DJ Hanzel – Mix BBC Radio 1: Music to push that one bit deeper
DJ Hanzel, a.k.a Dillon Francis‘ infamous alter ego has taken over the decks at BBC Radio 1. It’s at this stage, all you want to do is leave the club. It’s 3am, the music is drying up like a desert and your attention is now solely focussed on what kebab you want from across the road. Here is just 30 minutes of numbness to push you that one bit deeper into the night – just so your mates don’t think you are a pussy.
