Daniel, Sweden
Anticipations were sky-high, and they were met! High contrast is no doubt the biggest name in liquid drum n bass (to me atleast), and this set was just mindblowing! more DnB on the EM!

Ricardo - Sao Paulo
Outstanding DnB name.

not bad mix

Kenneth - Oslo, Norway
Brilliant set!

Damo, Bourne, England

high contrast is rsome!!!


Gareth (Gaz) (Worcester)
Top notch action fair play! This is why i love britain. Keep it going pete. I love the fact that it goes from music like digweed and sasha to high contrast. High Contrast also proves that you dont have to be a teenager with an attitude to listen to D&B. Very clean set and i love it. I love this country because we aint all listening to same type of music. America is heaverly influanced by rap but in this country we have a massive choice of what we want to listen to. I love it and shows like this prove that fact. I say keep Britian ecleftic and this show does that. Fair play to HC for another out right banger. I love music and the way it can take you places and make you feal. The essential mix is one of a kind please keep it that way and keep the variation going. Thank you for this pleasure to listen too. Peace

Andrew ,Moscow
His mix was incredible in 2003.This year he blowed me up ))) Many many thanks and all Hospital Cru.Guys you are the best,see you in Moscow...

Ben, London
Amazing mix from contrastshowcasing whats good about drum and bass

Oliver Groves, London
Absolutely blazing!'Mistabishi - She lied' what a track!Big up Mr.Contrast!

James, Leicester
Wow. Just Wow. Definitely a contender for EM of the year. He just chooses his tunes so well, it all sounds like High Contrast in the first half!. But then went completely mad in part 2. And those remixes of well known tunes - Lil Louis, Kanye, Daft Punk and what about Axwell (the latter previously heard on the end of Pete Tong's Hot Mix on Sep 28th) - well he's done it again (remember Spaced Invader)! More D&B on Radio 1! It's such a shame Fab & Groove have been pushed back to 2am on Saturday, we need more of this music not less.

Jeff, USA
great mix, I cooked 3 dozen muffins while listening to it
