    Really enjoyed the mix. Haven't heard such vibes in a while. Every track builds on the last one and delivers cohesion, a thing that, I might add, is quite neglected in favour for energy build-ups. It's quite refreshing to hear such a mix from time to time.

    Top work T.
    Adored this mix. Selection is right up my street and some personal favorites of mine are in attendance. Mixing was top notch, Really enjoyed it man.
    I spilled out some thoughts and comments as I was listening. Really impressed dude.

    01] Break - Tell Me[Eastside]
    Oh mate. you have your own voice-over malarkey. Swish.

    02] Lenzman - Starz (feat. Kevin King) [Metalheadz]
    Nice mix. Little bit sudden on the bass switch but other than that its was wicked.
    03] Die & Break - Grand Funk Hustle[Digital Soundboy]
    Another cracker of blend. Really smooth and clean, just the way I like it. Top tune too, not heard this for a while.

    04] Commix - Faceless (Marcus Intalex remix)[Shogun Audio]
    Another banger I've not heard for a while. Selector. Nicely brought in and a clean bass switch. Well played.

    05] T.E.E.D - Garden (Calibre Remix) [Nice Age]
    RKO outta nowhere. Vocals sitting really nice over faceless. Tricky to pull off with Garden as they usually sit too quiet in the mix.

    06] Holdtight - Shortlist[Integral]
    Tricky one to eq this mix. You did well tho. Got those drums sitting nice together. Lil less treble on Garden imo, just to take a lil more edge off.

    07] Hybrid Minds - Starlet (feat. Mimi Page) [Spearhead]
    Missed this mix - got lost in the vibe

    08] Spectrasoul - Always[Shogun Audio]
    Sweet. Nice and clean.

    09] Alix Perez & Sabre - Solitary Native [Shogun Audio]
    Such a tune. Goosebump business.
    10] Andy Skopes - Reading By The White Lake[Utopia]
    Lovely mix - And what a tune. Deep vibes. One for my wantlist.

    11] Icicle - Arrows [Shogun Audio]
    Thought Arrows was a lil too loud in the mix before the bass switch. Other than that it was swish.

    12] Survival - Mistakes[Dispatch]
    Ahhh perso tune this one.

    13] Calibre & High Contrast - Mr Majestic [Signature]
    Not bad at all. I didn't think it was going to work before I heard it. Fooking awesome dude.

    14] Calibre - Waterfall[Signature]
    Cheeky lil blend. Nice.

    15] Commix - Change on me [Metalheadz]
    Perfect.

    16] Spectrasoul - Buried [31 Records]
    Fuck yes. Best blend so far IMO. Loving this man.

    17] Break & Die - Slow Down VIP [Symmetry]
    Hmmm. good luck, waiting to see what this sounds like. U gonna double like a brave naive child or just into it..*waits patiently. Phew.. I saw a double going horribly wrong there.

    18] Commix - Painted Smile[Free Download]
    Awesome build up. FUCK FUCK FUCK. That's big man. Slow down's drums can be a bitch. This mix is great man. Those piano rolls over it.. So nice.

    19] Cyantific - Empty Streets[Hospital]
    Cool. Well brought in. Can be difficult to mix as the energy level drops but u placed it well to avoid that. *Tips cap.

    20] dBridge & Calibre - Ponderosa[Exit Records]
    Another perso of mine. Well EQ'd here, the piano stabs don't quite go together that well. U mixed it to hide the worst and emphasize the best parts.

    21] Sunchase - 420[Metalheadz]
    Must have been doing some work. Completely missed this.

    22] Calibre - Archive[Metalheadz]
    Cracking. Liked the placement so you could use Archive's bass stabs but without fucking it up.

    23] Ivy Lab - Baby Grey [Critical]
    Who doesn't go potty for this tune. Well EQ'd to get it sitting nice.

    24] Phil Tangent - Rinjani [Integral]
    Great blend. Personally I would have been tempted to bring this in only when the intro drums cut out. Can be tricky to pull off especially as a new tune drops when you were expecting the previous. Done right tho you can really give a surprise WOW to the mix.

    25] Artificial Intelligence - What you Had (Lenzman remix)[Metalheadz]
    Sitting perfect - Those vocals have got loads of room to breathe.

    26] Calibre - Wilderness[Signature]
    Smooth. Simple. Effective.

    27] Smote - Born to my Soul[Fokuz]
    Yes, Those piano stabs sound lovely against Wilderness, A little bit loud in the mix but nothing major.

    28] Seba - Face to Face[Secret Operations]
    Seba = Don.

    29] Mark System - Waiting for a Meaningful Title[Exit Records]
    Nice placement. EQ'd those drums to sit nice. Always difficult when doing a roller > stepper combo.

    Nice mix, fits today's weather perfectly :)

    Some tracks are not a 100% my cup of tea, but I really enjoyed the rolling vibe in the second half of the mix!
