Enter Tale of Us. The Italian bred, Berlin based duo who have become one of the hottest electronic acts over the past couple of years. These taste-makers bring a certain other worldly experience into everything they touch. This writer’s first encounter with the insanely talented duo came back in late 2013 at an after hours event in the Mile High City; performing a perfectly encompassing set that had myself off on another plane for their extended 4 hour set. This Essential Mix is right on par with that set: debuting 16 new, never before heard tracks mixed ingeniously over the 2 hour allotted period.
Standouts included in this bone-crushing mix come from Plastikman, Jessie Ware and Scuba, as well as a few tracks from Hot Flush and the duo’s own label Life and Death for good measure. For many, their debut essential mix is a jumping off point in their careers and Tale of Us’ premiere is no less than a extraordinary journey.
Listen to this “bringin’ down the house” mix in full over on the BBC Radio 1 website for the next 27 days.
