On Saturday November 16, The Warehouse Project in Manchester will be celebrating 20 years of BBC Radio 1's Essential Mix. The Essential Mix has been hosted by Pete Tong since its inception back in 1993 and being invited to perform a two hour mix in the late hours of Friday night / Saturday morning has become one of the defining moments in any DJ's career.
On the night Pete leads proceedings playing back to back with Eats Everything, then he’s joined by Sasha (the only artist to have achieved Essential Mix Of The Year twice), Booka Shade, who will be playing live, then a special series of back to backs with Steve Lawler b2b with Hot Since 82, James Zabiela b2b with Paul Woolford, Skream b2b with Jackmaster, Derrick Carter b2b with Krysko and Bondax b2b with Monki. Other DJs on the night include Circus Recording’s Yousef, Gorgon City, Justin Robertson, Greg Wilson, Moxie, Greg Lord, plus very special guests Rudimental (DJ Set).
