    Ez bitches.

    Here's my entry for the Ramalam competition. Hope you enjoy this one, bit different from me as it's based around a warm up set rather than party bangers from the offset!

    sick intro man, i dig

    27 mins in so far, can't complain, very nice progression and selection, lotsa tunes i play myself, tight mixing, tight eq'ing

    oh yeah, been rocking that steam train - dog pad (zero-t reprint) drop myself, just a lil different hehe :D

    quiet storm inception remix is sick, like that a lot

    usually i'm no fan of 3 tunes at the same time but you managed that very well with tornado, battlefish and malfunction, very nice leveling there man (y)

    not particulary a fan of the outro, matter of taste though :D

    very good mix man, well structured, nice progression, almost no slips and good equing

    keep it up

    Yo! Quality mix sir :) Quick summary on my fav bits

    Villem & McLeod - Another Star
    Nymfo - Suddenly VIP

    Mids of Another star growling through alongside that rolling bassline of Suddenly VIP. Sounded good man

    Optiv & BTK - Inception (Maztek Rmx)
    >> Ed Rush & Optical - Watermelon

    Sounded good together as the tracks were 'talking' to each other if you know what I mean? The relentless bass of Watermelon calling those Mids of Inception

    Nice mix and good luck !

    Checked this today Russ! Needed a kick up the arse...certainly was that.
    For a warmup set was pretty lively I must say.

    Fav bits

    Zero T - Dog Pad Remix (Kolectiv Rmx)
    Break - Steam Train
    >> Need For Mirrors - Odd Future
    Enei - Mosquito
    >> Habitat - Holdin' It Down
    Xtrah - Contortion
    Optiv & BTK - Inception (Maztek Rmx)
    >> Ed Rush, Optical & Fierce - Alien Girl
    >> Ed Rush & Optical - Watermelon

    Just straight up incredible section.

    Emperor & Centra - Solar
    Dexcell - Watch Out
    >> Noisia & Mayhem feat. KRS One - Exodus

    BIG.

    Really weren't any faults. Maybe some sections or tunes I wasn't keen on but that's just taste tbh.

    Certainly a quality entry. Technical ability is high. (y)

    Really solid mix, man. I was listening to this whilst doing yardwork and didn't have the tracklist in front of me, which actually helped as it made me want to know what certain tunes were. It also likely helped the mood of the competition, as this is supposed to be the sort of set you spin at the opening of a RAM night. Gotta say that the DLR Remix at the beginning was really effing solid, man. I liked the tease with Quest before but that tune really got me moving. When it moved into the Light of Night tune, that was also wicked.

    I liked how there was a really solid progression upward in energy throughout the whole thing. Tunes like the Intersection helped build the vibe up proper nicely, while others like Another Star -> Suddenly VIP would certainly get the crowd stepping heavily. Really loved the section that was: Slivers VIP -> Photon -> Dog Pad -> Steam Train. Like the last tune in that mix, it all built up proper well and rolled forward head-on towards some serious energy.

    Love the teases. The double ER&O tease on the Inception Remix was heavy as. Also didn't know Helense VIP has come out? Big riddims on that one! Quattro -> Membrane -> Instinct -> Solar was ABSOLUTELY MAD! Lost my shit totally to that bit! And the outro was full of a strong mix of old school flavor, new school energy, and exactly what you need to get properly warmed up for some RAM dancefloor vibes.

    VERY Strong contender here, Russla. You should be exceptionally proud of how this one was put together.
