Great mix from Hernan, enjoyed it!!

nm, leicester
Hernan is one of the few guys left that is still playing as tongy described "lush" house music (nick warren is another that comes to mind). the stuff that send tingles up your spine and brings a smile to your face! i have stayed away from essential mixes for ages cause they arent as good as the legendary sets by diggers, sasha et al.however, this mix had me looking forward in great anticipation and hernan sure as hell didnt fail to deliver. true classic prog style. beautiful!the only drawback being that he has slipped in small doses of the (in my opinion) awful minimal electro hash here and there! guess ill just have to live with it!Well done Hernan for reminding us of what progressive house music is all about! i wish sasha and digweed would go back to playing stuff like this!

Woody, Chester le St
