In case you had any doubts that 2012 was shaping up to be great, BBC Radio 1 decided to prove it by starting this year’s Essential Mix series off  with a resounding bang. Can I express to you how excited I’ve been for this moment? Finally, UK Bass tunesmith and Night Slugs label co-founder James Connolly — aka L-Vis 1990 — has taken the decks on the “the world’s favorite mix show,” and the results are truly breathtaking: two hours of non-stop grooving that bobs and weaves from old skool Techno vibes to modern UK Funky to Bmore to Grime and everywhere in-between and back again. While tracks like Cajmere’s timeless “Percolator,” Patrice Bäumel’s strange, intriguing “Roar,” and L-Vis’ own unreleased “Our Groove” bring a nostalgic Techno punch, the true gems for trainspotters here are Kingdom’s “SFX” (out yesterday on dirtybird), Bok Bok’s “MJT”, Girl Unit’s “Club Rez” (both of which are forthcoming from Night Slugs), and the L-Vis and Simbad remix of L-Vis’ own “Tonight,” from his debut album.

This might be one of the best Essential Mixes in ages, folks. Check out the full tracklisting below. Also, if you don’t care for the interview and other Essential Mix trappings, L-Vis was good enough to post the raw mix on the Night Slugs site!
