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.

If you find this review and haven't heard this CD, well its a must buy. This is the one that made both of them, it is one of the greatest and it still rocks all these years on.

Check out Liquid Cool and Sound System as my highlights of both disks but really the whole thing is amazing.

Play CD1 to those that aren't dance converts and CD2 to those that are, and play both to yourself anytime you want to realise how good DJs can be. It is no wonder that the vinyl and CDs for this are at astronomical prices.

Whatever form you can get this, just do it. This is the one that we talk about for a reason, Northern Exposure is the bomb!

The "transamazonian highway" samples are actually part of the TransAsian Express remix of Sattelite Serenade, the first track on the album, which I believe the orb did. That is why there was no separate mention of it on the sleevenotes, since they did not add the sample in themselves, it was part of the first track (I know because I have the original Satellite Serenade on vinyl).
