The Essential Mix is a weekly radio show on BBC Radio 1
currently broadcast between 03:00 and 05:00 Saturday morning.
Originally broadcast on 30 October 1993, The Essential
Mix features contemporary DJs and music producers of
electronic dance music.
Should be these two:
But this is what you probably want to do:

However, the main problem here is that Coral doesn't cache any files >50mb, so almost none of these are cached. The few <50mb do seem to be, though, e.g.: http://thenine.ca.nyud.net/essential/1998/1998.01.01%20-%20E...
However aren't they copyrighted?!

"However in 2010, Mixriot, a website which hosted stream and download links to past Essential Mix broadcasts dating back to the first ever edition for its members, was asked to remove all its past recordings by production company Somethin' Else due to copyright infringement. The Mixriot website is still live though it has since taken down all Essential Mix broadcasts."
I would expect the owner of that site to be getting a nasty letter from a lawyer Real Soon Now.
And Yes! I'm glad this came to HN, otherwise I wouldn't find it and I love the Essential Mixes.
From 2010 I recommend the one from John 00 Fleming at 13-FEB-2010.
Anyone ever been to Ultra Music Festival? Most amazing time of my life.
Anyway, here is a recommendation:
2006.03.26 - This is a good long mix I listened to many times.
i don't get it, why downvotes ?
1. As a time portal showing the evolutionary development of electronic music over the past 17 years, it also a reflection of the evolution of personal computing. From atari and circuit bending roland synths to the macbook.
2. Music is an important part of my coding or designing process.
Most recently 48 days ago (which has links to many others):
Encouraging people to make each of those links (and others like them) a separate post is another.
There's certainly some sort of misunderstanding going on, because now I have no idea what that is supposed to mean or refer to.
My original intended point:
I do not want to see more posts such as "Every BBC Essential Mix, 1993 to 2010". When they do appear, I prefer people not up-vote them; it just encourages more of the same.
I do, however, like certain posts that accumulate a multitude of links to a variety of music sources. And it was a post of that kind that was (incorrectly) presented as some sort of precedence for the current post.
In any event, these things will sort themselves out as people prefer.
