Musical Roots: The Breezeblock on BBC Radio One

Musical Roots: The Breezeblock on BBC Radio One

Update on 2010-02-21 – BBC Radio One’s show “The Breezeblock” hosted by Mary Anne Hobbs has long been one of my favorites. Back in college, it was one of the two main influences in defining the sound of my radio show on Radio1190, “The Acid Lounge“, along with Gilles Peterson’s show “Worldwide”. Although I’ve listened to a ton of the Breezeblock mixes, I only managed to download and archive a handful of them. In the recent years that this post has existed, there’s been a good amount of traffic from people looking to download and listen to Breezeblock episodes so, I’m posting up as many of the shows as I can find. Also, here’s a listing of a lot more of the episodes on Mixes DB Cheers!

Just unearthed Lemon Jelly’s 1999 Breezeblock, originally broadcast on BBC Radio One. I’m a huge fan of this mix, and of Lemon Jelly in general – give it a listen – uplifting and fun.

Also, when you’re done with that, check out a video or two – Stay with You is fantastic.

Reminds me a lot of Michel Gondry’s video for the Chemical Brothers’ “Star Guitar”, another favorite.
