SOMETHING FOR THE WEEKEND: Sasha & Digweed, Ministry of Sound’s Sixth Birthday [September 1997]
It’s hard to believe that the Northern Exposure mix series – arguably the mixes that established Sasha & John Digweed as dance music’s partnership du jour (following the duo’s earlier Renaissance pairing) – is 21 years old this year.
Last September, Digweed surprised listeners to his long-running Transitions radio show when he uncovered a classic show from the vaults, taken from the publicity tour for Northern Exposure and recorded live at Ministry of Sound‘s sixth birthday.
The mix, from September 1997, is a fantastic journey through house, prog and trance; a relic from a time when genres didn’t really matter, as long as the tunes were pumping.
Capricorn’s 20Hz, Morgan King’s I’m Free, Plush Plastique’s Dr King’s Dream and the excellent Wormhole by Tom Wax & Jan Jacarta are some of the standout tracks. Play it LOUD…!
