    it's a weekly radio show on BBC Radio 1 that is also broadcasted online.

    it features a different DJ each week, selected by Pete Tong. it's basically a two hour live mix or studio recorded mix. many different styles of electronic music are featured.

    That Erol Alkan EM from this year's Global Gathering fucking rocks! I like to imagine that he's playing in the Sahara tent when I listen to it. Hope he's on the bill for 08. The recent High Contrast mix might be the best EM I have heard. So good.

    The Daft Punk EM really isnt that great. It's a bit old so it sounds dated. The mix and selection really dont help it any. Same goes for any of the Groove Armada essential mixes.

    Not an essential mix, but Gabriel and Dresden's Nikki Beach set from the WMC is one of my favorites. Brando, if you can find this one you will love the intro especially. Sorry I can't post it. I can barely type. Little help?

    The Psychonauts were a dj duo on the Mo' Wax label (James Levelle's label that had Air, Dj Shadow, Blackalicious, UNKLE, Luke Vibert, etc.).

    Their EM has that dark hip hop, triphop feel to it.

    Air
    Massive Attack
    Portishead
    Justice
    Dj Yoda/Greenpeace
    Basement jaxx
    Judging by this list it seems you have only been exposed to indie-pop EDM acts. You should venture off into breaks, progressive, d 'n b, etc.. I like:

    24/03/1996 - LTJ Bukem & MC Conrad
    07/02/1999 - Ed Rush & Optical
    12/11/2000 - Craig Richards & Lee Burridge
    09/12/2001 - Stanton Warriors
    03/10/2004 - Desyn Masiello
    28/11/2004 - Blackstrobe
    20/03/2005 - Evil Nine
    26/11/2000 - John 'OO' Flemming
    10/07/2005 - Richie Hawtin and Ricardo Villalobos, Live from T in the Park
    07/05/2006 - Gabriel & Dresden
    26/03/2006 - Desyn Masiello, Demi & Omid 16b (Daylight Savings Special 3-Hour Mix)
    20/08/2006 - Axwell

    I wouldnt say those are indie-pop edm acts, but I just like those styled dj sets. I've listened to both Evil 9 and the Stanton mix, didnt care for them. I saw Richie hawtins set this year and Coach and he was pretty good, so ill check that one out. I cant say theres a specific subgenre of edm i like other than House....

    Evil Nine and the Stanton Warriors are the breaks acts off the mix, so it would seem that you don't care for breaks. That's a pity. Check out the psy-trance and d 'n b.

    Certainly have to say that the Trentemoller mix is definitely a must listen to. I have played this for people at my work and had them plus customers asking who it was. Good stuff.

    As for my favs. I'd have to say:

    Carl Cox
    Justice
    Portishead
    Sven Vath
    and Groove Armada

    And just to stray a bit I'd have to say Adam Freelands Global Underground set is also a big hit.

    anyone else heard the Trentemoller mix? i'd like to hear your opinions on it.

    certain people think it sucks. i happen to think it's brilliant, very unique, amazing, etc. etc.
