- Sasha And Digweed Renaissance Mix
+1 remember when my house mate bought it at uni, such a classic, they were selling for £100 odd when I looked on ebay before. I have a load of Sasha and Digweed stuff, might listen to the Qat Collection later 🙂 saw them DJ a few years back which was great, something I had wanted to do for years and yearsPosted 4 years agomuddyfoolMember
First year of uni classic for me too. I’m at work so can’t listen properly but just had a quick skip through which was enough to raise my pulse by 20bpm or so – thanks OP 🙂
I have the follow up, part 2, plus the first Northern Exposure, on CD in a box at home somewhere. Not listened for years but might have to dig them out tonight…Posted 4 years agoKingofBiscuitsMember
Yep, great album that I had (copied from a mate) on cassette for the car. Some seriously good mixing by Sasha at one point on the first CD that makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.
I was 17 when Renaissance opened at Venue 44 in Mansfield and began attending not long after. Some brilliant (and messy) nights were had. Awesome period of time for clubbing and music. Reallly enjoyed the Renaissance event at the massive Que Club in Brum too. Never really got a feel for the place they moved to in Derby.Posted 4 years ago
I like pretty much all forms of electronic dance music from heavy DnB through breaks and progressive stuff but Goa trance is an abomination and should have been drowned at birth. Unless of course you are stood in a muddy field at 4am with a shed load of substances down your neck. Then, and only then, is it mildly acceptable.
Do you live in a van Bimbler? Maybe have a couple of dogs on string and a wardrobe full of purple tie dye clothing?Posted 4 years agoGunzMembermboySubscriber
Bit younger than some of you guys, but remember this being released when I was 19, and it stayed in my car for a very long time thereafter…
From then on in though I felt Digweed started to go really boring, and Sasha was much better on his own.
I got heavily into the Global Underground stuff after that, particularly this one by Nick Warren…
By about 2002 though had got a bit bored of the whole prog thing, and got much more into probably slightly more mainstream house…Posted 4 years ago

Just been having a hunt round to try and buy it. Can’t find the bugger anywhere. Damn shame.

Love the Northern Exposure mixes. They’re going for crazy money now on Amazon/Ebay.
All the Renaissance Mixes were amazing, just recently purchased Vol. 4 as I lost it. Dave Seamen is an amazing DJ, very underated. I remember watching him Dj in the tree at Bar M back in the day. Awesome times.Posted 4 years agomomoSubscriber

Whilst I grant you that it’s pretty special, it’s frankly blown into the weeds by Paul Oakenfold’s Goa Mix, featured on the Essential Mix, 1994 (the follow up, Perfecto Flouro, whilst not as good, still beats the Sasha/Digweed effort).
Good call, I remember being handed an old c90 with a grainy recording of this back in the day, wore that tape out listening to it so often! I’m off to YouTube in search of it now, might lock myself in a dark room and relive my youth 🙂Posted 4 years agodannybgoodeSubscriber
Absolutely love the first Renaissance mix – the original, not the re-release without the M-People tracks.
That Jeff Mills at Liquid Rooms is pretty special too.
For me though, the mix CD of them all is Trade Vol 4 – CD 3 by Pete Wardman. Just the most beautifully crafted, well constructed set I’ve ever heard.
Also check out the early Journeys by DJ – Billy Nasty, Judge Jules (even if you detest the man its actually very good), Coldcut – 70 Minutes of Madness, Norman Jay and Gilles Peterson.
You’ve also got to listen to Fabric Live – John Peel – just incredible.
And then the Global Undergrounds – both Tony De Vit mixes and the early Sasha and the John Digweed.

i only have CD1 of renaissance remaining, the others have mysteriously vanished! got it converted to flac now forever! but gutted not got the other 2.
northern exposure stuff was good too but the only thing that came close were some of the essential mixes from around that era.
some of the oakenfold, digweed, sasha, warren, seaman and scott bond mixes were amazing!Posted 4 years ago
