Sasha’s Decade In The Mix: The DJ Veteran Talks About Old Times and His New 'Involv3r' Album

4/3/2013 by Michaelangelo Matos

[SNIP]

I know that a lot of early mix CDs were basically done with ProTools. Was that the case with yours?

No, they were all handmade. I never used a computer until we started working on them. We recorded three or four mixes in one go and then we’d get that chunk in the computer and take it on to the next three or four [track sequence]. We didn't use it in any kind of complicated way that you go about in making mixed CDs now. If there was any editing done, it was done on the real tape machine on the studio or something.

Obviously, you and Digweed weren’t picking every single record together. Did you each take turns putting those strings of tracks together?

It's hard to recall it exactly. Definitely it was a collaborative effort, but I had certain records that really mixed together, whether it's three or four or even five or six, and then John would have a load to mix together. We fused together like that. On one CD I did more of the mixing, and on another one, John might have done more of it. A lot of that “Renaissance” CD came from playing out live.

Sasha & Digweed never pretended that they had mixed it live using vinyl on 2 or 3 decks. Even in the credits on the original 1994 release it states in the credits: "Studio mixed rather than live, featuring various overdubbed effects throughout the mix."
They wanted to create something almost perfect, timeless and classic and that's what they did. It's an album, a listening experience, something greater than the sum of it's parts, it's not supposed to replicate a spontaneous club mix.

Interesting to think that this compilation CD was not mixed properly on 2 turntables and maybe edited using an - Atari ST , maybe an Amiga ?

Best part of the CD for me is below. Those 3 tracks mixes together absolutely blow my mind!

Memphisto - State Of Mind (Quiet Mix), Moonchild - V.O.A.T (Original Mix), Sunscreem - Perfect Motion (Boys Own Mix).

So gave a listen to the 2004 remastered version, in its entry it's tagged as 'Progressive House, House, Trance', this one is tagged for some reason as Progressive Trance at the end. So would somebody mind to explain me which part is prog trance in this one apart Age of Love and the commercial State of Grace? Been searching for early 90s prog. trance like e.g. Liebs 'Blueprint' from 1994, and since this one is so praised by everyone and tagged as prog. trance gave it a shot and got disappointed. This is nothing but the pure house. I'm not saying it's bad - it's great, top notch house productions, just check your hearing before tagging it as prog. trance.

The re-issue with the 2 M-People tracks replaced is far better. A classic mix, the trancey prog tracks sound very dated now but so way ahead of it's time when it came out.

I am listening to Disc 1 of the original 1994 version right now on good headphones and I'm enjoying it. It is definitely of its time, but still good enough to carry me away. And, my copy is as near mint as a well-played digipak CD that old is ever going to be, including the tracing paper outer sleeve. I will take a picture of the whole thing ensemble and add it to the excellent page-by-page pics someone else has already posted. I also have Renaissance Part 2, but although the CDs are in good condition, the cover for that is in a much-worse state!

This is the family jewels of mixes from the 90's. Protect at all costs, though my kids like pulling it from the sleeve and spreading out the beautiful folded card inner. I'll rip their arms off if they destroy it.
Nothing I can say that hasn't been said. I think disc 3 was my favourite or was it 2? Jesus, I need to get it out now.
A once a year trip back to heaven awaits.

Well its now 2013 and this Renaissance Mix Collection has certainly stood the test of time. Music comes and goes, we all listen to new albums and artists but for those of us who were fortunate enough to witness the inception of the Mix Collection, it will always have special meaning.

Now as we approach the 20 year mark, this Mix Collection still has the ability to transport you back to a dance paradise in a musical tardis painted with the most amazing graffiti, and kicking out tunes to awaken the ghosts. The Mix Collection does not disappoint. It signifies an era and is packed in a presentation case that belongs in a gallery. Its a sensory masterpiece from front to back, from beginning to end. It tells a story and most of all it continues to make me smile.

I wonder how many of us have still got a perfectly intact rice paper'esque outer sleeve? :)
