I thinks the for any djs to qualify here they need to be have been in the scene atleast 6+ years lol.

The Only Dj's should be
N-Type - Dont be thrown off by his tear out rinse sets, He will duppy any dance
Youngsta - lol, no need to say anything here
Chefal - don!, multi 140 style selector, and classic dubs hoarder
Jay5ive - mans just sick, Mer Sher, Monster Dub, etc to name a few
Hatcha

There are a few others:
J:Kenzo - Rinse sets are insane, last one was kak, But the sun of selah one and a earlier was tough!
Distance - Listen to the old rinse podcasts, lost dub specials etc
Joe Nice - deep energy
Plastician - When he was on his ting

Shouts to somebody saying commodo, Lol his good but still a kid. cant be rated by his mixmag mix & system 1st bday only.

not the best, but heny g is a great dj, even though his shows are a little repetitive.
cyrus is pretty tight, too.
to the guy that mentioned darkside: let's be honest, he's not a great dj. drawing for the occasional surprise tune doesn't necessarily make your selection solid. his sets often lack of flow and he always trainwrecks a mix.

pfff...commodo is a don. just because you haven't heard any other sets than the ones you mentioned, doesn't mean everyone else hasn't either.

From who I've seen

Rusko used to rock the crowd. I remember back in the day he was going round the venue chatting to people, with everyone throwing requests at him, then he smashed it. One of the best nights I've been to

Distance/N-Type/Chef - skill wise, flawless mixing

The most memorable set for me was skream at bangface 09. It was rudeboy

+1 for Joe Nice.

Also rate Chef, Hatcha, Jay 5ive

Got to give props to N-Type as well. He has the ability to take tunes I don't even rate that much and really make them work in the mix, plus he is always so hyped, his enthusiasm is infectious.

^ same applies to Kode9 tbh. loads of tunes I didn't rate too much from the beginning really turned out to be absolute belters on his floor.

That's a bit annoying, considering how dope his studio mixes are. Especially his rinse CD mix, that's one of the best mixes I've heard period.

Haha I bet he tried avoiding you after the non-grime set. I bet some of the dubs he has stashed away are unreal.

Dave-Q was sick live as well. He played a remix of Mobb Deep shook ones part 2 that blew the crowd away. Still to this day I've never heard it since.

Chefal always bringing them powerhouse blends. And we all know he's got the freshest of the freshest coki dubs and tbh he's the only one that can really give Coki's tunes justice in the mix

I listen to N-Type most weeks cause i love he's style of mixing and even though sometimes the selection is a little off for me, i still really really enjoy listening to him mix.

Oneman because he plays everything, he's selection is so deep, i wish he didn't use fx as much as he does now days, but still kills it each and every.

J:Kenzo, Om Unit & Tunnidge i will always try and listen too if i see a set of there's online or they happen to be in the country.

The mix features tunes from Gorgon Sound, Dark Tantrums, Headhunter, Proxima, Commodo, Silkie, and many more. I hope you enjoy the vibes. :)

He was on fire last night when I saw him as well at Tokyo Dub.

Pinch was great too, although I have heard him do some pretty ropey mixing in the past lol
