Idris Elba Goes Mad for 3 Beat!

Actor Idris Elba joined national treasure Trevor Nelson to co-host the second hour of his 1Xtra show on BBC Radio 1 on Saturday night.

Best know for his roles in TV shows The Wire and Luther, Elba is no stranger to the decks – he’s a massive music fan and has been DJing since he was a teenager.

And on Saturday night Idris Elba showed the world that he is a man of impeccable taste, dropping four – YES FOUR – 3 Beat tracks into his guest mix! First up was TS7’s new single “Heartlight” featuring Liverpool’s hottest rising star Taylor Fowlis. Next came “Beat Down”, Steve Aoki’s massive collaboration with Angger Dimas and Iggy Azalea. He closed his set with two 3 Beat tracks back-to-back. Brand new Stylo Gee “Soundbwoy” which Idris predicts will be a “summer smasher“ and then Sway & Kano’s “Still Sway & Kane” featuring Tigger Da Author.

You can listen back to the whole show here.
