Welcome to this site, here you can find the Radio One Essential Mix archives, ever since 1993 when it first broadcasted, up until today, and for the future. In time there will be features added for "artist in residence" which will be a profile of a DJ/Producer we will pick each month, and give you information about them and what they are doing now.

The page is updated by atleast a few people, so it is always up to date.

 seeker writes: this IS techno
if you like techno, and you haven't heard this mix, you're really missing out. if you don't know techno, get this mix, you'll soon understand.

the first hour flows nicely through some old school stuff. great melodies, nice beats. the mix of new order is killer. builds nicely to the 'spastik' and 'flash' mix, which kicks it up a notch for the harder second hour.

i play this about once a week.

 Hillsman writes: Bite more than you can chew?
There isn't much activity on this site so I doubt anyone will read my comments, but cannot resist making my feelings known.

Basically, I grew up with techno and it was my first love, before it degraded into the mind assaulting repetitive assortment of bleeps, beats, snares and samples that is is today.

I know and love almost every track in this set and I am fortunate to own a lot of them (in one form or another) or to have heard them played live by the likes of Laurent Garnier, Dave Angel, Joey Beltram, Frank De Wulf, Colin Dale, Derrick May, Kevin Saunderson etc etc

I was excited when I heard about this particular EM, but my expectations were shattered when I saw the tracklisting....50 tracks in 2 hours?! At best, you get a mere snippet of a great tune (anything less than the full version of an amazing track like Stardancer is an offence) and at worst, you get a jumbled mess of sound. IMO, Masters achieves both. Just check out Ken Iishi's Extra - should've been a mix highlight, but is instead criminally overlapped by inappropriate tracks before and after....though I was never a fan of Spastik in the first place.

The mix gets 7 from me as there are so mnay techno greats / classics in there, but the old adage that 'too many cooks spoils the broth' certainly rings true here

 mkw-pfc writes: ok
this mix was alright but he promised 15 years worth of techno cant remember hearing anything prior to enery flash - anyway the mix itself was alright at best really but it seemed a bit short of funky housey techno & more slanted towards the panel beating stuff - something nearer to stacey pullens effort would have suited me
