Your reviews of the mix

great that radio one have finally come to their senses and got these dons in. can we have less of the commercial handbag and more of a proper music ethos permeate throughout the station please! there's a world of brilliance out there its your opportunity to take a lead and play it. this is a great start, superb mix. thank you :x
slim. brixton

Essential Mix of the year? you must be joking!!!

all cool things come from up north - like this norwegian mix. a nice blend, a relaxed yet latently excited endless tune, which is how i like to feel about life. love the fleetwood mac remix!
nathalie, tokyo

Charlie Ottawa Canada

Definetely the mix of the year so far!!
Manvers, Nottingham

Olly, East London

Fleetwood Mac never sounded so good :)
Outer Space

It's always as good as possible with essential mix. I enjoy your music pete. Thank you.
philippe - le havre - france

Excellent Mix... has it lulls, but really makes up for it in other parts (i.e. the delicious fleetwood mac track.) great vocal selections!
Joey -Miami

Spacedisco at its most beautiful, groovy and elegant form. Fantastic dreamy music. Nice mix boys!!!
HH, Oslo

Soild mix that flows and brings the listener to a few different places. Well done indeed.By chance, does anyone know more about this track they played?M E ‘Rnb Drunkie’ (Golf Channel)
Daniel from Toronto, Canada

wow, simply wow... best essential mix 2007 so far.
Archie, Hamburg

absolutely stellar mix. very classy. lindstrom and prins thomas' EM is classic and forward-thinking at the same time. this is dance music for adults, not fist-pumping E-tards! :)
chris, kansas city USA

Amazing set. These guys know what's up!
Gabe, Wash DC

hans peter played for us at a little party we did in leeds three years ago he blew us away with his cosmic disco sound now he and his partner in crime prins thomas get the recognition they deserve to a mass audience well done boys x the leeds disco alliance craig christon

hypnotic mix in a way :)
Ivars, Riga

Absolutely stunning musical journey from beginning to end. Pete Tong says it best when he states that it's a contender for mix of the year.
Peter Horak, Mississauga, ON, Canada

Yup, you're correct Mr. Tong...this has been the best essential mix of the year so far....nice to once again here guys who stick to what they like and are known for rather than chasing after the latest trend...truly "essential"....god job guys!!!!

Tomasz - Poland

OMG - Essential mix of the year? Get your ears tested Pete.. Sounded like "Buck Rogers Techno". Boring & Rubbish.
John - Dublin - RoI

BORING with a capital B.Not sure how this could ever be thought of as a possible mix of the year. If this mix were to represent 2007, 2007 would have to be the worst year in electronic music ever.
Khristopher in Toronto, Canada

omfg this is sooooooo gooooood!
bobby badfingerz - belgium

Original, creative, melodic - top shelf work boys!! Great to hear something that strays from the mainstream on the EM..... especially when it sounds this good. Had previously never heard of these two but hope to hear a lot more after this!!!!
