Nero essential mix get all tracks separately

*** This post was updated scroll down for the important update info ***

On november 13th Nero performed at BBC Radio 1 the essential mix. Their performance was absolutely epic and got a a lot of positive feedback from the scene. This mix consists off some tremendous dubstep, electro and drum 'n base tracks. It's not hard to find the tracklist or the entire mix on the web. However until now it took a lot of googling to download all the separate tracks. So to make life a bit easier I've made a Spotify playlist and placed all the tracks in the right order. All you need to do is download the tracks separately and import them in Spotify.

Therefor this blog post will be the most complete online resource on Nero's essential mix on BBC's Radio 1.

If you haven't heard the mix it's available at simply hit play to start streaming.

  1. Track nr. 34, 35, 36 it’s already Muse – Exogenesis part 1.

    Track nr 37 it’s also Exogenesis part 1 and not part 1.

  2. *Track no. 37 is also Exogenesis part 1 and not part 2.

    Sorry for the mistake.

  3. Hi Bociaz I’ll correct the part number thnx… It doesn’t make much sense to change the track number because I’m missing the first intro track compared to the soundcloud track list…

  4. The tags are terrible… Can’t listen (too many times) without scrobbleability. So I’m currently renaming/retagging all these so contact me if you are willing to upload my versions somewhere. album is “Nero – Essential Mix 2010-11-13”, album artist is Nero, contributing artists are the original artists, remix variants (other than Nero’s) are indicated in the title (like “Difficult (SebastiAn Remix)”). I’m probably getting parts wrong here and there. Hopefully someone with more experience can take what I come up with and polish it?

  5. never mind, just delete both comments. Easier to download all tracks from soundcloud. Those versions are well tagged. I’m grateful for this post because it eventually led me to a better place, but might you update it to point others in the right direction? The versions you link to here just aren’t very good compared to SoundCloud…

  6. Uselesslog : you rule. thank you for having this website.

  7. This girl i know will love this! Thanks alot for the effort you put into this!!

  8. Your welcom guys, If you have better version plz put them in the comments and I will update this blog post. I don’t mind to point ppl in a better direction 😀


    Though these separate-track versions really spoil you. There are so many other essential mixes that are still stuck in single files.

  10. Thnx Frank I’ll add it to the blogpost.

  11. Hey Frank just noticed I’ve already embedded the version you posted in the comments in de blogpost… so it’s now double…
