John Digweed has set such a high standard with his previous releases in the Transitions series, that it was always going to be hard to beat with Transitions 4. However, I think he might just have done it.

Don't expect more of the same as Transitions 1 to 3. This one is an altogether more intricate mix, with no less than 22 tracks crammed in to its 73 minutes. And musically it is a darker journey as well. Digweed has cut down slightly on the uplifting melodies, and instead focussed on more bass-driven and percussive elements. The style still sits somewhere inbetween progressive and techno, but this time definitely leaning more towards the techno end of the scale.

Such is the level of layering of elements of different tunes that it is hard to find a single point in the mix where you can really say that you are only listening to one track. Now and then a familiar sound will drop in, such as Claude VonStroke's remix of Plasmik - Pitch It, but it is not in the form you've heard it before, being accompanied by the bassline from another track altogether. As a result you are always kept on your toes, never sure of what clever edit or mash-up Digweed is going to throw at you next.

Highlights for me would be the first few tracks, which build almost imperceptibly while subtle layers of melody are introduced. Where one track ends and another starts I couldn't tell you. This is progressive mixing in the truest sense.
And then the closing section of the CD, which features driving percussion with subtle yet sinister melodic elements and throbbing basslines driving you ever onwards, into one final epic 12 minute edit of Soliquid's `Picnic Bugz'.

Vol 1 was excellent.

Vol 2 and 3 were pretty boring with the usual plodding chirps, bleeps and rattles that is all the fashion at the moment.

Vol 4 has got back to having some energy which dare I say it would make you dance, recommended.

Every Transitions gets better and more (for the want of a better expression - 2am'ee!)....real stomping dancefloor stuff from Digweed....nothing boring or dull or monotonous....this Set at first listen blew me away (which is very tough to do) and then the more listens the more you appreciate what a true talent this DJ is amongst fallen "legends" and others who havent stuck to their roots of style of the music they played years ago...understanding that trends & technology have played their part, but Digweed seems to be the only DJ around today that has stayed true to his beliefs that good proggy dance music is still around and just as amazing as it has ever been.

I cannot rate this disc highly enough, not purely for the Digweed enthusiast, but even for the dance music fan, you would be doing your mix collection a diservice if you didnt include this set.

Saw the chap two weeks ago and best set i've heard in 4 odd years by anyone so roll on Transitions 5 is all I can say!...

Buy it and get ready to be jaw dropped!....

If you're anything like me, your love of dance music will mean it features heavily in your music collection, covers various genres and features mixes by the well known to the not so well known DJ's. You'd be happy to put any one of those albums on to listen to, that's for sure, but now again, you happen to stumble across a mix that just seems to resonate that little bit more than the others do and in the process, becomes a firm `personal favourite' that sits `up there' with the greatest.

For me. John Digweed's Transitions Vol. 4 did just that.

I'm not a complete stranger to Digweed but as I own only a couple of his triple / double CD mixes, one being his earlier Renaissance days, the other on the GLOBALUNDERGROUND label where he played in Hong Kong, unlike a lot of the reviewers here, I'm not so familiar with the Transitions series.

This, whilst some may argue doesn't allow me the right to pontificate on how it compares to the other 3, that, I feel, is to my benefit.

Whether Digweed had put this mix together or somebody else, I'd still rave about it. The fact it is a Digweed mix however was just the rubber stamp that on listening to it for the first time saw me grinning inanely at his renowned expert, fluid ability to move from one track to the next perfectly executed. That appreciation grows more when you listen to it again....... and again........ and again.

From here on in I'd have to echo what some others have commented on in terms of the `feel' of this mix; there is something `dark' about it but by the same token it's a reassuringly positive `dark' that leaves you unable to control your foot from tapping and your heading bobbing along as you move seamlessly into the journey.

While the first three editions of the Transitions series all had great ingredients, the cake just didn't seem to taste perfect when you took it out of the oven. Transitions Volume 4 finally gets it right. Volume 4 delivers some of the most pleasing moments in the series, and most notably these almost always occur in the middle of an adventurous layering of productions.

The obvious highlights might be how Kabale & Liebe's `Mumbling Yeah' hovers over the gritty `In Spite' by Jeff Bennett, or perhaps how Sian's `Wear Your Scars Like Medals' explodes into action after fighting its way out of Myers Briggs' mesmerising `Forever'. But scratch the surface a bit more, and you'll uncover my personal highlights, such as the abrupt change in mood from being in the clouds from Guy J's `Under Pressure' to being dumped and kicked around in the grime with `Rezolution', an important transition that drives the mix into the darkness. It's in this period where my very favourite moment is captured--the instant Digweed begins to move from the pounding Jamie Stevens mix of `Mineral Drive' into the eerily captivating `Dreams Of Bells' by Pig & Dan. It's the 6am moment that John has finally been able to capture in a Transitions album, and it's the thing that the rest have been sorely missing.

While the sound in Transitions Volume 4 is yet another collection of minimal techno's finest melody makers, the presentation and delivery of this mix has all the hallmarks of what made John's progressive sound so effective. There is a somewhat logical progression in this mix: it seems to all come together from first beat to the last, and while a cynic may see this as predictable, I see it as how a mix should be delivered.
