Your August Mix was wonderful. Is wonderful. I didn't have an email to send you a thank you so I finally got off my lame ass to get back on the site. It looks like the festival was a blast. Thanks again. Oh by the way, Bill Hicks lives!

Walter

Hi Chris, your August disc left Sydney today (Aug 12th)

Chris - I've been meaning to leave a post about your mixes that you sent me recently. Huge thanks for two great CDs I absolutely love them both. Motorik Steampunk is a regular on my office stereo and has everyone nodding their heads in appreciation (I've even copied it a couple of times for colleagues - is that allowed? or do I have to pay you royalties?!) I love the Underworld mix too - ta very much!

Cal

No worries on the tardiness, Chris! Both mixes you sent are excellent, a far cry from the yoozh. You had me at Afro-Celt Soundsystem; always loved that group, but never have bought any material. "Earth" is just full of amazing stuff I'd never heard, and I'm a huge fan of Celtic music in general so it is all right up my alley (particularly love the String Sisters), plus the Fanfare Ciocarlia sample in that Basement Jaxx tune tickles my fancy as well. "Water" is also great, even if I don't necessarily get the connection...maybe I just have to think about it more. Anyway, thanks a lot!

Hi Chris, I'm sorry, your March mix is a bit late, but will be on it's way to you today.

John

I also love how "Rationalist" and "Smoker" are right next to each other. A seeming contradiction? Or do you merely contain multitudes? ;^>

John

Ahoy Chris. I was your recipient for December (the Radio Zion mix) and I just wanted to say how much I appreciate the obvious thought and effort you put in. A great mix. I hadn't listened to D&B much to be honest (I'd heard the Burial tune, and also the Bowie, but that's it), so kudos, etc.

Steve

Hey Chris, I was supposed to be your mix maker in December but I had a computer problem. I let Ryan know and I think he made sure you got something, but now that I'm mostly recovered, I sent off the mix that I owed you yesterday from Washington, DC. Thanks for your patience.

David

Bully for you for starting off your Profile description with being an atheist. My resolution is to start substituting; "Richard Dawkins" into swearing instead of saying; "Jesus Christ". It seems more appropriate. Not sure what it's like where you live, but we atheists are a much maligned minority in North America. Especially in the States. Might as well say you're a child molester, for all the sympathy you'll get there. Anyways, are you up for a side trade you Godless heathen?

Bryce

I just mailed your November Mixtape today and expected it to get there by then end of next week. When I logged in to send you this message I saw that your address changed though. Not sure how UK is with forwarding mail. It can be hit or miss here and adds a few days to delivery. Let me know if you don't get it.

Robert

Chris, just typing this note to you clumsily on my phone with a baby in one arm to let you know that your June mix will be quite late. Sorry. I think that you'll find it worth the wait.

Trish

Hi Chris Musically we have much is common and I do some DJing to.Im a beleiver though but here its the music that matters.Drop me a line if you are interested in a side trade.I enjoy Rock,Reggae ,Jazz, Oldies and some Country but NOT Gangsta rap. My email is trishmul77@hotmail.com

Rob

Glad it arrived OK, in spite of the vagaries of La Poste Française. What did you think?

Rob

Hey Chris, I put your mix CD in the post on Tuesday, so you should receive it in the next couple of days. I hope you enjoy it.
