Your reviews of the mix

james USA
FYI Fake Blood is DJ Touche .. along with a few others. The guy is talented for sure. Been doing it for a while, He kinda maybe got "stuck on repeat" a little in the first hour but lots of quality Layering and Mixxing for sure. TIGA april 4th .. " sound of my shoes" !!!!

Igor, Philadelphia
Absolutely the Best EM of the year so far. Easily a contender for EM of the year. I love the split b/w club & afterparty. Killer tracks the whole way through. Great job fake blood and come to Philly!

Anand, UK
I wanted to switch off because had things to do but couldn't. The mix got better as it went on! Brilliant!Will defo have to check out fake blood live.

jab , brum
Awesome! Best EM in a while

Aditya, India
Brilliant !!

Claude Minkey Hereford
Great to have another creative mix on the radio, there were some great bits in this mix and very varied, keeps you listening wandering whats coming next !??

Claire - NY
Absolutely Insane! Glorious tracks. This has become one of my all time favorite Essential Mixes. Thanks Fake Blood

cheer up
it only gets betta!

Great Stuff!!!... Although I just wish he kept up the pace of the first hour… These artists are awesome… the next 4-5 weeks looks like a real essential line up!! Tiga FTW!

Wow! Deeper than i thought! Incredibly well put together - a real journey, nicely divided into 2 scenarios... Boy 8-Bit, DJ Zinc and Touche we're the highlights for me... Nice one Theo

Steve, Los Angeles it corny to say that fake blood 'killed it'? 'Cuz he did....

Leana Glasgow
Absolutely banging. Loves it!

King Darren of Aigburth (Liverpool, U.K).
What can I say... the quality of this Essential Mix is on par with the classic Daft Punk & Basement Jaxx selections. Wide range of styles: Can to Dj Zinc to Radiohead.With a modern mash-up twist, Fake Blood gets the Royal approval.

Max, Dundee
Awesome mix! Brilliant how the 2 hours are split into the club and afterparty :)

John _ Dublin - RoI
Was really looking forward to this.. but I found that it got boring fast.Amazing how many times you can play the same speech sample over & over & over & over & over & over & over again within a tune. Ah well.. Takes the focus off from the repetitive sawtooth wave basslines. Not enough contrast. I know he was going for the club / afterparty vibe.. but overall, I found it just too same - y. T'was a shame it was.

Tim, Durham
A bit like kissy sellout and annie mac stuck in an elevator with the random mix generator turned on

Phil Jelley; Barnes
Dirty stuff! I feel sick and need to have a sleep!!!

Byron, Melbourne Australia

Justin Wiggy, City Of Hull, East Yorkshire
The first hour of this mix is MINDBLOWING!! Why oh why did the tempo change for the second hour? It's such a shame as the second hour is just an average plod!!! Would have had a shot at EM of the year with 2 hours of the "special stuff"!!

oley, birmingham
last hour of this is ridiculous

evan, calif
amazing mix. fake blood is finally putting behind all the gimmicks and establishing himself as a top notch house producer and dj. part 2 of the mix is just mind boggling

Whisperjack Dublin
an absolutely fantastic mix, the best in electro, bassline and nice house and techno in the last hour, could be a definite contender for EM of the year

Conor Jay - Ireland
Absolutely crazy, nothing short of my expectations for Fake Blood!

Thought the first hour was class, seconds not bad either just not bouncy enough though!

NOAH. - St. Louis - USA

Anon @ Belgium

Alex James, Bromley, Kent.
The first half was actually quite a noisy affair. Too screechy, bleepy and lacking in any soul or groove.(4/10) The second half was a lot better, good electronica based music.(7.5/10)

Wildlife on Bass - leeds
1st hour just about through... best essential mix of the year by far. SOOOOOOOO much energy. Listen to our podcast: Wildlife on Bass @ iTunes. x

that bloke somewhere with a tape recorder
