UPDATE (10.3.2015): One of the bright spots heading into this weekend was knowing that Aussie superstar producer and former What So Not co-creater Flume would finally be bringing his talents to the worlds most prolific radio platform, Pete Tong's BBC 1 Essential Mix.
When news of Flume's featured guest mix broke last week, we gushed over the possibility of unreleased contents from a rumored sophomore album being placed throughout and our wish was granted just 10 mins in!
Flume opted to go into DJ mode for the 2-hour mix and piled together a collection of eclectic tunes from future bass, indie-electronic, and hip-hop origins to accompany the unreleased edits and full-bodied singles that bare his signature production prowess.
You can stream Flume's debut below and let's hope to high heavens an official album announcement is imminent! Enjoy

One of the longest running wishes amongst the dance music community is for Australian producer Flume to bring his eclectic prowess to the king of all running radio series, Pete Tong's infamous BBC 1 Essential Mix show.
Flume's exciting successes around his breakout, self-titled debut album in 2012 pushed future bass production to the forefront, carving its way into main stage appeal while leading the charge internationally for a whole new generation of Australian producers.
The scarcely spread remixes and recently released original "Some Minds" have caused an internet frenzy everytime! Whispers of late night studio sessions over the last year have fueled the anticipation of a sophomore album, but with nothing official coming from Flume's camp, the upcoming Essential Mix provides a perfect platform for unreleased content to finally see the light of day.
We highly suggest setting a reminder this very instant for Saturday, October 3rd with Flume going in the mix for 2 solid hours of what could potentially be a preview of a forthcoming album! Enjoy

Tiësto will always be one of the most influential and talked about DJs on the planet. Headlining countless music festivals in every single country, releasing thousands of mixes and having a few artist albums under his belt. For the first time in years, Tiesto has returned to Pete Tong's BBC Radio 1 program to lay down a brand new Essential Mix. The coveted 2 hour mix where an artist can step outside the box by unveiling unreleased material as seen by Nero, Eric Prydz and Skrillex or for an artist to show a completely different side, like Disclosure dropping an hour of straight hip-hop to start their mix last year. Steering almost entirely away from the expected progressive / electro house anthems, Tiesto showcases his newer side with an exciting blend of techno, deep house and future garage music; displaying some of the hottest tracks and the latest offerings from his Music Freedom label, like "Gecko" and even showcasing a fury of unreleased music.
