Tchami Shows Diplo and Friends the Future of House


BBC – Radio 1Xtra, Diplo and Friends: Tchami and Benzi

Mad Decent mastermind and professional genre mixologist, Diplo, has been taking over weekends with his pals on his BBC Radio 1Xtra show ‘Diplo & Friends’ since 2012, featuring newcomers and industry mainstays alike. The two hour radio program has hosted Avicii, RL Grime, Paper Diamond, Tiësto, Foreign Beggars, Boys Noize, and God knows who else. Recently it’s been excellent platform to promote new artists like Lido or Diplo’s own new venture with Skrillex, Jack Ü (official BBC Stream).

The latest edition to this young and star studded radio show is none other than France’s own ‘future’ producer, Tchami. After Tchami finished throwing down a mix that solidifies himself as the industry’s leader in ‘future house’, Benzi was brought in to present Volume 6 of his Girl Trapz series (which can be heard in the second hour).

Tchami’s set is a mix-mash of sounds both new and old, and was bound by no genre as he played tracks from Destructo, Jack Ü, Carnage, Gorgon City, Sam Smith, and of course himself. Despite all the mixed styles, no track feels like an outlier, and everything meshes together with ease. Looking for a deep mix with a bite? Something with serious ‘umpf’ behind those low bass notes? Then study up on the track list below and play the mix above, and always: enjoy!
