Your reviews of the mix

That Dico Dodo tune packs one hell of a punch!Great stuff... loved it
TallRog Wroclaw, Poland

quality mix, be true by commix is one of the dnb tracks of the year 2007
Ben, London

The same as all of his sets banging buut nothing special. Not good enough to be on essential though,theres tons of better djs. Hes more of a producer

TC kills it... big up... more DNB pete... we need more DNB
john thompson, florida


Where's My Money - Jakes Remix is huge. Big up to TC - great mix which also represents what's happening in d&b clubs right now.

Not Important

know who deserves an essential mix? Nick SentienceA fully accomplished DJ, with 2 album releases, many special appearances on Frantic Euphoria, live shows recorded for Galaxy FM, most notably the Tidy Weekender(without a doubt the #1 dance event in the world, minus the fact its held in wales of all places).Also a string of high profile remixes including faithless' 'we come 1',& Storm's 'time to burn'.more recently has released a brilliant album 'Dance Planet' and has updated re-worked tracks of Strange world and Carte Blanche.i think he should be featured with his own essential mix this year.
N. Ireland hard dance

Get Lee Haslam back for another Essential mix, about time he featured again, true pioneer of hard dance

Alex James - you're just a little bit judgmental really aren't you? Or just plain mental? Your vitriolic response doesn't even make sense - if you hate hoodies, surely you love DNB as it give hoodies something to do other than stand around in the street making the view from your net curtains look untidy. People love DNB because it is the best music to dance to - go to a jungle night and be amazed by the energy filling the room when the DJ drops a heavy tune. By dancing I do mean dancing - you probably think dancing is trying to look innocuous and not spilling your drink whilst swaying around a bit to some bland mainstream house. Get a life - stop judging people based on your small minded prejudices, and open your mind to every possibility out there (like that not every hoody is a child with mental or emotional problems, and that mixes by DJs outside the world top 10 are occasionally worth listening to too). TC's mix is good, varied, but not really dark enough for my tastes. But then I think Ed Rush and Optical's 'Wormhole' is the best dance album ever (yes, even better than Leftield)
Nizm, Niztopia

Not my kind of thing at all, but each to their own. Any chance of hearing Bart Claessens or Giuseppe Ottaviani? Thanks radio1!
Keith De Lucci, Portadown, Northern Ireland

Nat from Fife, Scotland

uninspiring mixing...far 2 mashed together with no clear direction and the sounds of what are good tracks collide over the top of each other too muchunimpressive for such a good producer
toby, london

I'm loving this mix, gets pretty hectic in the second half!
Vaz from Leeds, UK

Rikki Humphrey, Wrexham

Dubstepraver BP Hungary

Jacksta Perth Australia

It was great. I'm trying to figure out what the tune that sounds like "Shorty what did you think when I put you down" is. Where did this TC guy come from? This mix has given me the inspiration to go make some music of my own.
Jay, UK

Tomi Bristol

Alan Tinsley, Liverpool UK

This is what DnB is all about.I saw TC live at the Custard Factory befor leaving the uk and it was stunnin'. The guy is a talent.
Dave in Melbourne

Adrian, San Juan. PR

I loved every minute of it, TC'S one of my favorite producers and this mix is in my opinion, the best Essential Mix of 2008! Great mixing that takes your ears on a journey through many styles of DNB including some wicked dubstep vibes to end the mix,brilliant!
Chocolate Chicago, USA

Drum and bass is for idiotic hoody morons. Children with mental and emotional problems. Rubbish. Grow up. Come on ES get back with the programme.
