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.

 Tetsuo writes: That elusive fourth track
Just to carry the discussion over from the other tracklisting site..I was listening to this mix last night i thought i heard the female vocal singing the words to 'How Soon is Now' by The Smiths...not sure if that would help any trainspotters out there or not...

 solonicah writes: hopin mix
This mix and live in havana are by far my two favorite mixes. Nothing is more appropriate for a house party, or a raver slumber party than some classic oaky.
There are so few mixes these days that have any good tracks in them at all. These old oaky mixes are banging from start to finish.

 oakenfold79 writes: error on listing!!!

Amoeba Assassin is not the right track

 simcut writes: 4th Track
An incredible mix as all of Oakey's mixes on the EM World Tour were.

Just for your info the 4th track is Two Fishes - Opera (Vince O'Matic Mix) on OmniSounds Records. Produced by Emmanuel Top and Bruno Sanchioni (BBE & part of Age of Love)

this was the first essential mix I ever listened. And i fell inlove with dance music and Oakey sets ever since. Definately aclassic. To bad Oakey doesn't do it like then nowadays.

 zangief writes: mix
This is the one and only Oakenfold Essential Mix for you to have.... Beatiful music, true magic, Oakenfold really shines on this one. Unfortunately, this was beginning of an end since Oakenfold's follow up years featured samey pretty-melodic trance that has been going down in quality ever since.. but this is the Sh*t. Aquanaut's song is my favorite

 zangief writes: correction
Sorry for spamming... Correction: Right before the Aquanaut song Oakenfold briefly mixes in Nalin & Kane "Open Your Eyes" (opening track) again.

 cokaznrebel writes: best EM ever
Im sorry but this could frankly be the best EM ever, Id love to know what the correct song is before bullet in the gun, is it La Abba? or is it der det drumm or whatever you call it (either way thier both hard to find on vinyl) Ive already got like 1/3 of this set on vinyl and i love the songs.

 Ruggs69 writes: Beyond a doubt classic greatness
Oakey is my fave spinner.
This and Havana are my fuel for weekend nights. This EM is so amazing, i hope he spins more like these.

 serp writes:
The last track is actually (I think) a combination of Amoeba Assassin - "Speedway Revisited" (The kick and bassline) + The Source - Fly Away.

 worlddude writes: djmikey is right
14th track is not a track by amoeba assassin. It's defenitely Der Dritte Raum - Hale Bopp (Raumgleiterversion). Pretty neat track btw.

Love this essential mix btw. I'm totally not into trance, but to be honest: this is one of the best Essential mixes I have.

THE BEST Oakie mix ever. Too bad he went downhill from there

 adcashmo writes:
This is probably the best Oakey essential mix.

'Goa' was groundbreaking but for me the stuff Oakey was playing in 98/99 was top notch and this set showcases the man at the top of his game!

It's got all the oakey moments:
- the briilliant trancey opener (Nalin & Kane - "Open Your Eyes"); true to form oakey lets us know who's arrived. None of this funky/chunky build up stuff.
- The Full-on trance in the middle (again in this case 09. Nalin & Kane - Open Your Eyes (El Barco Para Es Vedra Mix))
-The subdued mid-section (The Auranaut then Brainchild)
-The OMG "what the fuck is this" moment (Wonky vs. Radiohead)
-The brand new tunes everyone else will be playing a year later (first outings for 'Bullet in the gun', 'Just another day' and of course 'Street spirit')

Good things don't last forever though; of course he's never going to play stuff like this again but if he did this set would seem less special.

BTW I also think this is better than the Lotherton Hall set even though it got voted best set of 1999 in mixmag or something.

Not sure about this. With tracks like Skip Raiders and Bullet in the Gun he came close to cheesetastic territory, but the first hour is brilliance.
