Hannah Wants knows how to hold it down when it comes to bass-house. Just give her a set of decks, cut the club lights off, and you'll find out why she earned the title of Mixmag's Star of the Year in 2014.  The self-taught DJ and ex-athlete catapulted to the status of an international musician earlier in the same year as she solidified her stake in party paradises like Ibiza, as well as music festivals like Holy Ship! and Hideout Festival. Earlier this year, Miss Wants played her first tour in the US, a tour de force that made waves across the sea from her native UK. It's easy to see that Hannah Wants is heading for gold. If you weren't fortunate enough to catch one of her unforgettable shows, don't fret – she'll be back stateside for HARD Summer.

This past week, Miss Wants joined the ranks of the electronic elite: she completed her first Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1. Listen as she discusses her inspirations in the midst of a two-hour mix of pure bassline heaven. Her Essential Mix includes two new track debuts, one featuring Detour City ("Hidden Love"), in addition to dancefloor favorites from Cirez D and Dusky. The mix leads into a slower, introspective note as she transitions into XXYYXX, and finally she ends on a classic '80s number.
Mixtapes have always been a massive part of me as an artist. When I make a mixtape you get the whole of me. For me it's about going on a journey... exploring music, the tiny details, the intricate mixing. I spent days searching for the beats to include in this mix. It was important for me to use a wide range of music from new and unheard exclusives, current tracks, older tracks, as well as some classics that both influenced me through the years. This Essential Mix is a full representation of my sound and style at this time in my career and was an absolute honor to make. Thank you!
