Hot Chip - Essential Mix - 12/29/07

The Essential Mix is a weekly radio show broadcast on BBC Radio 1. It is singularly the greatest influence on my disc jockeying career. The summation of the internet, Napster and T1 connection coupled with a desire for music at the first university I attended culminated in my almost student-like devotion in listening to as many Essential Mixes as I possibly could.

The following is a recent Essential Mix done by Hot Chip, a British electro-pop band. It's quite eclectic in tracklisting, which I enjoy. It also features the narsty new Snoop Dogg single "Sexual Seduction" (which has another version titled as "Sexual Eruption").
