After mixing for 2 and a half years I've finally recorded a mix that I am (almost) happy with, minus a few mistakes, but uploaded anyway otherwise I never would!

Hope you guys enjoy it, tried to make it nice and varied. Will try and make a habit of recording a mix every month or so now I've got the initial one out of the way!

It was recorded using 3 1210's, Xone 92, and Traktor.

Wicked mix defo gonna listen again. I like the fact that you mix old and new together too many people fixate on just playing the latest tunes rather than what might sound good.


Druggy >> Quest is mix of 2014 for me so far that is defo getting nicked. Cheers.

Thanks man glad you like it! I always find a set so much more enjoyable when old tunes are played aswell, drum and bass has a great history so why not make use of it!

Thanks mate! I edited Automatic and just copy and pasted the phrase of the first drop in place of the pitched up one on the second drop. The pitched up bit is shit haha
