''Absolute fucking quality. Easily one of the best mixes I've heard on here. Great mixing, good flow, great track selection and some lovely additions of vocals.''

''Great stuff, will be listening to this many times. Better than 99% of the actual Essential Mixes that have been aired.''

''Sometimes we have to dig and dig to find the gold nugget, so I'm glad I found this one''

''10/10 and I'm only at 30:00''

''Hey, I just wanted you to know that I REALLY enjoyed the set. It has a massiveness about it. It is beautiful and makes my imagination afire. Thank you so much you are an inspiration!''

''I have somehow missed this one before yesterday. But now when I have listened it, I just adore this one. I love the way this set develops and then calms down before the end.''

''Absolutely sublime. I've been listening to this mix since 2009, it died with my old laptop a few months ago and have been frantically trying to find it again. I just wanted to say thank you for hours and hours of musical bliss.''
