A BBC Essential mix recording from the New Years eve party at club Cream in Liverpool. This night a special BBC Essential mix was broadcasted with various DJs behind the wheels of steel. In this first part both essential mix host Pete Tong and James Barton stood behind the turntables.

The second part where Carl Cox and José Padilla show their skills can also be found on this site.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
    it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
