On Twitter, Skream shared the news that his third Radio 1 Essential Mix is on the way and will be the first of the decade. In addition to it being his return to the BBC's iconic mix series, he unveiled that the upcoming broadcast would mark his first Essential Mix comprised entirely of his own tunes.

The legendary electronic pioneer excited fans with the promise of new music included in the mix. He's been hard at work as of late, as this year saw the release of songs like "Otto's Chant" with Michael Bibi, "Song for Olivia," and his most recent release "Ectogazm." With a wide variety of sound in his library, fans are eager to see what he's cooked up for his return to the legendary radio program.
