Every Saturday we feature a DJ mix that you absolutely need to hear. This week: Maceo Plex takes over the BBC 1 decks for the world’s most popular mix show, the Essential Mix.

Eric Estornel is a US-born + Spain-based DJ/Producer who has been releasing records for a dozen years, formerly under the alias Maetrik. As recently as 2009 however, Estornel switched gears from dark sounding techno to lush, funky, and the deeper sounds of the lauded Crosstown Rebels label.

Indeed, Estornel’s new project Maceo Plex has done much to define the sound of what is perhaps the most critically-acclaimed label in house music right now. Moreover, he is part of a revolution in house music that is sweeping America that is uniting lovers of disco, tech house, uk funky, garage, and other disparate production styles and genres.

Mark my words: after he plays the most important party at Ultra Music Festival in Miami on March 24th – I’m talking about the 7th installment of Crosstown Rebels’ Get Lost, of course – Maceo Plex will be one of the most demanded performers in electronic music.

Sounds like hyperbole, but check the line-up:
