Personally to listen to the Essential Mix jingle and Tongless  free is something to behold and a lovely piece of classic Essential Mix to enjoy, I certainly do... :thumbsup:

Here's his write up....

The Essential Mix - 1994 Year Pack (Version 2) [18-09-2010]  

This is TMB's new and improved "Version 2" of the "1994 Essential Mix Year Pack"! The most complete and best quality 1994 year pack out there!*  


To celebrate my 100th ESSENTIAL MIX UPLOAD I proudly welcome you to the new and greatly improved 1994-year pack. As you know the old pack is a total car crash with many files missing, incomplete, poor quality or have bits repeated. My search for better quality, complete files have led me to spend the past year making this new pack. I hope you enjoy it!

Notes & Technical Info:
My 1st batch of 16 1994 New Conversions have been reconverted from the original Abelton Live Recording WAV file and are different than the individual downloads. These have been re-edited with better use of fading around the removed news bulletins and their intros & outros, for a smoother sounding mix. I have encoded these files and Pluggs FLACs using the lame V0 q0 -lowpass16 setting, like the last 16 Ive just uploaded. The bitrates of the other files range from 160kbps 256kbps.

All of the other files have been played in their entirety to check everything is there and run through a MP3 Scan & Repair program. Using a MP3 splitter, some files have been trimmed of their news bulletins or parts have been removed that arent Essential Mix (like overruns). So many were in worse state than I originally realized. For example, I thought the Sasha EM was fine, but playing a bit slow (2:00:32), but it actually had 6 minutes in the middle repeated!? Some have been removed of their news bulletins as well.

Some of the Essential Mixes in this new 1994-Year Pack have come from the original Pack and used to exist as an individual download, which are now long dead. If the old pack is deleted then only some of those individual files will only be available here. I will be posting an update in the What we have to offer page - in the Essential Mix forum - so you can see where you can get all the individual files from.

All files are complete (minus the tape change over, except the restorations - they are fully complete), generally play at the right speed and range from OK to excellent quality, except:

1994-04-02 - EM 024 - Pete Tong (MIssing the intro and has a lot of Pete Tong's voiceovers taken out!!)
1994-07-16 - EM 039 - Jon Pleased Wimmin (Poor quality, missing outro 20 Seconds and plays slow @ 2:00:55)
1994-10-02 - EM 049 - Danny Rampling (Missing intro 15 seconds)
1994-10-23 - EM 052 - Pete Tong (Missing intro 1 minute)
1994-11-27 - EM 057 - DJ Harvey & CJ Mackintosh (3hrs) (The DJ Harvey part is poor quality)

Not bad when you consider the state it was in!  

Key to new files:
* These trimmed / no news bulletin versions only exist in this torrent.
** These are now complete mixes and only exist in this torrent.
*** This file was taken from a new individual torrent and had 8 minutes of Mark Tonderai at the end removed and only exists in this torrent. Unfortunately it has a lot of Pete Tong's voiceovers taken out. Thanks ENNISELLIS for pointing it out.

The incomplete (dodgy quality) 1994-03-12 - Media Records Special and 1994-06-11 - Dave Clarke Essential Mixes have been made complete with some clever editing and are better quality (from partial new rips). They will only be found in this year pack. Thanks to Lee Ruffles and Scott Brady for their work in ripping and constructing these files.

Many thanks also go to the original rippers/uploaders of all the decent quality MP3s that have made it into this new pack. Scott Brady gets a massive shout for digging out his tapes and ripping them for me helping me make a few complete and of course to Plugg for his amazing restorations. Lee Ruffles deserves another special mention for finding the Brothers in Rhythm New Years Day mix!  Thanks also has to go to Ojay and clmfsh for their much valued technical support in helping me through some tricky moments. Respect to you all!
