This is my first exploration into drum and bass. I was inspired to put these tracks together after listening to my best mate Norris mix this incredible genre for so long. I thoroughly enjoyed taking the time to make this a gift I could give him to say thank you for opening my ears and my heart.

Norris you are the king kick ass ninja!!!!



"The cd rules!"

"Hey Darvin, that was awesome! I woke up this morning and played it, it became the perfect way to start my morning! A huge smile is on my face now! And now I'm ready to get on with my day. Mmmm Juicy... (maybe I'll replace this with my moring cup of O-J!)."
- Spotlight

"Darvin! What a good set! It's so emotional. I'm really enjoying it! It's so nice that you are widening your music base. Hell, we could have a party called "Nokturnal" and it could just be you all night! ha ha 10-12 - DnB/Jungle 12-2 - Breaks 2-4 - Psy breaks 4-6 - Psy/Progressive Hee hee. And I'm sure there's more! Good job!"
- Birdy

"Soooo.... goooood.... *twitch*."

"Excellent Mix. I have listened numerous times now, and each time found something new. Thanks again Darvin"
- Dig_It

"Awesome! It's about time someone from here started playing this kind of dnb."
- Katnip

".....then I heard this sound.... and it came to be my utopia....I just wanted to let you know that I just finished "The Way to Happiness". To be brutally honest with you, this is the first set I've ever listened to fully, in one sitting...ever.. it felt so damn good. Alot of the tunes created visual illustrations in my mind.. ranging from colors to clouds to the sea.. There was one tune in particular where I almost shed a tear, but not of sadness."

"...just sitting here at work listening to "The Way to Happiness", I have to tell you I love this CD! I have frequented this journey many times."
- Ada Sokolowski

"'The Way to Happiness' is BLOWING MY MIND! I LOVE Roni Size! I saw him here in Portland when he launched Breakbeat Era (they rock!). Then you brought tears to my eyes with the remix of Gorecki... I L O V E LAMB !!! In 2000, met Louise & Andy here in PDX: he called me a "CoincidenceCoordinator", which has been my moniker, ever since! I like Andy's music(esp. his 'HipOptimist' style), and Louise's writing sends shivers down my spine, and touching my soul. Rite On! Love"

When I am dancing in my room in the mornings, it makes me feel like dancing in the sand with the warm sun rays dancing over my body. Having the blissful atompheric beats carry my body into a place where the hula hoops circle my mind, over my body around the universe and back to here heaven exsists! I have found and fell in love with The Way To Happiness. Thank you!
- Laurie

"Wow the title actually very true to how I felt listening to this mix. At the last track of the mix I had a moment of pure happiness reflecting on my life journey so far and how improbable it is that I end up where I am. Your mix was instrumental in bringing that feeling within me. Thank you. "
