    All good J not a big deal.....been playin a lot of halftime lately anyway. Had one likwid mix knocking around. This was a good mix. I remember you saying you struggle putting likwid mixes together before so i was happy to hear it and off the cuff to....big tings. I was thinking about maybe starting a thread based on "off the cuff" mixes and calling it the OTC sessions. I love doing that and think it would be fun to hear how everybody plays non planned out sets.

    Yeah i felt something was lacking for the now lovely and sunny drives to work, so decided I needed to record. Hope you enjoy mate!

    Took me a while to find an appropriate one so glad you liked it haha! cheers for checking man

    Such an underrated tune and album imo. Doesn't get the plays it should.

    Yeah i'm never ever entirely happy with liquid ones as there's always too many vocals and varying keys in my slightly limited collection to really bring out the best in how i mix. That's the way I view it. Yeah it's always nice to hear less planned ones, but then I guess I do the same when playing out so it's practice to see how unthought up stuff is received by people. That could be a good shout!

    Whirled this a few times J.
    Loved the opening track. Really set the mood, fine art of an intro track nailed here IMO.
    Selection for me was on point throughout. Played my favourite tune off the System album, Snow, Breathe In, Daydreamer, Still Waters fucking hell I could go on forever.

    Fav section was

    Garden remix
    Breathe In
    Daydreamer

    Probably not the best technically from you, I really struggle piecing liquid mixes together, getting the keys relatively the same or avoiding vocal clashes, so understand completely.

    Last two tunes finished it off nicely IMO. I was looking for an ID of that Dbridge remix for a while so thanks for that! Partly the reason I love members mixes is stumbling across tunes you've been looking for.

    Big ups man.

    Cheers for the feedback stu, really appreciated. I'd like to think I went down the substance over style route with this one. A few mixes definitely didn't work as well as I'd have liked but as you say, key clashes and such plus a bit of general sloppiness contributed.

    Next time I do a liquid one I'll certainly be planning it. Glad you enjoyed it though. Agree with you about the mark system tune, easily the best on the album. Yeah finding those gems is the best bit about member mixes, that and the quality keep me coming back. P.s. You should check the Dbridge remix of that machine drum tune that came out for rsd. It's sublime

    Ah yes you know! Intro business in that tune as well!
