Erol Alkan – 6 Mix 2015-02-13

“Erol Alkan returns to the 6 Mix for his first show of 2015. His last show, back in November, saw him continuing on 6 Music with two hours of music from his DJ travels.
Erol has been at the centre of UK electronic music and clubbing since 1997 when he launched his iconic Trash club night in London which helped give rise to electroclash and acts such as Yeah Yeah Yeahs, LCD Soundsystem and Klaxons. As a producer he pioneered the mashup sound at the turn of the Millennium and has worked with producers like Boys Noize and Richard Norris, as Beyond the Wizard’s Sleeve, to create some of the biggest underground anthems. Additionally, he has remixed Daft Punk, MGMT, Justice and most recently the Manic Street Preachers. He also recently released the next edition of the FabricLive mix series. And it doesn’t end there – as an A&R he’s built up his label Phantasy as one of the hubs of exciting, emerging UK talent.
This all brings us to the fourth string to Erol’s dance music bow – radio. He’s been part of the 6 Mix for over five years now, pushing the sounds at the cutting edge of club culture, while giving nods to some of those who have helped shape the scene.”

Adrian Sherwood & Pinch – 6 Mix 2015-02-06

Wicked selection from these guys!!

“Sonic pioneers Adrian Sherwood & Pinch take over the 6 Music airwaves for a two hour journey in to dub and beyond, following their new collaborative album.
The new release, Late Night Endless, is the result of a two-year partnership between the two producers. Sherwood has graced the 6 Mix decks before and is known for his pioneering label On-U Sound. Primarily associated with the sound of dub, On-U Sound’s heritage is far broader, with many of its artists having backgrounds in punk & post-punk, industrial, hip-hop and funk. The other half of the collaboration is Pinch, real name Rob Ellis, who was an instrumental figure in the early dubstep scene and still remains one of the most prominent figures. The duo released their first two singles in 2013, which has paved the way for a full album.
In this programme, the duo take over the 6 Music airwaves for a two hour journey in to dub and beyond.”

Eats Everything – 6 Mix 2015-01-30

“Bristol-based beat maker Eats Everything takes over the 6 Mix for a tasty two hours of musical influences, new and old.
Eats Everything, aka Dan Pearce, arrived on the scene in 2011 with the aptly named track Entrance Song. From there he has had a sharp up-ward trajectory, winning a whole host of awards – from Best British DJ to being named in Resident Advisor’s Top 100 DJs poll. Aside from his own productions, Dan has remixed the likes of Adam F, X-Press 2, Four Tet and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs.
In this programme, Eats Everything takes to the 6 Mix decks for two hours of selections that you’ll definitely want second helpings of!”

DJ Zinc – 6 Mix 2015-01-24

“DJ Zinc plays two hours of musical influences, new and old.
Zinc’s career has spanned many genres and he’s still going strong today. He was one of jungle’s biggest stars, following the release of the classic track Super Sharp Shooter, which is 20 years old this year. He then moved to dominate the drum and bass scene, DJing and producing alongside DJ Hype and Pascal as True Playaz.
After setting up his own label Bingo Beats, he started to diversify into UK garage and created seminal tracks such as 2000’s 138 Trek. His latest releases under the ‘Structures’ series take him in to the bass, break beat and house worlds.
In this programme, DJ Zinc takes over the 6 Music airwaves for two hours of sublime selections – from house to jungle to rave – spanning his 25 year career. Expect music from the likes of A Guy Called Gerald, Photek, Rhythim is Rhythim and Paul Woolford.”

Caribou – 6 Mix 2015-01-16

“Caribou, aka producer Dan Snaith, takes to the 6 Mix decks for two hours of musical inspirations, old and new.
The Canadian producer’s fourth album Our Love featured at number 6 in 6 Music’s Albums of the Year list at the end of 2014 and has had huge support across the network from the likes of Lauren Laverne, Nemone and Gilles Peterson.
In this programme, Caribou presents an eclectic selection of tunes, to give you an idea of one of his DJ sets – with music from Milton Nascimento, DJ Koze, Carl Craig and a brand new track under his Daphni moniker.”

Groove Armada – 6 Mix 2015-01-09

“6 Mix Residents, Groove Armada, return to the 6 Music decks for two hours of funk-fuelled house and disco.
Ever since the brass melody of ‘At The River’ melted our hearts in 1997, we’ve been captivated by Groove Armada’s consistently superb productions and incredible live shows. Seven studio albums later, a Grammy nomination for ‘Superstylin” and with a plethora of hits such as ‘I See You Baby’, Andy Cato and Tom Findlay still sit at the top of British electronic music.
After establishing Lovebox as one of the most eclectic and high quality line-ups in the increasingly competitive festival circuit, the pair have moved away from the event and are now concentrating on making some of the best underground house and techno tracks on forward thinking labels such as Hot Creations, Get Physical, Danseclub, Om & Moda Black.
As existing 6 Mix Residents alongside Goldie, Erol Alkan, Derrick May, Andrew Weatherall, Rob da Bank, DJ Yoda and Jamie xx, Groove Armada began their foray on the 6 Music airwaves by presenting the 6 Mix’s special to mark the 10th Anniversary of the station back in 2012. Since then, they’ve demonstrated their electric range of influences from funk, soul and disco classics all the way through to some of the most exciting up-and-coming producers making their mark in the game today.”

Lamb – 6 Mix 2014-12-26

“Stalwarts of the UK electronic scene, Lamb, take over the 6 Mix for two hours of influences and current favourites.
Lou Rhodes and Andy Barlow released their eponymous debut LP in 1996 which featured the genre defining tracks Górecki and Trans Fatty Acid. Three albums later, in 2004, the band went on a hiatus and focussed on solo projects, with Lou’s debut solo album, Beloved One, receiving a Mercury Prize nomination.
Fast-forward to 2014 and the duo are back writing and producing together and this year’s LP Backspace Unwind as a result, which they came in to perform for 6 Music back in September.
In this programme, Lamb take control of the 6 Music airwaves with a selection of musical influences and current favourites with music from Herbie Hancock to Jai Paul via Aphex Twin and Jon Hopkins.”

X-Press 2 – 6 Mix 2014-12-19

“Renowned UK house duo X-Press 2 return to the 6 Mix for two hours of musical inspirations and current favourites.
Rocky and Diesel first rose to underground prominence in 1993, with their tracks Muzik Xpress and London Xpress; and later enjoyed mainstream success with their Number 2 smash Lazy, which featured David Byrne from Talking Heads. The duo returned to the studio and released their highly anticipated third album, The House Of X-Press 2 in 2012.
Even though they have been at the forefront of UK house for over 20 years there’s certainly no slowing down for the pair who spent the summer touring here and abroad. Aside from their 6 Mix shows the duo also played to a packed crowd at the 6 Music Festival back in March. Here in their fourth show of 2014, Rocky and Diesel play material that has inspired their productions, alongside some new dancefloor favourites.”

Jamie xx – 6 Mix 2014-12-12

“Jamie xx returns to 6 Music for the third show in his 6 Mix residency, reflecting the most exciting music emerging from clubs across the world.
Since his last 6 Mix back in the summer, Jamie has been busy touring, both with The xx and as a DJ. Aside from his numerous live dates, he has been working on The xx’s third album and has recently created some music for a short film by Sofia Mattioli, alongside other producers such as Koreless and Four Tet.
Ever since bursting onto the UK music scene with his band, The xx, Jamie xx has been one of the most in demand and talked about artists around. Along with Romy Croft and Oliver Sim, he won the 2010 Mercury Music Prize, and continues to win plaudits from pretty much everyone who hears his music.
Having gone to the same South London school as Four Tet, Hot Chip and Burial, on his own he’s re-worked Gil Scott-Heron’s final album, and released original productions on Scottish label Numbers – who’ve also provided a platform for Rustie, SBTRKT and Deadboy. He’s been at the forefront of UK Bass which has found its way into mainstream tracks and helped pave the way for the resurgence of Garage.
Hailed by Thom Yorke and with everything he does blogged about across the world, Jamie is more than a welcome addition to the 6 Mix Residents roster alongside Goldie, Erol Alkan, Derrick May, Rob da Bank, Andrew Weatherall, DJ Yoda and Groove Armada. In this third resident show for 6 Music, Jamie will be playing two hours hand-picked tracks, new and old.”

Four Tet – 6 Mix 2014-12-05

“Four Tet, aka Kieran Hebden, returns to the 6 Mix for two hours of sublime selections.
Born in London, Kieran Hebden formed the band Fridge, whilst at school, with friends Adem Ilhan and Sam Jeffers. The trio released their first album in 1997 on Output Recordings. The following year, Hebden started to release under the Four Tet moniker and last year saw his 7th full length Four Tet album, Beautiful Rewind, released on his own Text Records imprint.
Aside from his solo works, he has collaborated with a whole host of musicians and producers, noticeably with the late jazz drummer Steve Reid, Burial and Thom Yorke and has remixed a whole host of artists such as The xx, Bloc Party, Beth Orton, Battles and Radiohead.
This year has seen collaborations with Martyn, Terror Danjah and most recently, a film composition for a film project by Sofia Mattioli, alongside 6 Mix resident Jamie xx and Koreless.
In this programme Four Tet takes over the 6 Mix for 120 minutes, playing some rare gems and new favourites.”

Slam – 6 Mix 2014-11-28

“The Glaswegian techno duo, Slam, take over the 6 Mix for two hours of musical influences, new and old.
Slam, aka Stuart McMillan & Orde Meikle, have had a big year – they recently released their fifth album ‘Reverse Proceed’, which was the pair’s first studio album in over 7 years. The project saw them delving in to their 22 years of experience and past music for inspiration. In this show, the two producers play two hours of music which has inspired their recent release and some new dance-floor favourites.”

Kindness was last on the station when he did a session for Lauren Laverne in October, around the release of his new album Otherness, and tonight he returns to the 6 Music airwaves for an eclectic selection of music that inspired that release.

Horse Meat Disco – 6 Mix 2014-11-14

“London DJ foursome Horse Meat Disco bring soul, disco and Italo to the 6 Mix for a Friday night party.
Since 2003 James Hillard, Luke Howard, Severino and Jim Stanton, have been crate-digging and DJing together as Horse Meat Disco. Their parties are well known for both their atmosphere and eclectic selections, with the the group’s musical tastes ranging from house to gospel and classic disco to more cosmic sounds. They hold club residencies in New York, London and Berlin and have put out a series if compilations through the Strut label of some of their favourite club classics and rarities.
In this show, the guys take to the 6 Mix decks for two hours of music to keep you moving on a Friday night: James Hillard provides the first 30 minutes playing some soul and rare-groove, Severino and Jim Stanton take over for the middle hour with some newer, clubbier sounds and then Luke Howard wraps up proceedings and slows things down for the final half hour.”

Erol Alkan – 6 Mix 2014-11-07

“Erol Alkan returns to the 6 Mix for his final show of 2014. His last show, back in August, saw him continuing on 6 Music in a newly tweaked 6 Mix Residents line up, alongside Goldie, Derrick May, Groove Armada, Andrew Weatherall, Jamie xx, Rob da Bank and DJ Yoda.
Erol has been at the centre of UK electronic music and clubbing since 1997 when he launched his iconic Trash club night in London which helped give rise to electroclash and acts such as Yeah Yeah Yeahs, LCD Soundsystem and Klaxons. As a producer he pioneered the mashup sound at the turn of the Millennium and has worked with producers like Boys Noize and Richard Norris (to form Beyond the Wizard Sleeve) to create some of the biggest underground anthems; all whilst remixing Daft Punk, MGMT, Justice and most recently the Manic Street Preachers. He also recently released the next edition of the FabricLive mix series.
And it doesn’t end there – as an A&R he’s built up his label Phantasy as one of the hubs of exciting, emerging UK talent.
This all brings us to the fourth string to Erol’s dance music bow – radio. He’s been part of the 6 Mix for over five years now, pushing the sounds at the cutting edge of club culture, while giving nods to some of those who have helped shape the scene like Green Velvet/Cajmere, his good friends the Dewaele brothers who are perhaps better known as 2ManyDJs and Soulwax, as well as fellow resident Derrick May.”
