  • Thank You, Lars!

    As UKMIX is about to move under the leadership of Wayne (thanks so much!), I think we need to all acknowledge and thank Lars, our site's fearless leader and creator (and fixer) for 20 years!

    I know I speak for many in saying I am grateful for all you did, Lars. You created a place many of us have found an online home and I have made many great lifelong friends on this site you created. We will always owe you a debt of gratitude. I hope you'll still lurk as we move into UKMIX 2.0!

    Thanks, mate!

        Thank you, Lars! UKMix has brought me peace and joy these past nine and a half years to the point where I can't imagine life without it.

                                    Lovely idea for a topic, Dustin - I'll alert Lars to it as he might not otherwise see it.

                                    I believe Lars created UKMIX in conjunction with Amir and Anita (Matthew will be able to clarify) but the latter two moved on a long time ago and Lars has done everything since. A great brainwave developed into something that over 34,000 people have enjoyed over the last 20 years.

                                    Cheers Lars!

                                      In a way I have Lars to personally thank for many of the songs in my library. So without Lars there wouldn't be UKMIX, and without UKMIX I know for a fact I wouldn't have discovered lots of the songs currently in my library many of which have become my all time favourites. Major gratitude and thanks towards Lars.

                                      Would I have discovered these songs without UKMIX? Maybe I would have found some of them via Spotify playlists and various radio stations but I doubt it. I'd probably be on some other forum and stumble on a lot of things but there is more variety here.

                                        Similarly, I would like to thank Lars for the homosexual chunks of music in my library. Without this forum, I wouldn't be stanning for Cheryl when she stopped being cool. Without this forum, I would have been scared to spread the gospel of my favourite pop princesses in real life. Without this forum... you get the idea.

                                          If it weren’t for Lars, we would’ve all ended up on ATRL. So thank you for saving our souls, basically!

                                            Thanks for all you've done here Lars!

                                            The first PM I sent to anyone on UKMIx was to Lars. It was many, many, years ago (Monday 22 December 2003 in fact and was in connection with Dotmusic, another UK based music website, that was just about to close). And I still have it! Even though at the time Lars was on holiday in Poland for two weeks over Christmas and the New Year he still took time out to answer my PM - that shows dedication to the website. So yes, a big thanks and all the best for whatever you are doing in the future.

                                                            To clarify Wayne’s post, yes it was Lars, Amir and Aneta who originally set up the site. Lars did all the techy stuff, Aneta was site editor and Amir edited the weekly single reviews. Aneta left our team a long time ago now and I took over as site editor at that point. Amir and Lars’s forum activity has gone down and down as years have gone on.

                                                            Anyway, a huge thank you to Lars for all the tech of the last 20 years. I’ve spent a staggering amount of time on here, it’s been a huge part of my life, and I’ve made some great friends on here, Lars and Amir themselves amongst the most key of them.
