|6M||Andrew Weatherall Returns To The 6 Mix Decks||20110213|
Iconic DJ Andrew Weatherall returns for the latest edition of his 6 Mix residency. One of Britain's best loved DJs, Andrew was thrust back into the public eye last November by Primal Scream, when they performed their Weatherall-produced magnum opus - Screamadelica - live for the first time in full. Since then Andrew has been the subject of an internet fan campaign to get him a weekly radio show and has confirmed he'll be the Primals' tour DJ when they take Screamadelica on the road over the UK this spring, celebrating its twentieth anniversary. In his latest 6 Mix show, Andrew plays an eclectic selection of music, from folk to rockabilly, via dub and minimal techno as well as new work and remixes fresh from his Rotters Golf Club studio in East London. In the final 30 minutes of the show, Andrew throws opens the doors to his 'Sunday night disco' featuring a live 30 minute mix of upfront new dance music from balearic beats to techno bangers.
|6M||Bristol 6 Mix Special: Tricky And Massive Attack||20160130|
In this programme, there's another chance to hear mixes from two stalwarts of the Bristol music scene. The first hour sees trip-hop pioneer Tricky take to the 6 Mix decks for an hour of musical inspirations, new and old. We then press play on Massive Attack's 6 Mix from 2012, in which 3D and Daddy G play a selection of their favourite music, alongside tracks which influenced their seminal album Blue Lines.
Erol Alkan returns to the 6 Mix, taking you on a sonic journey through bleeps, beats, beasts and bass from the cutting edge of club culture. Since his last show, Erol has been busy touring Australia and America as well as being hard at work in the studio, remixing MGMT and Tame Impala. In his latest 6 Mix, Erol delves into the crates to unearth a selection of hidden gems alongside a selection of upfront electronic and experimental sounds. In the final 30 minutes, Erol's 'mystery mix' returns, with a secret selection of future club bangers destined to shake the dancefloor in 2011.
Ahead of the release of the new compilation, We Make Colourful Music Because We Dance In The Dark, the Greco-Roman founders discuss some of their favourite tracks, new and old, ranging from Talking Heads to Lenny De Ice.
Starting as a run of late night get-togethers, the Greco-Roman imprint has evolved from its party roots and in the past few years has been responsible for releasing music from artists such as Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and Disclosure.
In this special programme, DJ Ross Allen talks to the Greco-Roman label founders: Joe Goddard, Alex Waldron and Dominic Bastyra, about the music that has influenced themselves and the label. In the second hour of the show, Joe Goddard and Alex Waldron take to the decks to play a selection of their current dancefloor favourites.
6 Mix Residents, Groove Armada, return to the 6 Music decks for one last time to play two hours of funk-fuelled house and disco.
Ever since the brass melody of 'At The River' melted our hearts in 1997, we've been captivated by Groove Armada's consistently superb productions and incredible live shows. Seven studio albums later, a Grammy nomination for 'Superstylin'' and with a plethora of hits such as 'I See You Baby', Andy Cato and Tom Findlay still sit at the top of British electronic music.
After establishing Lovebox as one of the most eclectic and high quality line-ups in the increasingly competitive festival circuit, the pair have moved away from the event and are now concentrating on making some of the best underground house and techno tracks on forward thinking labels such as Hot Creations, Get Physical, Danseclub, Om and Moda Black.
As 6 Mix Residents alongside Goldie, Erol Alkan, Derrick May, Andrew Weatherall, Rob da Bank, DJ Yoda and Jamie xx, Groove Armada began their foray on the 6 Music airwaves by presenting the 6 Mix's special to mark the 10th Anniversary of the station back in 2012. Since then, they've demonstrated their electric range of influences from funk, soul and disco classics all the way through to some of the most exciting up-and-coming producers making their mark in the game today.
|6M||Jamie Xx Talks About Collaborating With Gil Scott-heron||20110220|
One third of the Mercury Awards winners The XX and 2011's most in-demand remix artist, Jamie XX, takes over the 6 Mix. Formed in London in 2005, the XX released their debut album in 2009, with its sparse, minimal production by Jamie pricking up the ears of scenesters and musicians alike. In 2010 his reworking of Florence And The Machine's cover of 'You Got The Love' set the online world alight, and already this year his remix of Adele's 'Rolling In The Deep' has become one of the most blogged tunes worldwide. As he prepares to release 'We're New Here' - his dubstep and old skool house flavoured reworking of Gill Scott Heron's 2010 album 'I'm New Here', Jamie takes over the 6 Mix to play a selection of the music which inspired his productions alongside some of his current favourites. Jamie also tells the story of how he came to remix the whole Gil Scott Heron album and the dance music influences which informed its radical reworking.
|6M||The Disco Train With Marc Hughes||20110227|
The disco train rides again as DJ Marc Hughes returns for the latest edition of his 6 Mix residency. Marc - a Ministry Of Sound resident who's recently DJed across Europe and Brazil - plays the best in old skool house from the last thirty years, alongside his favourite disco tunes in a 40 minute sweep of glitterball action. In the last half hour Marc will be in the mix, playing an upfront selection of techno influenced club music.
