    No Kleinenberg from 2001 or Digweed from 1999.

    List loses all credibility !

    This release was mastered direct from vinyl at the request of the DJ and as such features natural sound characteristics of this medium such as record surface noise.

    Digweed 99? What about Digweed '95? Arguably the sound that defined an era of dance music. I would have at least traded this one out for the Gordon Kaye one. I would take out the Carl Cox Millenium E-mix too. Yeah, he played the new years twice, but the sets were meh at best. Would trade that one out for Oakenfold's Creamfields 99.

    Need to check out the flying lotus one.
    you could put an Emfire release on for 2 minutes and you would be a sleep before it finishes - Chunky

    it's RA. they'd blow their load all over some stupid 20 minute loop of a snare if it had a quirky flange setting. - Tiddles

    Considering how good Oakenfold and Sasha where in 1998, yes it was shite. Probably Sasha's worst.

    Edit I forgot about last weekend

    not claiming these were the best, but some kinda other than normal shows that i've really liked were Oakenfold Home@Space 7/99, Andy C 5/05, and one of my all time favorites..... Tony De Vit 07/98... this mix slays.

    Anyways, thanks for the EM... it's been so awesome over the years.

    Lists like this are always going to cause controversy. At the end of the day, it's all about personal opinion.
