great job Sebs!
johnny vancouver

That's why this guy is fully booked until August, and don't be surprised if he's in the top 20 of DJMAG next year. Can't wait to hear him Live :)
Partin, Kosovo

Killer mix.....It's good to see more dj's break out of the single genre stereotype (shell). Monotony must be broken to let true creativity blossom. A real dj is like a chameleon she or he should adapt and evolve without conforming.
dj Pablo Zaldivar New Orleans underground USA

Great stuff, quality mixing however wtf i can see that josh wink has been take off the upcoming shows list??????????????

Emre from Istanbul, Turkey

Great Essential Mix as always! Did something change that there needs to be an announcement over almost every song now? It kind of ruins the "mix" aspect of it...
Chris, USA

Wonderfuleger !

The best. I know that the Leger´s production is amazing. Also his older tracks are wonderful. We are looking forward to seeing him on Creamfields Central Europe!!!
Lopaka, Czech Republic

I feel almost sorry to admit that I was largely disappointed by this EM by Sebastien Leger. Sure there were some nice tunes in there, but overall pretty uninspiring.. Please bring the techno ala Chris Liebing..
Thijs, the Netherlands

excellent , one of the best mixes of the year by far !!
stevo glasgow

Awesome! I've just listened to the whole set at work and guess what - I didn't manage to complete any of the tasks given to me by the boss, so now he hates me. But who cares anyway, eh?
Lenka, Czech Republic

Great mix. I love it.
Uroš - Slovenia

How good was that!
Matt - Sydney

This mix was straight fire!
Hunter (South Korea)

I'm a massive fan of Sebastien Leger and his production work. His sets are amazing and I was pleased to hear you guys have recognised his talent and got him on here, this set was awesome! Off to hunt for the tracklist now!
Zoe Beesley, Surrey

Tasty set this one, 2hrs of good wonky House Tuneage. Certainly gets you movin' - Leger is on the ball! Tres Bien Radio 1!
Ellison, Manchester (UK)

sebastien is living here in amsterdam and i think it `s better that he moves otherwise he``s not getting old, you can hear it in the mix.......
martijn Amsterdam

it's hugeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!
siler, mexico city!!!!

Shane, Belfast

Listening to the show on the net.Great mix from a class DJ, BUT I was disapointed with the remix of Yeke Yeke even though Mory Kante's singing was nicely bought out.I reckon you can't ever beat the Harfloor Mix (and maybe shouldn't even try) anyway - guess I'm a bit traditional when it comes to this tune!
Pete, Bangkok Thailand

bad tunes but can't it be non stop dance the chattin is 2 long!!!!!!!!!!!!11
stacey south harow

great sounds from leger as usual. specially loved the intro and Terry Toner 'Eat The Positive track. Simply amazing. Keep em coming sebastian!
Jun, Sweden

saw this guy a couple of years ago at dance valley. he played early (before eric prydz i think)same sort of vibe. really involving without being anal. cant wait for the new tracks all sounds very proggy! just the ticket for a wet wednesday in bath....
simon bath
