Bloke below probably explains it better Well, let's put to bed the lingering myth that this was the first commercially released mix CD. A quick scan of Discogs would demonstrate it's not even the first commercial mix CD with Sasha's name on it!
It was, however, the first major branded club compilation, and is responsible for all those Cream, Ministry Of Sound, Gatecrasher, Godskitchen et al compilations that used to overflow from the shelves of your local supermarket's CD section in the late s. A dubious legacy, you might think, and it may have been so if The Mix Collection's quality wasn't so obvious even 25 years after the fact. Sasha and Digweed's club sets had already been bootlegged to death by and it was clear that a mere turntable mix wasn't going to raise the stakes on what was already out there in every northern clubber's tape deck.
What they did instead set a standard that almost none of the myriad imitators could match. Yet this is how they did it, way back in Throughout the three discs there are numerous blends, overlays and transitions that are still jaw-dropping in their creativity even now.
Compare it to the mixing quality on any average rave tape from the early '90s and you realise just how great a leap forward this mix was when it was released, to the point that the vast majority of the mix CDs Renaissance were releasing 10 or 20 years later sounded frighteningly conventional by comparison.
But more than just the way it's mixed, what makes The Mix Collection such an enduring classic is the music on display. This really was a sweet spot in the evolution of British house music, where Italian piano drama, US vocal flamboyance and the breakbeaty influence of hardcore were bound together by the hard, trippy, banging sounds of first wave progressive house.
So many of these records are absolute stone cold classics, from an era where absolutely anything could be chucked into a track provided you could make it loop. So you have cavernous dub basslines alongside gothic chimes, filthy breaks riding side by side with trancey choral pads, and soaring piano lines, gritty guitar licks and hedonistic sax freakouts all colliding in one kaleodoscopic mix.
Sasha and Digweed selected the very finest cuts from the era of to sum up everything Renaissance was and had been, and in doing so created a timeless snapshot Solar Plexus - Sasha & John Digweed - Renaissance: The Mix Collection Vol. 3 a golden era of dance music, one that exists now only in ever-hazier halcyon memories and the delicate fraying folds of this classic collection.

Confirm will blow your room session momment. Reply Notify me Helpful. I wonder whether or not Sasha and Digweed pretended that they had mixed this live using vinyl with 2 or 3 decks.
