Product Description


John Digweed's double-disc set in the Global Underground mix series showcases the British DJ's unique ability to seamlessly fuse trance and techno into a lush slipstream that works well, whatever the hour. Recorded in Sydney, Australia, in 1998, Digweed's mix envelops a multitude of dance styles and coats them all with his effortless, lengthy, pace-building method. Few DJs could move so smoothly from the sunrise tranquillity of Fortunato & Montresor's "Imagine" to the busyness of Danny Tenaglia's "Elements," let alone Fatma Morgana's "Apache Spur" to the franticness of Crystal Method's "Keep Hope Alive." Yet Digweed makes it all seem so natural, the warmth and mobility of the mix inviting listeners to stop whatever they're doing, shut up, and dance. --Steffan Chirazi

5.0 out of 5 stars Digweed's best GU set 2 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Digweed's done a few of these "guest starring XXX DJ" releases and this is the best, from just before the turn of the millennium when stuff was crazy and recorded live, rather than flung together on a PC by some nobody borrowing a DJs name who might have played things on some recent outing. This is from the days when Digweed had a knack for finding tracks that worked in sequence and could tell a story over the course of a couple of hours.....sadly nowadays he just pops stuff from his adopted Bedrock label together in no particular order for an audience that must be half asleep, or just so completely jaded that the indifference goes unremarked. Definitely a collectable, ranking alonside his Renaissance offerings.

3.0 out of 5 stars Back Way Back when 14 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well what can i say.. I love Digweed and what he has done for the clubbing scene. He has to be one of the most respected DJs on the circuit. He puts everything into all his well thought out CD's, and appreciates the difference between a CD and a Club. This CD has stood the test of time and still has some Big Tunes that get your heart racing - but well over 10yrs old, its not one I put on anymore - its fast, dark and quite dirty, also a little too progressive for my liking (it is 2010 now) but for any diggers fan - well worth the purchase..

I would best describe this as a 'lively' album; full of trance & beats. If you like your music like that, you'll enjoy this album. A couple of the tracks are a fraction too long for their own good in my opinion but with 25 tracks, there's more than enough to keep you interested overall & it hasn't stopped me giving this 5 stars. The first disc begins with a couple of chill-outs and quickly gets up to speed which prepares you perfectly for no.2 which has got some real floor thumpers. I give this a strong thumbs up. Try it for yourself!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 1 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Listening to the first nothern exposure series got into john digweed and sasha. And when i got john digweeds global underground in sydney i was not disappionted. The first CD is slower dark hypnotic and quite minimal at times. interesting to listen to punchy mixing and sounds that fly from your left ear to your right.Ending with the perfect progressive tune (Albion Air) to get you ready to accept the second CD. The second CD is the better one as it slowly build straight from the start. flawless mixing, sometimes in key and good variation between trance & techno. This CD reaches the best part when Deepsky's Stargazer hit's it's breakdown and from then you are hooked. then brought down in energy only a (bit though)by PvD's Words, and then some more progressive grooves to finish of one of my all time favourite CD's

5.0 out of 5 stars Those who dislike the first disk are not to bright! 3 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've read all the previous comments and most of the people reviewing this CD don't seem to comprehend it. The general comment is that nobody enjoys the pace of the fist CD. Well to all you bananas out there who only listen to this type of music for the sole purpose of dancing I say "Wake up". The fist disc was designed for people who like to chill, watch a sunset or sunrise and make passionate love while being in that induced state of mind. This music is not only for you speed junkies who need their fast pace sound to keep them "up". The entire compilation does keep me very satisfied.

5.0 out of 5 stars more than excellent 27 Dec 2000
By R. Friesel Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD continues to prove its worth to me. I've had it for quite some time now and it hasn't gotten old yet. The two CDs in this set converge, yet are distinct from each other at the same time and this set serves (I feel) as a milestone and measuring stick for the Global Underground series, as well as mixCDs in general.
Disc one is the more adventurous of the two. It begins with an ethereal tone, floating inward from silence with "Imagine" before exploding into straight out trance with "Blu Savannah" only for Digweed to take the mix and ground it in a much grittier, heavier style of music. I am hesitant to label the tracks sandwiched between the Liquid Language track and the closer by Albion with a style. They don't quite seem to be trance. Nor deep house. Nor hard house. A deep techy hard melodic housey trance...? Regardless, the mix is expert and bold and for as much throttling of the ears and the soul that the middle portion does, he lets everyone off easy with a club classic: "Air" by Albion.
Disc two is a little more predictable, a little more formatted. Easier to pin down, I'd say it's progressive trance -- but solid, building up nicely, exploding, then coming down. It kicks off well enough with that "Apache Spur" (which happens to have one of the catchiest basslines I've ever heard), peaks early with "Release", dips down and gets a bit techy for a few tracks until it blows up again with "Stargazer" and "Words" -- going off on an arguably psychedelic tip. Following "Words," the CD takes a turn as if it were headed back to the sound exhibited on the first disc, hitting you one last time with an unheard of mix of "Keep Hope Alive" and then bubbling out with "Out of It."
Overall, excellent and a good CD to keep around as a benchmark by which to measure the performance of others. Of Digweed's available mixCDs, I am undecided which to suggest above all others. If you own none, buy the "Bedrock" set first -- it's more eclectic. And when it comes down to this one versus Hong Kong -- flip a coin. You'll be equally pleased. Just remember, while Sasha often gets more hype -- Digweed is the man to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just let John do it 6 Jun 2000
By alexvino - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
So you've tried explaining to your out-of-town friends what good modern music is. No avail. You've tried convincing your parents that you no longer hang with the long-haired roadies. Forget it. Fitting the bridge-and-tunnel element into the Manhattan clubs? Don't even ask.
At least John Digweed can take care of the music. That is, if you play Sydney 1 to weed out the losers and Sydney 2 - when the real party begins. Indeed, Synday 1 starts out a little slow and remains mellow throughout. If chill is the goal, you can stop there and be happy. But if a wider-than-you've-imagined spectrum of modern music is something you'd wanted to show off (as well as enjoy yourself), you'll need Sydney 2. If you need a sampler of all there is to hear of electronica, trance, techno, and dance in one album, John's got it on the second CD.
After a mellow start, "Subversal" hints that there's more to come. "Release" so confirms. By the time "Steel Blue" comes along, you ought to be on the phone gathering the crew for Twilo where John plays every last Friday of each month. Save your breath and do listen to tracks 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 in one sitting (err, dancing - you won't sit still, believe me). Do stick around for "Propaganda" to top the experience off... and do wish that this kind of music does not become illegal.

John Digweed does an amazing job as usual on this record. I suggest looking at the Northern Exposures with him and Sasha too.
