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.

This mix is far too commercial to be taken seriously by this listener I'm afraid.

For that reason I won't rate the mix.

"Far too commercial"!?!? synk... I mean, I guess it is, I just can't fathom how you've made it through the last 3+ years of Essential Mix broadcasts and only raised the "it's commercial!!" flag NOW. There have got to be a couple dozen other broadcasts recently that are no LESS commerical, at the very least.

(I've also never gotten how "commercial" became an inherently negative term, but that's a completely separate discussion and one not worth rehashing... it's a religious war in the end.)

Personally, I enjoyed this mix. Mixing was a little utilitarian, but it's unoffensive if uninspired. Tracks are upbeat, light, and there's a whimsey to the set that was missing from his 2005 mix. (Which I have to admit I couldn't really get into, as hard as I tried. Just not my style. I know that makes me a bad person.)

Worth looking out for Tocadisco's take on Sono there in the middle, too -- refreshing alternative to the done-to-death Victor Calderone mix. And I will admit, in deference to synkboy's objections, that the closing 10-15 minutes or so are almost painfully heavy-handed.

 ferd writes: Sono
...OK, it's worth looking out for the Sono remix, but also not listening closely enough to notice the vocal edit. I missed it the first time around. :-P

(Then again, it's no worse than many of the other 'Essential' loops that end up slapped all over these mixes like so much police tape at a crime scene...)

 ninjafury writes: Nice
Come on ppl, why all the negativity? This was a good house mix with some fun tunes. I think it was allrite, and IT IS WORTH LISTENING TO! (especially if you're into french house)

I loved this mix, it's Bob Sinclair's signature style with upbeat house and africanized house. The second half gets a little weird with the acoustic finish, but overall it was really nice.

Not sure why I see this "too commercial" bashing a few times too many. I go by personal taste, the consistency of the music, and the style of the DJ.

I agree with enjoyable upbeat mix that doesn't stretch any boundaries, but sometimes that's absolutely fine.

i dont see the hype around sinclair, i know he is recogized throught the world, but i can't take anymore of this house music.....its turning into disco...i didn't listen to most of the mix, i was waiting for him to drop something nasty and it never came!

 turner writes: almost a year on...
when i first heard it I thought it was a pile of commercial tripe. 1 year on I have no realised how forward thinking Bob Sinclair is as a DJ. As Ibiza begins to die in its minimalist electro techno hell, Sinclair has realised before a lot of others, that cheesy House is coming back and in a big way. This summer in Mykonos, Sinclairs Africanism sound rocked and I foresee it ruling clubs in the foreseeable future.
