I just discovered that my favorite dj team in the world did a Radio 1 Essential Mix back in 2006. The team in question is of course the two Scotsmen JG Twitch and JG Wilks who make up the super musical/art empire Optimo Espacio. They mix up the old and the new like few else do. So if you don´t already have their How To Kill The Dj vol 2 CD you should definitely do something about that.

Pete Tong gives all relevant information about the duo at the start of the set, if you´re a history buff.
