    Going to give this one more listen so that i've listened three times too. Have to say it's a great mix, like the change between old essence favourites and new tracks... I ended up drifting in and out of sleep last night with this on. Great listen.

    that was my intent lol i made it on a rainy day then the sun came out so it switches from making you sleeply to a lil bit uptempo then to jus chillz lol if i had had my external hard drive i wouldve really done some damage lol had to work with what i had

    i put some old essence favorites on there for the new ppl who never got a chance to enjoy them

    thanks for the listen

    haha good shout!

    Yeah, I like that, a really good introduction, definitely a golden mix for someone who hasn't heard any essence previous stuff.

    And I wouldn't have fallen asleep if I hadn't been living on 4 hours sleep each night for the week haha I love the chilled tracks, was great to see EMC on one of them as well.

    Going to give this another listen monday night and then I'll drop a track by track review as you did!

    1)intro-perquiste - Nice chilled out start

    2)I am hip hop-jazz liberators f/asheru Great track, one of my favourites from Jazz Liberators, nice choice.

    3)the pressure-presto f/raashan ahmad - Great track, another than I've already heard, but the production is top notch and they carry the track well.

    4)check me out-vakill - Picked up Vakill's - Worst Fears Confirmed. Have to say as much as I enjoyed it, I didn't get it like others did. Thought the production was slack. But this track is really nice and is making me want to go back and make sure I haven't missed anything with a young ear. Nice track, love the production.

    5)cool down-jazz liberators f/raashan ahmad - Another nice one, can't go wrong with Jazz libs really.

    6)say jazzy-jazz addix Perfect hook on this one which gives it more heavy rotation, another nice track.

    7)incistroduction-prince ali& incise From one of my favourite mixtapes ever - I Miss 1994! The drums on this are just incredible. An old favourite.

    8)elephant juice-cilvaringz I like the hook on this, but wasn't really the sound that I'm into, nevertheless a nice track with some good quotables.

    9)leaving-diverse Nice track, but not as good as the others. I've got a few of Diverse's albums, can't say they've ever had me going back... but then I have too much music so it needs to standout for that to happen. Nevertheless, this one has nice production and soothing sounds.

    10)serpent and the rainbow-vakil One of my favourites of the whole mix, the sample 'BABY!' and everything about this track is niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice!!!!!! Great track. l

    11)first person-cyne - One of CYNE's greatest ever tracks, I listened to this along with Evolution Fight for a whole summer at University, really takes me back.

    12)the nosebleed section-hilltop hoods One of my old contributions, great track I discovered through a friend who visited Australia. The video is sick! Great sample, great addition to the playlist :tu

    13)we likes to party-terra firma - La Di Da Di... I like the sample of Slick Rick. Nice track, but not as good as the others... It's a shame, but I can't take Australian voices on rap records too much.... that said they have nice flows... I just can imagine them on an episode of Neighbours or Home and Away hahaha

    14)classic rock-giant panda - Nice Giant Panda track, I've heard a lot about Giant Panda... but confess I've never really listened. Anything I should check out?

    15)love hurts-little vic - Another great sample and nice storytrack. Impressive.

    16)starlite-panacea - One of my favourite tracks of the playlist, have to say that it ends with great strength.

    17)thats reality-jazz liberatorz - Another Jazz Libs :tu

    18)monotony-tonedeff - As a big Tonedeff fan - especially Porcelain, it was great to hear a track from him that I hadn't already. Great track! Just wishin upon his album with Kno... taking forever.

    19)u let me grow-emc - Heartfelt track, rightfully placed at the end... nice.

    20)length of the blade-knonam - Great track, one of my favourites from last year :tu

    im sure alot of you heard of majority of these artist but i could only work with what was on my laptop.....my next mix will have under under ground artist
