Your reviews of the mix
WOW!!! I was there! The night was completely lethal! Nic Fanciulli put on an excellent warm up, but col hamilton was the highlight of the nite - his set was excellent! The mixing was tight, he never misses a beat - I go to lush every week to see "da other man like..." (Sasha bein "da man like...")Col is well up there with the best of them!!! Col's tune selection was also top notch, as always! He rocks that place every week and puts so much energy into his sets! He's best when he does a 5 hour set by himself! The atmosphere in lush is electric every week, I live for Lush on a saturday night! AMAZIN! And that lush soundsystem - gotta be one of thee best in the world??? can't be that easy tryin to listen to what's in the headphones when standing next to those booming subs in the DJ booth! I don't need to tell ya's about Pete Tong, you all know him - He's a legend, so's Col + Fanciulli. The whole night - 10/10 ++ HAPPY BIRTHDAY LUSH! (Well done Col!) Big up to Alan Simpson as well (and Nigel, we miss ya) Here's to the next 10 years of lush... :-)
say i listened to this on radio1 after the fact and i have got to say that everyhting in the music scene is getting so damn funky and this is the better of the sets that i have ever heard ...the beats are banging the groove is never ending please never quit lacing the world with rhythym you all are the beat of my heart....house breax dnb purists...keep it ever so real Peace Love Unity Respect
Well, what can i say. Fab! Unfortunetly I couldnt be at the mighty lush for that but seen the great tong in good ol edinburgh the friday before, bouncin off the wall a was at that lol Keep that awesome music up xx
Best nite in lush this year the place was boucing. Col did a great set and Pete Tong was fantastic brilliant nite.
Was a quality night at lush as usual. Age of love and last goodbye were by far my favourite tunes of the night. Last tune after essential mix ended was Phil Fuldner - the final btw.
My name is francisco...
I live in a hamlet called Areco's San Antonio and am to 180 km from all this music (cardinal Buenos Aires), which every so much I do my an elopement to Pasha dial to listening and flashear with good music.
For this and many things do not stop existing Essential mix!!!
You do not give birth Pete Tong!!!!
Un-Real. I have been going for over 5 years now, that is up there with the best! Col u are as good as they get, your mixing was better than tong, not that it was bad either! could not be there, as I live in cardiff now, but i had the radio up full, and all my welsh mates were jealous of the club we have! Brilliant - Keep her Lit Col... world class stuff!
Col done us proud and Pete was LUSHious as usual....Wonder night!!!!!!!!!
Squad of us headed up, absolutly amazing nite from start to finish, top tunes, top people, top club, nuff said!
HAPPY 10TH BIRTHDAY LUSH, MY THE NEXT 10+ BE JUST AS GOOD!
Set was Great, Col Dropping that Attck by Deepgroove - Ouch. Then Tongy's set nailed it. That DNA Track again. yes yes
quality mix guys, gotta love tongy. always delivers this is no exception!
BIG NITE, BIG TUNES AND THE BEST CROWD IN THE UK!! OI OI PS.. AND HOMEBOY HAMILTON
Good idea to invite Radio 1 to promote your 10th Birthday but not a good idea to have Colin Hamilton on the decks his mixing was some of the worst i have ever heard and maybe he should take up mixing cakes rather than two records. Thank God Pete tong took over and restored the Radio1's listeners ears or a law suit would be on the cards. Tong=9.5- Hamilton=DNQ. There is of my chest, few...
Wow what mixing!! Col really is still as bad today as he was back 1995 when I was at Uni up there, man what skill does it take to play a record and wait until it ends and fades out to bring in another one. At least his choice of music has slightly improved from the crap he used to play back then. Still Lush is usually a great laugh many brain cells killed in that place
VIP - i think so!!! was there lookin down on pete tong! best nite in a long time!!
plus cuban brothers rock!
great nite, nic should have been on later tho in place of col. nice tribute to Nigel.. keep the big nights coming.. we love it.
What a night that was im still feelin the effects! Fantastic tune selection by both col and pete and what about nic fanciulli!? absolute legend! Happy birthday lush STAKE IT OUT
maxwell wat wod u no about mixing col shoud be playin all over the place. if u went 2 lush ever or week u wod no hi good he is. 10/10
Excellent Night, pete was really throughing it out there!
Been hittin lush 4 the past 5yrs or more an its never let me down once it brings the best Dj's from all over the world to in my opinion an many others the best club in the uk!!!
Jus a pitty all u listeners out there didnt hear fancuilli rockin the place!!!!
what a night! great way to celebrate 10 years of the best club in the uk. col's set was top class, hard to find an average track anywhere in his set. tong wasn't too bad either, few decent track from old pistol pete also. all in all a super night! here's to ten more!
Cant really remember most of the night, but from wot everyone here is saying, it was a class night, nice one.
Always a pleasure, never a chore!!! Keep the big nights coming Lush!!
both mixes wre ok nothing special.i think lush has done a superb service over the last decade with attracting the big djs and the variety in genre.The crowd are electric but i feel its unique to them only in the fact of its kind of inbreaded club.i choose the gallery london as it is cosmopolitan and has a bit of class to, plus the best line ups going.sorry lush fans.......
That is the best set i've ever heard. Col hamilton was great but my favourite DJ is the whole wide world, pete tong, was super dooper. I heart Lush!
Wow, 2 days on and this still gets turned up very loudly. The last three trancier tracks of Col's set were awesome. I haven't heard Age of Love for so long....
I thought Tongy was good and i'm sure the tracklist missed what for me was the best tune of the night - Paul Woolford - Erotic Discourse.
awesome tunes, i love listening to the essential mix everyweek...but sometimes pete you have to stop talking!!! the second tune on colin hamiltons set is wicked.
The Mighty Lush! Travelled from the South, whole place mental, never fails to amaze. People swingin from the rafters. One of the greatest clubs on the planet. Lush Gold at the end. Unbelievable. Nice one guys!
I felt compelled to post because Pete has redeemed himself after the Ministry of Sound mix. This is more like what we expect from a living legend. I just wish he would shut up and not talk over the tracks during these live essential mix sessions.
The mighty Lush in Portrush! The place jus rocks every time i go der..sat nite has 2 b d best nite ive ever had up der YYYEEEEEHHAA!Wat about col's 3rd tune unbelievable!!!!! Roll on Carl Cox on the 17th
Another great essential mix, Lush reminds me of the old atmosphere of Cream Annex days it sounded electric! Thanx Pete Tong for inspiring a generation to dance and appreciate music. But boy what a belter of a track is the last one played by Mr Hamilton-i need it for my sets-outstanding and sexy!!!
Party on Pete-thank you!!!
Lovin it, cant wait for summer 06 Mambo Cafe!!!
I recon the mix could of had abit more of a spark but still it was sweet! The Irish are always up for avin it large!
Nice 1 keep the tunes pumpin!
Funny the fact that theres anotha guy Livin in marbella!
Here mate pete tong, rodger sanchez etc. PTO.Banus Summer 06
What an amazing mix and some fantastic new tracks from Mr Tong. Bodyrox yeah yeah what a remix!!!!
Hello? Can anyone read this??? Fisrt time in Lush! and I must say I am converted. Can't believe I wasted 10 years of my life listening to and playing rubbish techno, trance is tha way forward!!!! Oi Oi!!!
wat a cracker nite i was there and i loved it think u radio 1 get fergie to do a live 1 lol. i travel up every other week and ive never had a bad nite yet. wer not brazil, wer northern ireland. bigget up for the larne crew
Had a great night once again in the mighty lush. Pete was very good in the hour he played before went live. Fanciulli was excellent. great night all round, well done radio1 and lush!
Lush, amazing as ever, Thanx Col and Pete for the class A mixes. A nite to remember.
Just got in the door in time to see the Cuban Brothers, wow, they were very entertaining! Would definitely like to see them again. Never had a bad night in Lush, that was the first time for me in 2 or 3 years - Pete Tong was fab - Loving Lush and Radio One!!!
turned on,,and it had thinking of the good ole tunes we used to know,,,,,,,,,the place seemed ramming,,,col hamilton seems to know what hes doing!!!Tongy will always blast out pure tunes!!!!
what a phat mix I love the live one its great when you can here. that samurai is amazing i need that tune.
RVC mate, super col's set was not out of this world. It was a typical norma set that he plays all the time.Tong should have been on for the two hours.
unbeleaveable my son un real forget about the judge stroll on haha wasnt at lush thou wouldif loved 2 go skint , but this mix un real again keep up the wonderful work ....
This mix was great!
Col's choice of tracks were nicley put together but his mixing was a bit poor. (I love Tongys polite interruption about the language aww!!)
Pete's choice of tracks were also very gd but starting off a set with 'baby beat box' was a big mistake. that track reminds me of old garage!
appart from that nice mix. 7/10!!
MR TONG-NU ELECTRIC NO MATTER WHAT,,,HOW FILTHY IS THAT TRACK,WHAT A VIOLENT MONSTER THAT IS,U CERTIANLY HAD THE PLACE JUMPING TO THAT.I WAS IN THE MOSH PIT,GREAT ATMOSPHERE GREAT MUSIC...APART FROM THE BIG FIGHT AT THE SIDE OF THE DANCEFLOOR AT 12.30
Wow, just logged on for the first time, ever. Where have I been? What have I been missing, this is excellent.
Please say hello to my son Thomas, we are loving your stuff.
wihs i was there, sounded like the place was going nuts. as for the mixing, both did good. very happy to hear age of love suddenly turn up.
Lethal nights craic.. what the R1 listeners didn't hear was Lush Gold after the radio show, this really lit the place up..
Nice tribute to Nigel W.
Col's Tracklist looks good i'll have to give it a listen should of went.
the night was good, but it could have been a bit better if nic faliculli was on instead of hamilton,
I was there, came from banbridge an hour an a hlf journey an it was well worth it, an amazin night, thanx radio 1 4 maken it happen!!
Cols Mix was amazing, as where Pete's tunes! Cracker Essential Mix!
Travelled up last minute on the Sat, in terrible rain and snow, but was well worth it!
Don't think i've ever seen Lush rock like it! :)
Pity all the lisenters didn't get to hear the whole night - mates were so jealous I was there :)
pure magic, nothing less then what i expected!!!!!
lush is one of the best clubs in the world and col knows what makes a crowd move
class act, pete tong was super col was out of this world
Lush. My spiritual homeland. Unfortunate couldnt be there. Was there in soul.
Happy Birthday guys. Turn it the **** up
Absolutely Parful, me and my mate came the whole way up from belfast, stopped at 7 chippies on the way there in different towns so didnt get in until late. Petey Tong blew me away, couldnt believe there was a chippy sellin food in lush! either. Great night all round, yum yum!!! Burger and Chips, nuff said!!
Oh and the music was top notch!!
great night the mighty lush never lets you down
it was amazing. rocking set.had the crowd goin mad. v impressed!
aye was a leaful nite wan the best nites i had up there yet!!! Would love to see more of pete tong there!
the best nite in a long time the hole place was rockin
far too much talking over the music by tong and that irish bloke. and why do they always speak to random clubbers whenever there's a live broadcast?? it should be all about the music... tunes were okay - how's about some drum and bass sometime?
Yeeeeeeeeeha! This mix was crazy! Really cool. Peace to everyone!
I've been going to lush for a few years now (around 5 years) and it hasn't let me down once. Pumpin tunes every time if you don't find yourself dancing at some point of the night there something seriously wrong lol..
shockin nite col hamilton's a ledgend rocking nite pete was good 2 great nite !
Had an outstanding night, Col Hamilton set for the Essential Mix was the best of the night.. great tunes from the man himself! Nic Fanciulli's set was also outstanding he was on to early thou.. but he set the night up perfectly.
Lush! is the best thing to happen to ireland since Guinness......
some nites craic! stick er out!
Really enjoyed listening to the essential mix this week. Col Hamilton was very good, his tune choice rocked. Made want to be there! Pete Tong is probably one of my favourite jocks, i like the music he plays, but i am unsure if he has heard of phrasing? His mixing really does let him down. All in all though a great listen.
what a nite..brilliant tunes...lots of hotties..and of course radio 1..wat a mix in norn iron's best club LUSH
I was there at lush as it is only 3 miles down the raod from me and it was amazing the man is a wounder on the decks just not as the judge i think yeeehhhhaaaa!
