Your reviews of the mix
This mix was off the hook!!!!! it took me on a journey into darkness!!!! i love it....i want to hear this all the time!! keep it coming...cheers
Boring, Bring on DJ Spen!!!!!!!!
What a laugh, i've just discovered the essential mix online. Why didn't anyone tell me about this before?? I used to feel old and out of touch before i listened to radio slave. not anymore. deep and messy. love it. more please.
another excellent ess mix, deep, dark and dirty. Spot on radio slave.
had me reaching for the pro plus, not the lazers. a mix that never went anywhere!
Wow. Never heard Radio Slave much before. LOVING IT. Fantastic moody, trippy grooves. Thanks, Radio One. Great mix!
Awesome. Absolutely awesome. Shimmering vocals and gorgeous strings against a continuous backdrop of relentless, hypnotic tech-house. Without doubt, this a special sound.
Very good one!
Is it possible to get it on my hard drive?
Just when I thought I had heard the best EM yet, this one comes along! Thanks! Radio 1 makes working from my home office a real treat (and drowns out my irritating and noisy neighbours). Cheers!
wow! great mix
nice and dark
starts off great and ends brillantly.
hopefully you'll come for conference! wmc
Wow - fantastic EM - this guy knows how to mess with your head - brilliant!
I enjoyed all the mix but the last half hour it has been amazing....a deep minimal mix like Dan Ghenacia's one!!!
Another great Em but I have to say that 2007 best, for now, it's still Gabriel Ananda's mix!
I'm not a happy bunny, what is this music all about? Where is it meant to take us to? There is no journey aprt from the one to boredom!! It's rubbish and Radio One and Pete Tong need to sort it out.. put me on i could do better!!
Very Good Mix, But not a good as his earlier radio slave mix when he was teamed up with serge santiago (followed their stuff ever since)- Now that was a classic es mix super funky Black eyed peas intro if you are able to hear that one give it a listen puts this one to shame.........x
over the years there has been some boring EM's but this one takes the biscuit,fell asleep half way through,cmon radio 1,get a grip
bit of a show-off mix, right??? but the tunes were good so can't blame him for playing 80% his records. should have played the outstanding Kate Bush remix thou. check out the Made In Menorca LP as ReKid.
Starting pretty decent, but then builds up and gets
a slutty percusive feel. Not bad Radio Slave. Not bad at all!
The absense of Serge Santiago was too noticeable. Prefered the previous Radioslave EM.
Quality with a capital Q.
This has to be one of the best e mixes I've ever heard.
Will be hard pushed to beat this one.
Seconding the call to get Tocadisco on the show!!
I really enjoyed so far the mix, its twisted, dark and fun. I hope this quality continues in the EM 2007. Congratulations from South America

Incredible Essential Mix, this is one of my all time favourites already. Sublime from start to finish - thank you Matt =D
Unique and creative...that goes to show that music tracks are never outdated...subject to how you use them in a mix. Awesome...think he is becoming one of my favorite DJs.
Amazing mix, thx for Matt and for Tong & Radio1!!!
This is a mix!its got some dirty minimalistic beats!!loving this mix!need more stuff like this..right up my street!!
He seems to be a big fan of his own work! Nothing wrong with a little self promotion I guess. Enjoyed the mix.
Fantastic essential mix - deep melodic grooves building and weaving.. Proper payoffs not cheap thrills - quality throughout. Highlights have to be "Screaming Hands" into "Serotone" (made for each other) and the last track "U Askin" - this is a keeper.. Well done Radio 1 - great selection!
mixes,for me 5 stars... mr. tong i have a request! try to bring DJ VIBE from Portugal,no one from Portugal play in your show,we have one of the best djs in the entire world,please bring him to play,congratulations for your show,PEACE
Exellent.Could be a winner in 2007. Take care.
Amazing Set!!!! much respect!
Could anybody tell me which track is playing around the 40 minute mark?
Excellent Essential Mix from someone whom i otherwise might not of taken to much notice of. Keep them coming Radio1.
Truely epic in all proportions , i am a 34 year old trance / psychadelic / techno / breaks / texan rock head . Really reminds me of my mind changing times of 1999/2000 when i was trancing dancing to class acts like laurant garnier / guy ornadel / scott bond / danny rampling / and of course the master himself Sir Paul Oakenfold - just to name a few . Thankyou Pete been looking for that next generation of sound in guidance for my own movement into production and djing and thanks to you i have found it - Matt Edwards - radio Slave ( homegrown talent ) will go into my archive along with this essential mix as again a time changing moment.
SEE YER .
Hard and mind blowing. Can make your brain explode, so be careful...
I gotta say i'm a big fan of radio slave and this EM is good to my ears...it has many dirty little sounds that make me enjoy it,keep on the good work.
I guess I was in the mood for minimal techno as this wasent too bad. I wish that last 30 minutes had been the basis of the entire mix but there were some great tracks throughout.
This mix really got me groovin' and was downright wonderful.
sick and slick !!!!! This is what the ES mix show is all about - pushing out quality.
Im looking forward for someone who can beat radioslave for my ES mix of the year!!
awseom essential mix from the man behind so many great tune...
awsome to see him play so many of his own mixes and tunes...
can't wait to listen to it again...
Wow...total late night rave. 4:40am sun's about to come up. only 60 or so left on the dance floor...sliding around unknowingly kicking water bottles and stomping flyers into the floor. Second and third room light and sound guys breaking down their grear. This is the time frame I would expect to hear this set. Nothing but uderground. Some mixed tracks that quite possibly should never be heard...but then again it would be true underground.
Amazing Mix, Matt never seems to disappoint and I believe he is THE best remixer in the underground today. Thank you "Essential Mix" for turning out some amazing mixes so far this year!
Another great dinner party mix....but it is Saturday night! We need something more than this minimal bleepy blurpy eww i'm so cool because my music is left field stuff. Oh well, at least Eddie Halliwell's show rocks.
WOW! deep deep deep, wrespect 2 RADIOSLAVE.
have not heard of radio slave but it was an awesome essential mix...very unique sort of say...pete we need a tocadisco or a funkagenda mix!!give it to us please!
Oh my god!!!! I' m falling for this wicked E.M... it' s rocking and hypnotizing me... So goooooooooooddd... The greatest???
Class mix. Excellent start of 2007. Gabriel Ananda was already very good, but this is even better!
This mix had me from the start. Loved the remix of Faze Action's classic! Mesmerising... Good work R1.
Outstanding mix! Radio SLave has been a fav of mine so i'ts great to see him on the Essential mix!
whooooooh what a set,big tracks from Radioslave dj,incredible mixes,for me 5 stars... mr. tong i have a request! try to bring DJ VIBE from Portugal,no one from Portugal play in your show,we have one of the best djs in the entire world,please bring him to play,congratulations for your show,PEACE
Great EM to wake up too on a Sunday morning after a long night. One of the better talents I have heard yet. Look forward to hearing MORE!!!
Excellent one of the best i have heard for a long time the king of the re-edits and remixes one of the best english producers out there
more like this please !
world class!deep trippy and relentless beats.The man is awesome
This mix wasn't very exciting, to be honest. Sounded like Radio Slave was on autopilot a lot of the time, perhaps in another room doing drugs? Anyway, it couldn't hold a candle ot Trentemoeller's Mix from last year, even though it contains "Moan."
This mix was very reminiscent of a Tiefschwarz or Mike Dear session. Deep, a little moody atmospherically in places but chugs along nicely. In other words it was great!! Real grown up dance music. I love stuff like this. Cheers Radio 1. Can I suggest having an EM done by Swayzak (excellent eclectic, deep electronica as well).
Wow! What an awsome Mix!! Tight, steady and phat. Radio Slave is great!!!
