It's the third Essential Mix Future Star of 2013 - Heidi's choice, George Fitzgerald!
Throughout January Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Heidi and Friction are shining the spotlight on four artists who they think are going to break through big time in 2013.
Heidi's choice is a DJ/Producer from London who has emerged as one of the hottest talents in house and techno in the last couple of years. He released his first records through Scuba's Hotflush label in 2010 and he's since linked up with labels like Hypercolour, Man Make Music and Aus - which put out probably his biggest track to date 'Child'.
'This mix really represents where I'm at as a producer and a DJ at the moment. There's a few completely unheard tracks by myself in the mix, as well as unreleased bits from Scuba, Bicep, Midland and several others. There are also some of my most treasured records by people like Carl Craig, Shed and Ame in there. It covers a lot of ground stylistically and for me on a personal level. Big thanks to Heidi and to Radio 1 for inviting me to do this mix. Its a real honour to contribute to a series that so many of my heroes have been a part of'. George Fitzgerald, January 2013.
This show is part 3 of a 4 part series and available to listen to again via the iPlayer until Friday 1st February, alongside Pete Tong's Future Stars Essential Mix from Perseus and Jonas Rathsman and Annie Mac's choice, Duke Dumont!

"Hi, I'm Metrik and I'm an electronic music producer from London, UK. One of my main aims with this mix was to keep the selection as fresh as possible by sourcing new music from my favourite producers and labels in drum and bass and beyond.
The mix includes a lot of my own tunes and remixes as well as some unreleased, previously unheard material, including my collaboration with ShockOne called 'Lazerbeam' and 'Flightwave VIP'. There are also some unreleased projects which I've been working on recently in the studio and some brand new and exclusive tracks from High Contrast, Ed Rush, Dirtyphonics, ShockOne, Killsonik, Skrillex, Cyantific, Dimension, Brookes Brothers, Flux Pavillion, Opiuo, DC Breaks, Danny Byrd and Roni Size.
I've included some things I wouldn't normally play in a one hour DJ set and have tried to reflect a wide spectrum, covering dance floor, downtempo and some deeper sounds. Hopefully the mix serves as a snapshot of some of the best new music around and what's to come over 2013".
This show is the final part of a 4 part series and available to listen to again via the iPlayer until Friday 1st February, alongside Pete Tong's Future Stars Essential Mix from Perseus and Jonas Rathsman, Annie Mac's choice, Duke Dumont and Heidi's choice George Fitzgerald!
