pablo, london
Been following paul ritch for a while, love the hybrid techno/ house sound he plays, spot on, could listen to it over and over. @Dave from Birmingham, can you do a mix like this?? I use beatport and agree he plays a lot of tunes I have bought from there, but you still have to have skill, and and his tune order is spot on too!!!

Lee - Miami

Pat, London
Only 20mins in and I'm already loving this. Played in the right club, this would rip the roof off.

The House of Majerty-New York City
A delicious start to Saturday night...stripped down and deadly.

Stephen in San Francisco
As an ex-pat living in the US I never felt the need to comment on any essential mixes before. But this is 'sublime'. If this is what my euro cousins are listening to nowadays I'm sorely tempted to return to my native shores. Thank you BBC for keeping me tuned up to the latest dance and esp. the D&B scene.

Rene Valente Escandon El Paso, TX US
Awesome sound!!!! Great mix!!! Paul Ritch rocks the dancefloors!!!!!

Karlos and Girish from Palmares Costa Rica
oh my God that is this mix so good one, as soon as to dance the 2 hours .......... my son and I enjoyed every week and every day to each person that we know we invited them to listen to the best program of electronic music worldwide ..... Essential Mix does not stop BBC Radio 1

Please DENNIS FERRER Essential mix yet

Todd R-New York City
Amazing from start to finish. Perfect track selection, perfect mixing. Banging techno the first half, deep and techy the second. This is the EM of the year.

Mandy, Toronto, Canada
AMAZING!!!! I'd not heard of this DJ/Producer before this, but I will definitely be watching out for him now. 2 hours of driving/funky/deep/original techno :)

Very Nice Mix! Respect Mr.Paul Ritch

Johnny, London
The best start to an essential mix for years..........
Fantastic stuff, keep it up!

SICK SICK!!! Can't stop dancin!!!!

Hand Steel - Venezuela.

Didier, Lyon, France
Thanks Paul for this good deep techno mix, I thought new french DJ couldn't do that anymore (I was desperate after Nuits Sonores as we mainly heard mixes without continuity, without soul, please come next year!!!)... Bravo...

Tom from Edinburgh
Technically good but quiet boring set.I'm getting sick and tired of guys nailing very similar tunes over and over.Generally not bad,wish you all the best Paul

Edward Batty
