Your reviews of the mix
Very disappointed with this mix was expecting great things too, having seen him rip up DC10 and Sankeys.
Great set, as expected. Some of the tracks did not flow to well. Luciano & Thomas Melchior ‘Father’ what a track though. i give it 4/5
great mix!!!best of 2008!!!!;)
Tooooo deep from my point of view, but nevertheless some people might enjoy hearing this EM... saludos!
Though I am a fan of what Luciano does, I initially didn't like this mix. However, you need patience with it. Those who expect their techno to hit them over the head immediately will dislike what he is doing here, namely subtleties and building up subtleties. The more I listen to this, the more I appreciate it.
LUCIANO ROCKS!!!!GOOD MUSIC
i had high hopes for this mix but was very dissapointed, the vocal records were terrible, there were some good tracks but all in all this was very very boring, this just goes to show how media hype really works,
Viva Chile! From los gringos de los Estados Unidos!
Best minimal DJ ever Weee :X Lucinao is just the best
Initially i thought, "What on Earth is this? This is very progressive, electronic and a bit random". But after listening to the mix a couple of times, it has really growed on me. It made for a very relaxing, light and easy to listen to couple of hours. Very chilled out, but each song had its own deeper meaning and unique sounds, instead of every song blending into each other with no sense of purpose and progression. All i can say is, welcome to the essential mix, and will be looking forward to hearing another mix from you in the future!
Wow... 5 mins in and I think we could have a winner!
Some interesting moments but overall a pretty boring Cadenza showcase. Expected a little more from him and he ended up playing it very very safe
This is a top class mix, the best for ultimate minimal music lovers
Loving minimal at the moment, would be good to have more on radio1
What do you mean M83 "Title unknown"?? It is M83 "Teen Angst (luciano mix)"...
wow, it´s great to see such a great DJ on the essential... i lived in the states for 5 years- so i heard about your show... i met that guy loooong time ago in Santiago, nice dude...Long life essential mix...
Not enough variation, love L'delay, Father and the M83 track at the start but just not dynamic enough with too many mixing records that are just tracks, how bored would you be if you heard this out? Luciano is a good producer but this was just dull, I'm afraid it's just a case of emporers new clothes. Minimal can be fantastic, just listen to a wighnomy brothers mix, I don't understand why Luciano and Villalobos are so revered.
Just 15 tracks? I know that minimal tends to run long, but is this a misprint?
A minimal eargasm!!!! I loved it... even if he only played like 10 songs =)
Fantastic electronic set!! It will be amongst the best mixes of 2008!! Keep playing special music to our ears!! Cheers!!
Was it just me or did that mix seem finish too soon? Just as i was getting into it. Maybe a bit too minimal for me. I wouldn't mind hearing a longer set from Luciano just to see where it ends up.
sorry but this out of date. shame because he is a god!! this should have been soooo much better. he is amazing live!!!
Luciano goes for the money and simply plays loads of tracks on his own label to get PRS loot. massively disappointing...sss
worst luciano mix ever
Yeaahh)'Father' it's realy cool
Bring it on! Funtastic mix. Love it!!!!!!!!!!!
not a big fan, but impressed w/ this mix. refreshing. mnml and deep.
cheers pete for sharing this ... nice 1 son ...
Bravo, that was a nice mix all the way through
I haven't hear it yet. But having seen the playlist first, I'll certainly be prepared for a 56% dose of Luciano- and Cadenza-related tracks.
I'm so burned out on this minimal crap. Did all of the DJs forget what fun is? Where are the party jams? I don't need to have a life altering emotional experience every time a "world class" DJ hits the decks... What I need is for my ass to have no choice but to leave me in my seat, disconnect from my body, and shake all over the floor.
this first track is AMAZING!!! WOW!
hes forgotten half of his tracklist ,cause theres no way he only played 7 and a half records in an hour,right? lol,utter mince
Nice mix...best EM since Umek.Would have liked a few more tracks crammed in though. More minimal/tech stuff please radio1.You need to get Monika Kruse and Ellen Allien to do EM's...Their the best of the bunch at the mo.
Much anticipated EM!! excellent tracklist!
I no want be a bad boy....but this is talent?I really have my mind open to absolutly all dance music.........but sorry!!! not to this.Really boring set, sorry Luciano, nothing personal....but i repeat really boring set.....Absolutly boring ESSENTIAL MIX MR TONG !!!
This mix is sooooo great!! Minimal tech+deep house sounds, love it! Luciano is real legend DJ!!Thanks Pete for providing this! Hope to hear Chaim or Guy Gerber in this year`s EM also:)
Brilliant. That's all I can say. A 2 hour mix and only 17 tracks! This is what the essential mix is all about!
simply amazing !!! loved it more techno please :) sven vath , ricardo villalobos , dc10/ cocoon style e-mixes
Good tradition in the beginning of the year some minimal tunes to be player. It will be even greater if you do that in the end of the year also. Nothing to say about Luciano and his masterpiece except for: outstanding entertainment for the ears and the mind :>
good show minimal techno is great i like the first track the best.
A fantastic Mix from one of the best producers an DJ´s on this planet. I love it.ID = Nina Simone - Sinnerman (Felix Da Housecat´s Heavenly House Mix)
A very good essential mix. Luciano has a very distinct and unique style to his sets. Always a joy to listen to, beautifully crafted lovely techno. Thumbs up all round! When oh when are you going to let us buy these sort of mixes on CD in the shops. Radio 1 would make a killing selling stuff like this.
very good job!!! it's a great mix!!!
Truly amazing mix..Luciano's making me like minimal all over again!
Woah! Haven't heard a mix this good for years. This is an incredible mix and I am a very difficult person to impress.
Awesome, luciano's sets are so uplifting! cant wait to see him again soon!!
This essential mix sucks....old releases off his own label,"cutting edge" apparently...pah!
great essential mix:)
best sound ever!!!luciano is a hero!!!
What a HUGE disappointment. Why would Luciano turn out this completely pile of garbage??? Mixing was truly awful at times and the tracks??? You can almost excuse the first half as a retrospective but the club mix? Me thinks Luciano needs to buy some newer tunes FAST!
Super minimal, very intelligent, techy & sexy.Keeps ur body movin' all the way!Perfect!
Great artist, great traks and a awesome sound !
Quality mix.Hoping to hear Sven and Richie on the EM this year.
An Advert for Cadenza, nothing more.
Mix of the millennium!
