Described as a “future classic” by the lady herself, Illyus & Barrientos delivered their first minimix for Annie Mac's Radio 1 show on Friday night, and it’s up there with the best we’ve heard. Having previously hosted everyone from Eats Everything to MK, the coveted feature is one of dance music’s prized invitations, where DJs get to flex their musical muscles in a five minute mega mash-up.
With Annie showing love for the duo’s recent ‘Need Me’ EP on Glasgow Underground as well as remixes of Kokiri and Lovebirds, Illyus & Barrientos are fast becoming show favourites, something which seems to be spreading throughout the Radio 1 dance fraternity. In their minimix you’ll hear a broad range of influences and current favourites, ranging from RnB classics to garage bangers and hip-house jams.
