5.0 out of 5 stars Well F**K Me
The moment this album starts it sends hard and tingling vibes down your spine. Tracks like 'Love in Traffic' and 'Mine to Give' just show how the american scene is new and exiting. CD2 is a lot darker and starts with the deep house sound of 'My Release'. Soothing your senses with 'The Fall' is just another way that Digweed tells you he is in control. The ride doesnt just...

3.0 out of 5 stars A must for progressive trance fans but might pass others by
an unbelievably awesome opening track leaves the listener in no doubt that Digweed is going to be pushing the envelope with this contribution to the Global Underground series. Which is great if you are a devoted fan of progressive trance but might be harder to appreciate for those who aren't. For me personally, some tracks were great, others had me reaching for the skip...

5.0 out of 5 stars Well F**K Me, 12 Oct 2002
This review is from: Global Underground 19: John Digweed In Los Angeles (Audio CD)
The moment this album starts it sends hard and tingling vibes down your spine. Tracks like 'Love in Traffic' and 'Mine to Give' just show how the american scene is new and exiting. CD2 is a lot darker and starts with the deep house sound of 'My Release'. Soothing your senses with 'The Fall' is just another way that Digweed tells you he is in control. The ride doesnt just simmer towards an endpoint, Digweed keeps it going right up until the finish with 'One' and 'The Energy'. If you liked Dave Seamon in Melboune then you will certainly enjoy this piece of musical brilliance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Digweed is Don, 28 Feb 2001
This review is from: Global Underground 19: John Digweed In Los Angeles (Audio CD)
This mix literally speaks directly to my mind and is unlike any other mix I have ever heard and I have heard many. Sure there are many great mixes but I always return to this one. There is just something about how everything was laid out when Digweed laid it down that is magical. If you don't have GU Hong Kong, get it and get ready to be blown away. This mix is shows why Digweed is one of the most highly rated dj's in the world. Nothing short of spectacular from a man that shy's away from the limelight. The tunes are very underground and progressive but all of them are absolutely wicked. Much respects to John Digweed for putting together a killer of a mix.

an unbelievably awesome opening track leaves the listener in no doubt that Digweed is going to be pushing the envelope with this contribution to the Global Underground series. Which is great if you are a devoted fan of progressive trance but might be harder to appreciate for those who aren't. For me personally, some tracks were great, others had me reaching for the skip button. Maybe this set needs to be worn in and will start appealing as a cohesive whole after repeated listenings. Right now it doesnt. I had a tough time deciding whether to give this 3 or 4 stars, but settled on 3. CD 2 also seemed a little weaker to me than CD 1 (But oh what a killer opening track!)

5.0 out of 5 stars (If you're a progressive fan), 26 Feb 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Global Underground 19: John Digweed In Los Angeles (Audio CD)
First of all, let's get one thing straight. I like progressive house, and am therefore biased towards this compilation. I take no responsibility for someone who does not like the scene buying (and MAYBE being dissapointed by) this offering, on the basis of this review.
Right, now onto the compilation itself: Deep, sometimes dark, pumping progressive house. The first 2 tracks seem to sum up the whole compilation: Pole Fodder & CP's "Apollo Vibes", laid back and somewhat uplifting, leads onto Satoshi Tomie's dark "Love in Traffic" (which boasts some of the strongest vocals in house music). And then its more of the same. John Digweed's choice of tracks mean that the highpoints really do standout: for instance, the strings of "Music" are enhanced by the strong basslines that appear throughout the whole album. And if your just listening to it at home, then when the mood picks up late in CD2, you actually feel the nodding of your head become more pronounced.
Special mention goes to Bedrock's remix of WOW's "The Fall", Cass and Slide's "Genesis" and the last couple of tracks.
John Digweed seems to have the knack of bringing the best out of deep progressive house and he used his midas touch while making this compilation. Oh yeah, and the mixing is exactly what is to be expected of Digweed. However, I suppose I was disappointed that more of Bedrock's own material did not appear on compilation (nor, indeed, anything else involving John Digweed). However, other than that the choice of music is perfect so it is not really a criticism.
So we have 3 cases for potential buyers:
1)If you really don't like this type of music, it is unlikely (by the very nature of the content) to make you change your mind. For this reason it could be a waste of money.
2)If you are interested and have an open mind: buy this as some of the best the scene has to offer.
3)If you are already into progressive house, then buy this compilation...YOU WILL LOVE IT!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Digweeds Masterpiece!, 7 Mar 2010
This review is from: Global Underground 19: John Digweed In Los Angeles (Audio CD)
This is arguably the best mix in the GU series along with Sasha,s San Francisco. It does take while to sink in but once it does, it doesnt let go. It stands the test of time and is still as good now as it ever was. Such is the decline of the GU brand, that this mix has never been bettered, and judging by recent releases, it will be a long way off before it is, which is a shame. But, they only have themselves to blame for that, opting for DJs like Felix the housecat, layo & bushwacka, adam Freeland, is a sorry state of affairs. So do yourself a favour and remember when GU were label with a bit of class.

5.0 out of 5 stars John Digweed still one of the best progressive DJ's about, 16 Mar 2001
This review is from: Global Underground 19: John Digweed In Los Angeles (Audio CD)
Global Underground have done it again, bringing a top quality mix onto two CD's. The track selection is awesome with the likes of Medway's - Release, and the excellent Amnityville Dub of Quiver - One Last Time. GU19 continues with John's excellent line of mix cd's, Sydney & Hong Kong. Fantasticly put together with quality and procession, after recently seing Digweed play for 6 hours, i can tell you that this complilation truely reflects John's progressive, dark journey. Top stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars DOUBLE STACK THE BARRELS FOR THIS KILLER OF A MIX, 12 Jan 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Global Underground 19: John Digweed In Los Angeles (Audio CD)
Under any circumstances the man will excel and excite the people that have learned to appreciate a performer who cares just a little bit more. On a stage in a field to tens of thousands of people, or to a couple of hundred in a decked out basement club, the atmosphere midway through one of John Digweed's infamous extended sets is always a step beyond the standard dancefloor fevor.In addition to his presentation of other peoples music he has made numerous noteworthy trips to the studio, resulting in critically acclaimed remix and original production work. From the sublime reworking of M-Peoples "Renaissance", to his original hit "For What You Dream Of" under the Bedrock moniker, John Digweed has an attention to detail that is evident in every beat in this CD.He is versatile and exceptional in every aspect of producing and presenting music. The CD style is not only smooth but also second to none and while he is constantly changing he is best known for being consistently brilliant.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, 30 Aug 2004
This review is from: Global Underground 19: John Digweed In Los Angeles (Audio CD)
There are some tracks that are excellent, but most don't leave any impression. i have tried to get into this whole compilation, but often find me just selecting about 3 tracks to play.
I preferred pappa's nu breed or nick warren in amsterdam to this compilation.
