HUGE TUNES in a tiny space

I am a big fan of Radio 1 in general, but my favourite show without a doubt is Annie Mac's minimix podcast, where she commissions huge names in the dance music scene to create a 5-minute DJ set. Today I am going to share 2 of my favourite minimixes from her podcast.

First up, a minimix from someone who is huge right now, the enigmatic Fake Blood. Annie herself says that this is one of the best minimixes she's ever had, which includes tracks from Chemical Brothers, Silver Apples and Scenario Rock.

The other minimix I have for you today is from Beyond The Wizards Sleeve. BTWS consists of DJs Richard Norris and Erol Alkan. They have cranked out several trippy remixes for everyone from Midlake to Late of the Pier to Franz Ferdinand. Their minimix is composed of 28 lovely little psychedelic nuggets, listen to this and you'll feel like its the Summer Of Love all over again.
