The once mysterious ZHU continues to keep things fresh with his first ever true mix, a very special AfterHours Mix for BBC Radio 1 for taste maker Pete Tong. The is nothing close to normal, chalked full of exclusive unreleased songs, edits and bootlegs, but should we have expected anything less from him?
From doing an amazing cover remix of T Pain's older hit single "Bartender" to his flip of The Weeknd's "Often," not to mention his epic Halloween friendly remix of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" that he debuted in his live shows last year, these tracks only scratch the surface of this truly epic mix. He has not released a track-list for this incredible mix, so you will have to listen to the full thing to hear what other surprises are in store. Listen to the entire mix below. Enjoy!

Kaytranada continues to establish himself as one of the leading voices in the downtempo and hip-hop inspired electronic productions that has influenced a sea of producers. The Montreal based producer recently announced a residency on BBC Radio 1 for 2015 where he will provide a weekly hour long mix; and today we have the first episode of the exciting new series.
The mix is a full hour of "beats, edits, and jams" with tracks from himself and a bunch of friends with some exclusive gems sprinkled in the mix.
The exact details are still be unveiled, but BBC Radio 1 DJ Pete Tong has announced that Daft Punk will be doing something this Friday May 10th at 9pm. Since they did an essential mix back in 97′ there is definite chance for a followup.
We might potentially hear some new tracks off the upcoming album Random Access Memories as we creep on the released date on May 21. This is speculation based off of Pete Tong’s post of course. We will post updates here.
2:15pm UPDATE: We now have news that this Friday Pete Tong will be airing the first audio interview with the duo in 6 years that was recorded at this year’s Coachella. Since it is getting broadcasted via BBC Radio 1 we can hope for a clip of another new track off Random Access Memories. Based on them doing one in the past, an Essential Mix is defintely not unrealistic in the future.
BONUS: As a bonus we have included their 1997 BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix featuring 2 hours of some of their best classic originals, remixes and favorite tracks.
