Finally, after a lot begging and pleading by followers, he’s bringing the moniker again to life. As a particular deal with, he dropped a nasty b2b set with himself dwell on BBC Radio 1. He did two hours as each Testpilot and Deadmau5. The set is offered to stream now on Soundcloud, in case you missed it.

It’s laborious to recollect the final time BBC Radio 1 had such an epic b2b set. A superb instance would in all probability be Eric Prydz b2b Jeremy Olander (also available on Soundcloud) from just a few years again. On high of that, when’s the final time somebody b2b’d with themselves? Outside of some schizophrenic DJ in England claiming to be the first, it’s fairly unprecedented. This makes Joel’s newest visitor combine all of the extra epic because of this.
