Listen: Matthew Herbert Delivers a Must-Hear Essential Mix

This week on the long-running UK radio show, Pete Tong called on an old friend and a true musical maverick, Matthew Herbert, to take the Essential Mix controls. With a new dance-ready album The Shakes out now, the multi-talented producer, composer, filmmaker and big band leader switched into DJ mode for two free-flowing hours.

Over his 120 minutes, the UK-based polymath presented a far-reaching, 32-track selection of eclectic house, bleepy techno, electronica and beyond, featuring the likes of Paul Johnson, Mr. Oizo, Axel Boman, Matrixxman and more. As you’d expect, there’s also plenty of Herbert’s own music woven into the mix, including the enchanting “Middle,” “Grab That Bottle” and a new Merz remix of “Silence.”

“I’m doing a festival this weekend so I had to prerecord this,” he explained at the show’s opening. “In fact, I did have an audience who was our pet tortoise. She came out of her hutch, sat there watched me for two hours and didn’t move a muscle. [Laughs] I’m really hoping that tortoises aren’t the target audience for this…anyway, I hope you like it. I had fun doing it. You can all try it at home with your own tortoise and see what they think of it.”
