Your reviews of the mix

Well not the kind of electro i like most, but the very last song is really kicking. "Unknown, Unknown".. oh my freakin god.. anybody has this song? please please dig into the sound and tell me the songs detail.
Pepe@munich

Hi Steve! "stop" Luca Bacchetti remix, it's amazing!!!!!!
David Italy

Excellent sets by Seb Fontaine & Steve Lawler. Would like to get my hands on the last tune Steve Lawler played.
Jon Liverpool

Fantastic to hear Seb again, a blinding set! Steve Lawyer rocks aswell.
A Bournemouth

I can't believe they broadcast this instead of Desyn Masiello, Tongy or Carl Cox (who all shredded the place!) . These two guys were the soggy biscuits in a otherwise fantastic line up on a fantastic day. Both should retire I reckon. SHOUTS TO ALL THE FIT LONDON'ERS WHO MADE IT SUCH A BALL. C YA NEXT YEAR!
Gonzo, South London

I WAS THERE AND SEB RIPPED THE ROOF OFF TRUST ME!!! WHAT A SET I HAVE NEVER SEEN SO MANY PEOPLE GO NUTS!! PETE TONG WE THANK YOU FOR FOR THE ESSENTIAL TENT YOURE SET BLEW US AWAY.....BIG LOVE
mark berry in tunbridge wells

Very good sets that was the best trip ... Whit touch of electroooo, nice
Ignacio Aguirre chile santiago

Well, I was sorta looking forward to Seb Fontaine's set, but now going through it, it's full of yuck! Underworld...again? Jeez, how many e-mixes do we have from him where a track by them creeps in.....Ame's track is about as overrated as they come, the Outwork ,Seb/Jay P, and SK tracks are TERRIBLE - the vocals are just godawful...only saving grace being Reflekt's....house music's been given an electro slant which isn't too bad, but then when you throw in weak vocals (case in point...Kurd's "The Rub", suprised that didn't get played AGAIN), it's all just terrible......
Price

Seb Seb Seb. I think you've cracked it this time round mate. I lost the faith but now I'm born again. Steve Steve Steve - I have Never heard you play a bad set. unique and dashing. Inspiration to aspiring blood!! What is that white label????

Special One,kings Head

e - london

I was looking forward to hearing Seb but was a bit let down. Bit too Trancy for me to be honest. Steve L was quality but again there want much there that made me thing WOW! - enjoyed it overall but wasnt half as good as I had hoped for
Daz - Hants

Good to hear Seb again after a 2 year absence! Proved he can still deliver after all these years! Loving that Transatlantic tune! As For Mr Lawler the guy is flawless. An awesome two hours overall!
Martin - Surrey

Seb fontaine was on fire, Steve Lawler also very good. This is was a lot better than the last EM mix in Ibiza!
Jerry, Stoke

Two generic mixes. Lawler’s was marginally better due to being slightly more down-tempo, and bordering (but never really breaching) upon techno at parts. As this 'dirty', electro house sound is all encompassing at the moment, consequentially DJs who purvey this sound have to strive harder to make their sets unique. Sadly both DJs did not strive hard enough.
Tom, Bristol

first time i've heard Seb in ages, what a SET!
steffan longdon

Nice to hear the old legend Seb on the essential mix, quality!! Both sets awsome nice one Radio 1. ;0)
Pete In Bognor Regis

Why exactly is Seb no longer with Radio 1??? Impressive as always, and then Mr. Lawler to follow. The summer of 2006 will be one for the books indeed. Keep it up Radio 1!!!!

GROOVER -- NEW JERSEY

Was a bit warry of what Seb would sound like. Have gone a bit off him in recent years but saw him recently in Denver and really enjoyed it. I have to say that i enjoyed this set from SW4. Also enjoyed the set from Lawler. That last track was amazing and im gutted that it is listed as a white. Always enjoy the live sets.
Jim

I was there for Lawlers set. Amazing. When he dropped Mason the roof went off.
Pete, London

I'm living in the middle east at the moment so I'm missing all the great parties and festivals in the UK this summer. But I have to say a massive massive thank you to Tongy and Radio 1 for giving us such fantastic music and shows!! I've only got as far as three tracks into Seb Fontaine's EMix and all I can say is QUALITY!!!! Spine tingling stuff!! It's great to hear the crowd having a blast - wish I was there! I'm just about to finish work now but the rest of the show will be the first thing I listen to when I'm back in the office tomorrow!!! Thank you thank you thank you!!!! I don't feel so left out after all!!! Rock on!
Emma, Abu Dhabi, UAE

DJ Zander, Staffordshire.

Still a pleasure to listen Seb Fontaine & Steve Lawler !! Great job !! Tks to you guys my sunday is not too sad !!! Enjoy
Niko - Paris

Hi folks! Fontaine and Lawler did a great job for the Essential Mix! Nice to hear an Underworld classic again! Wicked!! It's good to catch a little bit of the atmosphere inside the location, but I think the cheering in the background throughout the 2 hours is sometimes a bit annoying. Anyway, thanks BBC Radio 1 for providing us with such fantastic electronic music!! In my opinion this is the best Internet music site! Cheers!
Heiko, Hamburg

Absolutely blinding, Lawler is something else, he has such an unique sound. I've seen him in clubs all across the world & he can work up a crowd anywhere. Loved every minute of his mix.
DAN. NORTHAMPTON
