    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!

    does the 12" of automatic not have the horrible pitching up of the vocal on the second drop?

    Culture Shock - Troglodyte
    Traffic - Structures

    Misanthrop - Deadlock
    Sub Focus - Stomp

    Chase and Status - No Problem
    Sub Focus - Druggy
    >> Andy C and Shimon - Quest

    were my favourite mixes off this, nice mix all around and appreciate the different subgenres and older tunes!

    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
