Credit where it's due,with northern exposure,as with renaissance,Sasha and Digweed captured a set of tracks that represent history itself.
In response to one of the comments below,there was no particular mix designated to either Sasha or Digweed individually.as in the case of renaissance it was all done digitally.no doubt,they selected the tracks and experimented with what would have the maximum impact to the listener but obviously that which was unachievable by simply mixing two records together.they did what any of us would have done had we access to the technology,and,make no mistake,they did it very well.

What the hell happened to these DJ's choice of music .

I was always amazed and enchanted by their fantastic tune selection in the mid ninties.

Their neurons and synapses must have stopped firing after that because this is perhaps their greatest work.

Best tracks anyway are these IMPO

God Within Raincry (Spiritual Thirst)
Future Sound Of London, The Cascade (Part 1)
Humate / Rabbit In The Moon East (The Opium Den Mix)
Banco De Gaia Heliopolis (Eedupolis Dog Mix)

so just get your coppers pennies dollars Euros pounds out and please buy these tracks and play to your listeners

They really transcend mundane reality :)

First and foremost EVERY sasha & digweed, prog house fan must own this vinyl selection, its a slice of history and a sad reminder just how far ahead of its time this album was on its release, the only problem i have is that banco de gaia - last train to Lhasa is way too slow, and as someone else pointed out i think digweed played this on 45 and pitched it down but i still find it hard to mix. Im not going to go over the tracks one by one as im sure this has been covered in the previous comments, however, I would like to comment on the repress which alot of people seem to commenting on. I brought my copy of this from hard to find records in 2006 for £40, when i asked "is this a repress/white label copy" they vehemently told me no its the original...bollox!!...i thought id got a bargain. Firstly, the stickers around the rings of the vinyl have cracks in them [i will upload a photo to show this] which when you run your finger over them you cant feel them which tells me they have been copied. Secondly, im not entirely certain about the outer cover, this feels like a copy aswell but cannot really tell having never had the original. However, the actual press of the vinyls is good, some are a bit crackly in places [especially the start of some of the tracks which makes me think again these were copied from the original, the crackling is particular bad i noticed during the piano break in William orbit - water from a vine leaf] but they mix fine. if anyone else can shed any further light on what ive discussed above i would be glad to hear from you.

I have 2 copies of this,
Now i am unsure as I can't find on here about a Re-press but i have read there are some.
(bootleg or real repress)
My old copy has a black sticker saying 22 tracks unmixed
My other copy does not and it has a bigger print so the fount and images are larger.
The "W" of the symbol on the front is very close to the spine,
"7pm" is in the bottom right at the back
where on the old its up more.
Also if you know your print you can tell its a scan of the original art work.
not the best
The north part of the vinyl set does not have the white compass in the background.
but the south part does, also the print is finer too on both sets
my old copies has the white compass on both sets

The vinyl quality and sound are like any other All Good.
I just would like to know more about this if its a re-press or if its a bootleg
only a few where done from what i could find out but not much more detail on it.

I echo the thoughts of the previous reviewer who commented on the absolutely masterful transition between "Raincry" and "Out of Body Experience". That's mixing at its best. This CD is one of the most timeless releases in the history of dance music, period. It demonstrates great track selection, incorporating progressive house/trance classics from a variety of artists.

In almost every Sasha/Digweed mix, I vastly prefer the mix that was done by Sasha, and this CD is no exception. Supposedly the first disc was done by Sasha, and the first disc is the one that takes the cake.

Any fan of Sasha and Digweed and really any fan of the early dance music scene should be looking into adding this to their collection. Virtually every track on here is a timeless classic. Still sounds timeless to me to this day.

I dont know if anyone's aware but Rabbit in the moon's out of body experience is another one of those tracks where the remix artist takes all the credit and the original composer gets none. The track is a remix of Tori Amos' Precious Things, but as they did with Sara McLachlan's Possession the end remix has an entirely different feel. but in this case the piano line and of course vocal is straight from tori.

A note for collectors of Northern Exposure tracks: this release does not match the 2xCD set exactly. "Kites" and "Raincry" appear here in different mixes than the ones featured on the 2xCD. In addition, the tracks "I'm Free" and "The Gloom" have only one mix featured here, but on the 2xCD, two different mixes of these tracks are used back-to-back. Nonetheless, this is a wicked fun package.
