    Brookes Bros are actually pretty good DJs.

    I knew it. I said that the next dnb essential mix would be the Brookes Brothers

    I bet the one after them will be Loadstar. The BBC are so predictable when it comes to their choices for dnb essential mixes. For fucks sake, what does Calibre have to do to get one?

    Totally agree, we saw Dan in Kent a couple of weeks ago and he smashed it, also played loads of dubs.

    Be popular? no wait that can't be it, too obvious.

    I pay a license fee to hear stuff that isn't popular. If I wanted to listen to popular music I'd listen to Galaxy/Kiss/Capital etc

    All I'm asking is that for once in a while they expose people to a side of dnb that never gets a look in on the BBC except for on the specialist shows on Radio 1/1xtra

    Who wants to listen to another 2 hour liquid cheese fest? Not me

    I would put money on it not being a solid 2 hours of liquid... they can be pretty diverse when playing out. I'm looking forward to see what they come up with on this.

    Only thing is it will be catered for Radio 1 listeners so this might sway them away from their normal selection

    Maybe. But they are pretty good DJs really, anyways you can't expect Radio 1 to give essential to someone who's not popular widely. There were essentials from Sub Focus, Pendulum, Netsky, Danny Byrd and Noisia (plus if you care you can count in Breakage and Zinc) in last 2 years, so it's really no point expecting above mentioned Calibre for example.

    Props to Dan & Phil. Worked hard on an album for time and now they get some well deserved recognition with this essential mix.

    Expect loads of cheeky dubs

    Calibre doesn't need to do one.

    Jesus, chin strokers...

    Brookes kill it, and frankly represent the spectrum well, a much better choice to provide the average r1 listener with this than calibre...

    People who tune into/record essential mixes are doing it because they love the music, it shouldn't be about raising the profile of dnb, its selecting djs/producers who have made significant input into the scene and deserve to showcase 2 hours of their influences and new tunes. Brookes Bros are decent producers, but they have hardly pushed boundaries or done much that other artists like the ones you listed have already done. Their sounds are pretty similar to the average bbk/hospital producers. There are numerous dnb artists who have done a lot more for the music and are more talented than them, its just a shame that radio1 go for popularity above anything else.
