5.0 out of 5 stars A mix to wax lyrical about!!, 22 Aug. 2002
This review is from: Northern Exposure: Mixed By Sasha & John Digweed (UK 2 Disc Edition) (Audio CD)
The title "Northern Exposure" perfectly encapsulates the voyage that this mix takes you on. From the opening sample of David Attenborough on "Satellite Serenade" you are transported to a beautiful, icy wilderness. The extremely rare opening record sets the mood for the rest of the mix, with its meandering introduction and crisp strings and it is then perfectly complemented by the (seamless) mix into "Cascade" by Future Sound of London".
And so it goes on. Each evocative record is complemented by the next and the set weaves and deviates, breaks and builds as a result of Sasha & John Digweed's thoughtful, effortless mixing.
The beauty of this compilation is that it stands alone from the other anthem upon anthem sets that flood the market. Sasha and Digweed have carefully selected lesser known progressive classics from as early as 1992 from thoroughbred stables such as "Guerilla" and "Fluid" and blended them to create a timeless classic.
The records that particularly stand out are "Obsession" by Fuzzy Logic, "Phoenix" by Evolution, "Liquid Cool" by Appollo 440 "Heliopolis" by Banco De Gaia and "These Waves" by Young American Primitive. However, all of the records featured, slot neatly into the theme of the mix, bar "Dark & Long" by Underworld. Although it's a fantastic tune, it doesn't sit well with the rest the of the mix and the compilation could have ended on the crescendo of "East". However, this is a minor observation and overall this compilation is without doubt the most polished, most evocative and most original mix that I have ever bought. It has to be heard to be believed and should be in the collection of anyone who appreciates early progressive house and breaks.
