Global Underground 19: John Digweed In Los Angeles

DIGGIN DIGWEED two cd's of truly decent twisted dance music. As Cd1 comes in it grabs you by the balls with truly a dark progressive journey with some real stand out tracks and cd 2 slightly deeper but riding at the high level you would expect and has to be in my top 5 of GU releases. Dare I say intelligent twisted thought provoking house music, as you expect to find with some of the veterans of the game. NU TO GU? Try this one and you will be delighted, also look for Sashas Evolver 1 and 2, amazing thoughtful atmospheric breakbeat journey, Danny Tenaglia for deep tribal house, Dave Seaman in a similar vein to Digweed, Deep Dish for dark slightly twisted mix and Adam Freeland bringing great underground breaks and pumpin rock type tunes out to play.

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.

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.

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!!

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!)

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.

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!

i just recently listened to this comp again...10 or so years after it's release and maintain it's one of the best dark, deep and driving prog mixes ever published!. it has everything...and it's proven to be timeless...After spending endless amounts of money on comps from all the major labels, downloading mixes and so on....this is still one of the best...FACT!...any progressive house music fan should have this in their collection.
