I don't know anything about mixes or mixing and I'm sure its flawless and groundbreaking whatever bullshit people are saying but its about the music and for me the music is dead dull.
I bought this for £35 as people raved about it but perhaps its of its time as I find it well boring and lifeless. Have listened couple times and am losing the will to live. Someone tell me where my ears are going wrong, looks like a bad case of emperors new clothes?
Maybe try it again when I'm pissed.

The "mixing" on this was done totally in Pro Tools so it's not impressive in retrospect. They fooled us all. Anybody can edit and overlay beats together using software. This was not done on decks in the classic dj sense. Stop mythologising this cd. It's not real. They've said so.

How can I put in words the first time I heard this mix? I was already well into the dance and electronica world and i thought i had a pretty good knowledge of the tunes that were out there. Satellite Serenade kicked that thought into reality right away. None of the tracks sounded formulaic, this wasn't how dance mixes were meant to sound. I haven't heard any other mix since that has lived up to the idea of putting music into a journey in the way that this did.

It's hard to comprehend the impact this had with the way things are now in the internet age - you couldn't google the tracks or labels involved, and from my experience at least there weren't any other mixes going round at the time that were playing anything even remotely comparable, or mixed the tracks so perfectly. It really felt like something unique and I don't think anything in this digital age will ever have the same impact again. That lovely fold-out packaging with the visual track play times was the icing on the cake. All round perfect release.

Absolutely agree on your above point. The transition between the two tracks is flawless and given that I would often listen to this mix whilst going for a run, always brought me right into the hear and now. The original version of Kites by Simon Dupree And The Big Sound is worth checking out if you like 60s garage pop.

the ultimate template for mixing down-tempo trance, dark break beat and superlative epic house. The product of 10 years of genre changing electronic music that swept a generation. For those of us who loved mixing it changed the game. Yes, they took it into a studio and used Pro Tools to great effect but it was a vinyl driven mix built on perfect timing, immaculate beat matching and most importantly perfect key matching. There are many other brilliant mixing styles that suit different genres of house but without a doubt Sasha and Digweed will always be the 2 who blew every other DJ away.

I dug out this double CD from storage with the view of selling it on ebay having now got the vinyl bug. After giving the CDs a clean before playing to check that they wouldn't skip, I hit play and had forgotten just how good these CDs were. Timeless electronic tunes all expertly picked and sequenced. Decided within 10 minutes that this gem was far too good to sell and I'm keeping it :)
One other surprise is the excellent sound quality on these CDs and then I heard a few tell tale pops and crackles. This compilation is sourced from superior vinyl hence the improved sonics. Grab a copy whilst you can.

This is arguably the greatest mix album of all time, very little if nothing can top this.

The beauty of the North mix is achieved through an excellent track selection and perfect mixing, which takes you on an unforgettable journey painting a beautiful picture/atmosphere. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the journey.

The South mix, on the other hand, is a mix designed for the dance floor being filled with some top floor fillers as well as being darker in mood. The mixing is much like the North mix as it's again perfect.

All in all, this is a classic, timeless mix album, and a must own.
