    Mix C - lots of real oldschool classics. It takes balls of steel to start any mix with Larry Heard. The mixing was OK, 7.5/10. Could have done more with the flow and the inclusion of the Soulsearchers and Armand track at the end threw things out a bit. If it stuck with jacking and old school all the way and was heavily blended...maybe ending on some Frankie, it would have been right up my street.

    Mix A - Some classics, in fact a lot from my record boxes, so giving respect to the golden era of house. The mixing was perfected but I was not feeling the flow 100%. 90% maybe. And there were some nice drops throughout. The overall mix sounded just a little too trendy-cocktail-bar-handbag for me. Not that its a bad thing really, everything has its place. Would have prefered more dub versions or original mixes, but I can't complain.

    Mix B - Bumping from start to finish. I couldn't place a lot of the tracks. Which could mean it is a Beatport top-ten mixed with the latest equipment, which can never be good. However, the phrasing was locked tighter than a nun on the rag. The type of mix that would pass in the club and get me bouncing after a few pints, and the flow presented well enough. I would have prefered more oldschool tracks and instrumentals, but its just a matter of taste.


    I kinda wanna give it to mix A.
    Mix B annd C are obviously should know they don't need a battle win under their belt at this point in their DJ career, the sets were tight.
    But I have to give credit where its due.
    So congrats Mr Mix B. Tracklist please!
    bored, curious, deaf or just bad taste in music?
    finally a mix by me
    and what's this, another shoddy mix...another dull mix

    Guess it's a tie.

    Thanks to the four that voted and Pete for your comments.
    Music is magic. It can alter mood and evoke vivid memories. It is with you through your darkest times and brightest moments. Its effects are boundless.
    And all that power that is within music... I can control with these two hands.

    Ok guys. Here's what went to whom:

    Mix A: Daniel S
    Mix B: DJ_G3N3R4L
    Mix C: BDC

    Since DJ_G3N3R4L and BDC tied, will there be a spin-off??? What do you say, guys?

    That's funny, since my main gig is at a trendy cocktail bar

    Thanks Daniel. Your mix was great as well. As Pete said earlier - it was a tough one to judge.

    thanks for the tracklist...Packer does Heller...hmmm interesting!
    I easily guessed that was your mix by the sound when i heard it.

    there aint nothing wrong with cocktail-bar
    unlike clubs, at least there i don't get ravers coming up to me and telling me I'm too old.
