I remember listening to this on the Essential mix first time round. It was awesome then and still is now!!!
Wils, Whitehaven UK

Now this is more like it. I have never commented before, probably because I stopped listening the the EM years ago because of the declining standard. Radio 1 should revisit classic EMs more often (particularly the years ‘93 – ‘99).
Paul, West Mids

Excellent memories, back when Oakie was good!
Craig, Birmingham

Its so nice to hear the old Progressive House and Trance...If only things didnt change...This new music aint a patch on it..Im sorry to say this but the likes of Eric Prydz/Axwell and the Electro geezers CANNOT make decent music...Sorry to be so abrupt,but its true.
Andy - Stoke on Trent

This was a classic mix, it was the first proper Radio One essential mix I ever listened to! Brings back some great memories, bring on this years event, cmon!!

loved the set, most of the songs sound just as good today. but what's up with the train wreck on Oakenfold's first transition? I bet he's sad you chose to relive that memory...
