According to her, Sidetracked will be all about discussing anything and everything interesting, funny, odd, remarkable, or even terrible in the world of music. I mean, how amazing does that sound?
She even added a cheeky little quote from her co-host, saying it’s going to be like “Newsnight with a donk on it.” Now, I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a winning combination to me!

But here’s the exciting part: she won’t be doing this alone. Annie Mac will be joined by none other than the current BBC Radio 1 host, Nick Grimshaw, as her co-host.

Starting with my first EDM event in 2010 at Nocturnal Wonderland and hearing One by Swedish House Mafia and Benny Bennassi’s “Satisfaction” I have been hooked on EDM. While Above&Beyond and Anjunabeats captured my heart in 2012, the genre I love the most is Hardstyle and I feel the most alive when listening to it. My favorite part about the EDM world is the energy that is packed into each genre fan base and event. Writing for Deep In The Mix gives me the opportunity to contribute back to the EDM world I love so much.
