    VERY LARGE MIX !! the whole vibe was vibey :) haha liquid theme worked really nice, kinda going that way myself on my new one
    mad to see you pull out Full Circle as just give that a run myself over the weekend
    The first chunk of the mix was just rolling, didnt know many of the tunes, so hard to connect with but enjoyed it none the less, no slips or slides, just rolled through, great blends, couldnt really tell where one tune started an the next began, although i was half busy at the time it sounded lush..
    I think the bit that pleased me most was :-
    Rockwell - Full Circle
    Chroma - So Alone
    Badmarsh & Shri - Signs (Calibre Remix)
    Marcus Intalex - Temperance
    LTJ Bukem - Atlantis (Marky & S.P.Y. Remix)
    S.P.Y. - See The Light
    Total Science - Nosher (Baron Remix)

    Never knew the name of that Calibre remix, kinda want to buy but at the same time dont wanna kill that tune, but to hear it in this mix was f**king amazing, kinda thought i heard it coming in, but i was like NAHHH and then it did ! loved it ! followed by another favourite of mine Temperance which is has sex written all over it and then Atlantis FIIIIIRE IN THE HOLE !!!
    bangin mix, personally thought it would of ended well on Nosher, as Gangsta didnt gel well i didnt think, but none the less wonderful mix man !

    Thanks for listening and for the detailed feedback mate! I'm glad you liked it. I think that's probably my favourite bit of the mix as well and yeah in hindsight I think you're right about Gangster. It was one of those things where I had it stuck in my head that I was going to get the tune in the mix somehow and did my best to make it work!

    And get Signs. I've no idea how many times I've played it and it's just as amazing as when I first heard it!

    Big up mate!

    Loved the intro first 3 or 4 tunes, really digged the liquidy style opening.

    but yea as Danny said & I said previously this bit was quality...

    Chroma - So Alone
    Badmarsh & Shri - Signs (Calibre Remix)
    Marcus Intalex - Temperance
    LTJ Bukem - Atlantis (Marky & S.P.Y. Remix)
    S.P.Y. - See The Light

    I can't really fault it tbh. Great selection etc. mixing was steady but good skwiffy, can really see your taking on the feedback from previous mixes to make your next ones better etc, makes doing feedback worthwhile for me + your keen to feedback on others, another reason I listen to your mixes (y)

    My only critique is I didnt dig the last couple of tunes, just personal preference, would like to see a mix from you with the deeper styles like Pressure Plate (big ups for playing it, its in my next mix which i'm longing out massively)

    Wicked sir.

    Must spread moar rep sadly :(

    Thanks for the listen and for the feedback Stu. Much appreciated as always :D Yeah I think you guys are right about the last couple of tracks. I'm slowly being able to take my time over recording a mix. I didn't even used to be able to plan one and get it recorded at a decent level until fairly recently. I've been meaning to a proper mix with deeper stuff, but I end up doing all styles. I tend to be abit torn because I want to record something that I can hand as a promo mix, but also something that I want to sit and listen to. Get a bit torn between styles when recording. The dancefloor in Bournemouth is pretty jump up or generally rowdy, but I like to play deeper stuff and this ends up being the result! I think I need to work on separating the two out a bit, so will be doing that over the next...bit of time.

    And on the feedback tip, I wish I could remember most of the mixes I listen to to give proper feedback! I tend to listen while I'm walking somewhere or when I'm at work and I'm not really able to type anything out as I go (I say, typing a reasonably big response while at work).

    Anyway, cheers again for the listen. Glad you liked it! Big up as always! (And same on the rep front)

    Enjoyed this mix a lot mate, don't think I have checked one of yours before but I was very impressed.
    Favourite part was probably the first section

    She's On Fire (Calibre Remix)
    Love Hurts
    Lately (Fracture Astrophonica Remix)
    Raised by Wolves
    Reach
    Forsaken feat. Peven Everett & Spectrasoul

    really smooth mixing, few tracks I liked that I had not heard before mixed in with some personal favourites - perfect!
    The mixes with full circle sounded good and also signs through to atlantis remix was wicked, I need to dig out Temperance more often.
    As for the last couple tracks, I don't think there is anything wrong with switching up styles but i thought the mix ended quite suddenly
    - you sort of brought up the energy with some dancefloor/jump up tracks but then it stopped,
    would have been nice to hear you keep that going for a bit longer then leading into an ending that was as well thought out as the opening, if that makes sense.
    But overall was a wicked mix, well done! i'll keep an eye out for your next ones
