What can be said about this CD that hasn't been said before? This is the stuff that got many people in their late 20's to 30's into dance music. I was converted from being an indie kid to a clubber in an instant when my friend put this on her car stereo, and soon bought a copy for myself. It was soon deleted and became an instant collectors' item. I will never forget hearing some of the tracks for the first time. If you can get hold of a copy, buy it!

This is the BEST mix album ever. There is no doubt about it.
It features some of the best tunes of the time with the best mixing you have ever heard. It still sounds fresh even today and this is even after having the original for 10 years. If you are in any doubt as to whether or not to buy it - don't be just buy it! If you are at all into Digweed or Sasha then you will love it end of story.

Inspired. Sasha and John Digweed triple DJ mix CDs from the glory days of house in 1994. This was the first and is considered by many to still be the best DJ mix every released. It set the standard for all DJ mix albums to come.
A sublime and expertly mixed journey through house music of the time. With excellent and collectable packaging too.

It's funny looking at the packaging now - all the 16th century paintings from the Sistine Chapel, famously created by Michelangelo, reflect this album as a part of musical history. It was the first ever music album to be fully mixed to the extent of re-creating a club experience - Technics MK2's and all, by a DJ (or 2 for that matter). Upon reading the story that's written across the flaps inside the packaging, we discover that this isn't your average annual of songs. It is, in fact, a reflection of the club night between the years 1992 and 1994, when Renaissance; a Northern club that was dogged with worry as to how successful it could be, was just getting started. So what better way to celebrate the change in dance-music than by releasing a fully mixed 3 CD album mixed by 2 young men... commonly known to each other as Alexander Coe (aka Sasha) and John Digweed?

Digger's was probably the luckiest DJ of his era. After sending a promo Tape of his work to the new 'Renaissance' club, that already had Sasha as a DJ, they were amazed by his technical skills. Hence, under 2 years later, he gets to mix the greatest DJ album of all time, only a matter of years after just being a mobile gardener to pay for his records. All I can say is wow.

Unlike any other album I've bought, Renaissance (I simply call it this for short, it was the first album after all) originally came in a wax-paper sleeve, which held together the gate-fold packaging that opens up into a long 4-squared section. Flaps fold over to cover the cd's, making it look very neat, whilst also cleverly holding the tracklisting for each cd when you flip it up. These CD panels then fold together, and form a book like opening, which has always reminded me of a bible!

I'm reviewing the original 1994 3-cd set and listening to my own as I play it. There are polarised views about this, and about the 2010 re-recording [without the M People tracks because of licensing issues]. This gets five from me because, after 19 years, I can still listen to most of it without cringing too often. It's a bit like listening to cassettes of desk recordings from Amnesia, Pacha and Café del Mar from the 80s and early 90s; enough of it stands up to be worth a listen. Maybe it's an age thing, as some of the comments on the UK and US Amazon sites, about both versions, are not complimentary and are, I'm guessing, a lot younger than I am [58]. As I listen just now, I am remembering Goa beaches, Thums Up Cola and DayGlo in 1995. That will do for me.
I won't go into the lush packaging, track selection or quality of mixing - plenty of others have already commented. I would recommend the discogs entry - check it out, as one commenter there insists that the mixing was digital, referring to a discussion with John Digweed. So, a comment elsewhere about live mixing on Technics decks may be wide of the mark. Those interested might also check the wiki article on this album and the one on Sasha and John Digweed. Some interesting info there. Actually, I don't care. I'm still listening and enjoying [mostly].
