    Cheers for checking man.

    Thanks for the positive feedback! It means a lot. Good to know using the extra deck worked, I'll probably record a few more 3 deck mixes to improve.

    Thanks mate, good to see you managed to record a comp entry too - I shall listen and feedback, TL is right up my street.

    Big ups for checking again mate, glad you liked it. Yeah was going for a rolling style mix as it was first 3 deck attempt and thought it would be easier to use the extra deck to keep longer continuous mixes rather than lots of quick doubles as It wouldn't be as tight.

    Wicked mate, nice to see people are liking the TL, so many great tracks this year would have liked to record a longer one.

    Will have a listen, track list looks good.

    Listening through now, intro is tight man. Tunes really work well together and beatmatching and blending is pretty much perfect. Couple of tunes that i probably wouldnt of drawn for but thats personal preference and by no means did any of them clash so far man. Proper nice smooth mix man

    Did this mostly on vinyl using two 1210s, also used a Numark omni controller running tracktor as a 3rd deck. Still getting used to it as the pitch is a lot flimsier than what I'm used to but it does the job.

    Nice one mate, I appreciate the feedback. I'm always happy to hear it was smooth, thats the type of mixing I enjoy and try to aim for so I'm glad you thought so.

    >> Alix Perez - Exemption - no messing, straight into it. liked what u did with the vocal before the drop. rest of the mix was cool
    Phace & Rockwell - No! - bang into this nice and quick, sat wicked over 1 chance
    Basher - Androids - nice
    Foreign Concept & Kasra - Show You - yeah this was ok.
    Marcus Intalex - Stark - didn't like this one over show you's piano but other than that they sounded nice when they dropped together.
    Seba & Physics - Before I can Breath - hmm, didn't feel it at first man. sounded better later on in the mix. it just kind of took over instead of being a part of stark.
    Skeptical - Blue Eyes - tune! yeah liked this mix, smooth as fook
    Marcus Intalex - Virgo - nice vibes man, rolling mix and changine styles, like it.
    Amoss - Secondary - well played double, sounded nice and contrasting.
    Icicle - Dreadnaught- yeah was cool, shame about secondary's vocal overlapping.
    Enei - Stonehead - didnt like the intro drums over the breakdown. would have brought it in when the drums cut out before the drop. rest sounded good, would have switched back to dreadnaught when its drums cut out for a cheeky switch.
    Skeptical - Catch 22 - swish
    Vicious Circle & Nocturnal - Last Chance Saloon - spot on
    Octance , DLR & Safire - Peel Street - ok
    Amoss - Footloose - not too shabby
    S.P.Y & Kasra - Surface - wicked, liked this one.
    Vicious Circle & Jubei - Deliberate - really liked the way u brought it in, sounded crisp. liked the cut off too.
    Amoss - Astrodome - banging mix mate
    Commix - Double Double - wicked
    Rockwell - Btkrsh - not sure about this one.
    Sub Zero - Poon - why?!
    Sub Focus - Stomp - nice lil cheeky switch, wasn't a big fan on the mix tbh tho
    Phace - Freedom of Filth - not bad, bit less mid on this one, stomps vocals had trouble coming through on the intro, rest of the mix sounded nice.
    Misanthrop - Amboss - possibly had this bass up during the breakdown. sounding nice on the drop. nice switch too.
    Enei - Obsession - liked the way it came in. sounded quite nice. lost a lot of oumph when u took out amboss. levels are quite low on this one.
    Vicious Circle & Jubei - Cloak & Dagger - nice.
    Jubei & Kasra - The Rift - liked the lil snippet brought in before the previous track dropped back in. was a lil loud when it did but i liked it. sounded really good after the bass switch.
    >> Foreign Concept & Bringa - Cemetery - didn;t think id like them togehter but it worked quite well. later on tho u could hardly hear cemetery's vocal.
    Commix - City Section - came in really well, would have personally switched at the drop.
    Sub Zero - Brighter Days - nice
    Technicolour & Komatic - Changling - tidy

    overall a banging mix mate.
    selection was spot on. with a best of 2011 i will prob always disagree with a lot of tracks people have played but not so much on this one. theres a few i wouldn't consider to meet the criteria but agree with the others. also poon? really? it was going so well, ha ha

    eq and beatmatching was spot on cant really fault it or make any suggestions.

    only thing i would say is the overall recording quality, it could be slightly better i think. the begining sounded a lil hollow. i paused it and loaded up another track from my own soundcloud and it was a lot louder and crisp. didn't really notice after a while tho so its all good. if you havent got a usb soundcard id def get urself a cheap one.
    big ups man, look 4ward to ur next mix.
