Your reviews of the mix

I was expecting 2 hours of hard house - one track after another - but this was brilliant and skillfully put together. I can see why he's won awards recently. Bangin!

I'm sad to say, but this is one the worst EM's i have ever heard. If this is what we have to look forward to then i am concerned about the future of the music i love so much.

drlongpants mansfield

It's always good when a mix reveals a bit about what the DJ is like as a person. It's clear from this mix that Alex Kidd is an insane lunatic with no mind.Great stuff.
Donny C

shocking!! Duno how you got where you are as you cant mix 4 toffee and you have a rubbish selection of tunes. You are proof that it aint what you no its who you know!!!
paul tutill from middlesbrough

banging!well didnt expect anything less.really interestig mix though.good to see the kidd playing a slightly different style.just hope he doesnt go all halliewell on us and forgets his bosh dare they try to test dj alex kidd!
adam gallacher SCOTLAND

he played outstanding never lets us downOBEY THE KIDD
Holmesy Belfast

One word...awful...the Kidd is a talented DJ, but I will look forward to his maturation to a better genre...I remember when harddance/hardcore was relegated to the 5:30 a.m. slot at every party...
Ryan, Arizona, USA

Top mix from the kidd as ever!!! was surprised to hear some minimal from him but was impressed all the same, absolute banging mix! OBEY THE KIDD!!
Jimmy, Derby

Some decent tracks but that type of mixing doesn't do music like 'moan' and 'china girl' any justice. 'In white rooms' was never meant to be played at that speed, it's a near enough perfect piece of music, it doesn't need everything else going off over the top. There's just way too much going off in this mix, it's hard for the ears to concentrate on what they're supposed to be listening to. I appreciate the DJ is trying something different and for a self proclaimed hard dance DJ that's pretty commendable I just didn't think it worked.
Daniel, North

1 word UNBELIEVABLE you have definetly gained a new fan an nxt time your at the arches in glasgow ill be there to watch you tear it up
gaz from glasgow

this was good. i've always been of the house persuasion, but liking the hardstyle! i've been listening to kutski also and seem to be getting more and more into hardstyle. the mixing wasn't the best, but there's a "live" feel to it which i like. good stuff.
Mr Big, Peterbra

AAAAAAARRRRRGGGHHHH!!!!!Been away from the dance scene for a couple of years. What the ferrets has happened to hard dance? Stop, start, stop, start, bit of chainsaw noise, stop a bit, start again. Hell's teeth. They should re-name this "hard stand in the middle of the dancefloor with your hands on your hips looking a bit confused". Grumble over - you kids enjoy yourselves!
Martin - London

Finally, some good ol' hardstyle! Congrats to Alex Kidd!
Mohamad Taufiq, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia!
