter into the focused two-hour stationary bike session* necessary to properly digest Jamie XX's Radio 1 Essentials Mix. But we can say this: After the little intro interview Jamie starts with a Gil Scott-Heron a cappella cut, there's a surprisingly amazing XX/Deadmau5 blend like two-thirds of the way through, and the track 116 minutes in is a new Jamie XX ode-to-mushrooms rework of Radiohead's “Bloom." Just skipping around, clicking aimlessly across the mix, we've yet to poke somewhere and not be floored.
