So Thom Yorke & Nigel Godrich took over the Essential Mix decks this weekend. We didn’t really know what to expect from this, other than it was going to be anything but straight forward beats. Thom Yorke’s latest solo project ‘Atoms For Peace’ has taken his Eraser template and stripped it down to its elemental parts creating a disjointed yet oddly mesmerising piece of electronica. For some ‘Atoms For Peace‘ might be a little to introspective, but for those of you, like us, who adore all things Radiohead AMOK and this mix are essential listening. However word of warning this mix is about music rather than mixing perfection, this is not seamless House and Techno, but who cares…..


You can catch Thom’s latest project on tour during the festival season backed by strong rumours of a forthcoming Radiohead LP later this year. Happy times.

Big thanks to Pete Tong and Radio 1 for this Mix.
