    i rep drum and bass quite frequently in Tokyo. great scene here; i'm a big fan of Aki, Velocity, Makoto, and a host of other DJs that make Japan such a bad ass place to be in.

    despite being a foreigner (and an american at that), i've gotten to play many gigs alongside the legendary locals you'll find in the East. hope you enjoy my mix:

    starts with Kove, bumps into some Mefjus and Wilkinson, and ends with Sub Focus.

    Ok I will listen......
    Ruhepuls/Deep In My Heart was a really nice mix. I don't really like Hamilton that much... i know i know but that mix was really good.
    Ok Someone/ Eclipse was BIG...... really nice so far mang. Then into Together In The Night....flawless. Like where this is going so far.
    Little vocal clash with Music Sounds Better.... such a big trak. Overthinking should be a big mix tho. Did something completely different then what i thought u would there....almost sounded like an edit or something. Levels needed to be flawless to pull that off.
    And your back in with They Think That.... made up for the Music Sounds Better/ Overthinking mix.
    Redemption was another BIG mix right there.... i dont know why i dont listen to Wilkinson that much the 2 traks you played have been 2 of my favorites so far ha ha. note to self.
    Brainfreeze into Sequenz was nice...... bangin'em out now huh...... there was alot going on in the Faith mix right there.... good attempt to bring it back down tho
    Excellent mix into Games People Play tho it's not my cup of tea so to speak....... same goes with Just a Thought/Terra/ Out Of The Fire/Home/WKND..... all stellar mixes just can't get into the traks.... I've said it before tho this could be somebody's favorite part of the mix!
    Close Your Eyes mix was great...... this is the kind of Liquid I like. Nice double drop with Homeless Romantic..... still rolling nice one mang.
    Homeless Romantic/You Do Me Wrong don't feel as if these 2 went together very well IMO.
    Don't remember Beat The System being that heavy of a trak went well with You Do Me Wrong
    A lot going on with Afterglow/First Contact/Refugee..... mixed well but a lot to take in as far as melodies and drums and everything.
    Strung Out comes in to settle it all down tho. Nice one. I hear Contemporary coming in and i already know this is going to be BIG....... yes sir thats the business right there....... biggest mix so far mang.
    Crank It Up/Casino/Glowing In The Dark all good mixes.
    Vocal clash on All I Know/Safe In Sound.... sorry but im a stickler for that.
    Her With You....... really dancefloor oriented now...... and more with Ems Trak and the rest was pretty much like this. Liked hearing Together one of my favorite Logistics traks of all time.
    All in all a good mix mang. Not my favorite TL but a good represenation of DNB. Good job and it was mixed very good. Just leaves one question 3 decks or 4? Keep'em coming.

    Out of all my time mixing, you are the first person to break down one of my mixes and provide constructive criticism. Massive thanks.

    It made my day to read your post- thank you for taking the time to not only listen, but provide some incredible feedback.

    I personally thought my weakest mix was Deep In My Heart/Need your Love [Cyantific]. And I'm glad you liked Strung Out/Contemporary. If only I had better crossfader skills- those two tunes are like brothers.

    Recorded at home on a semi broken 4 deck S4. CDJs when out and about.

    Looking forward to hearing one of yours!

    Im glad to give u a review...not enough mixes get reviews on here IMO. Anyway yes Strung out and Contemorary was BIG.... back in the day we use to marry tracks that went together like that and put them in the same sleeve....reminds me of that. As for one of mine I just dropped one on here...... its call A Hard Knoxx Life Vol.7....feedback would be great.
