ok, here is my personal account of my experience from listening to this "essential mix" (whose name, btw, i find somewhat misleading, as it uses another show's name and may make people think this was an actual EM...)

the intro was very well picked and definitely made me curious about where this set would lead to. i found it quite impressive and also the transitions between the instrumental/ambient tracks were well done, even though (i think) not perfectly in key. maybe this first phase of the set couldve been a tad bit shorter, but then the set soon picks up and moves to nice melodic trance. it then makes a nice progression towards more energy and finally reaches a point which i felt was the climax and made me get the :choon: smileys out.

however, this was then abruptly interrupted by track #14... while such an intentional "drop" and break in flow may be a nice effect in a set (and i definitely remember some sets whcih perfectly incorporate such an effect) and also the track itself may be well suited for this purpose, the set then fails to get back up to speed afterwards. unfortunately i felt the set didn't recover until the very end, as it continued to be dominated by lower bpm and less energetic tracks.

respect for the attempt to imitate the style of certain older EMs, but this is quite a steep slippery slope to climb and the challenge is quite tough (and of course this is just my personal view). the first half was quite excellent - the second part by itself was fine too, only the sequence made it somewhat awkward. i hope this provides some useful feedback for part 2 :)

Thank you DFX for this feedback....yess im with you, the second half had should been the first and the first the second ..then it had matched more perfect.

Generally im happy with that, some transitions were hard to do with the cdj 100 coz of the pitch bar...i need 400 soon :mml:

it definatly helps me for part TWO where i will for sure think about your feedback and for sure i will PLAN it before doing it....

This one was just...take some cds..put them in...yess mix it...oh sounds okay :mml:

Thanks for feedback

Nice tracks, good set, great mix. The intro was a little too long for me, meaning you picked up the beat a little late, but that is just my taste. The intro was very good, nicely selected track, momentum keeps going until one point when it drops again. Overall, very good.
