DJ Shadow's first BBC 1 Essential mix in 13 years is here. He first announced the mix in April with a brief tweet.

It's been 13 years since my last — DJ Shadow (@djshadow)April 12, 2016

DJ Shadow shared his thoughts about the new mix–which features Salva and the Ohio Players, among many, many others–on Friday. According to the producer and DJ, the first half of the mix was recorded in April and is dedicated to the "genius" he hears on a regular basis and the music dear to his heart. "I hope this 2-hour mix is fully representative of my DJ aesthetic: demonstrating a love for our musical past and present in equal measure," he wrote.
