    Given that I'm an ex-punk into musicians like Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Radiohead, Sex Pistols and The Fall etc, it's a bit strange that I've been playing this mix a lot over the last few days and nights but it really has caught my attention.

    I'm writing about a powerful mix called Snowsteppin' by Essential Fatty Acid / EFA Sound System (more below) and from the podcast of the same name found here:
    Essential Fatty Acid / EFA Sound System.

    I'm absolutely hooked folks. It has a lot of the qualities that I'm sure many of you will remember upon first hearing Leftism by Leftfield or material like; Out Of Control from Surrender by the Chemical Brothers in that it picks you up, slaps you about a bit, then drops you back into your armchair with a dazed but happy expression on your face. Added to this it has the same thrilling impact as the soundtrack music from David Holmes/The Free Association and Neil Sparkes in the sensational 2003 South African movie; Stander.

    Snowsteppin' is a liberating work that gets into all the right corners of the mind. The running time is just under 1 hour 6 minutes and takes the listener on a journey through all things Dubstep / Drum and Bass. If you want to dance this mix is for you. If you want to chill, likewise.

    It is my firm belief that the media artist behind
    Snowsteppin' / Essential Fatty Acid (EFA), none other than our own highly talented pal and fellow member Cliqtech here on Sensitize © is an artist who should be snapped up by all good labels and someone to look out for on reputable filmscore and new music / Dubstep / Drum and Bass scenes to come.

    Respect 8) ...

Given that I'm not an ex-punk, nor a fan of Nick Cave, Radiohead, Sex Pistols, The Fall, etc, it's not surprising that I like Snowsteppin'.

Bloody brilliant.

Nice one, Cliqtech.

T'iz bloody brilliant indeed. It's great reading it suits the varied tastes of different members on here. That speaks volumes about the quality of the work and how much other creatives like ourselves recognise all that's been put into producing it.

Seán Óg was here lastnight and we listened to it on the hi-fi with bass levels up. It sounded feckin' ace :D ...

Nice one Cliq :D . I'm on the Misst site now. Some very sweet tunage 8) ...

All the best with the gig mate... If you have a digital camera and get a chance to take a few photos of the crowd and the other DJ's it could be turned into a music video you can use to promote the rest of your work. Also, if you can record the event and get a few recordings of the crowds between tracks, that could be blended or edited into future material. It'll help build up a portfolio which is always a good thing to have.
