Label: Ultra Records
Northern Exposure系列是两位合作的首张成功之作,同时发行了单CD(美版)和双CD(欧版,包括North和South两部分)版本.这张美版Mix更为紧凑,完美地顺应着house的高峰和ambient/downtempo的平缓,高超技艺贯穿始终.合作曲目包括Keiichi Suzuki, Future Sound of London, Rabbit in the Moon, Morgan King, Fuzzy Logic, William Orbit和Banco de Gaia等Dj的作品.有些听众偏爱于欧版的原始Mix,个人认为此版本更耐听.-部分译自网络
The mix CD. Whereas the market is flooded with a bunch of substandard, cookie-cutter, no-name DJ garbage, it's comforting to know that we can always turn to the true masters of the Art. While the pace of Northern Exposure 1 may be a little slower than their individual Global Underground sets (which are also excellent), the technical prowess displayed within this mix by Sasha & Digweed is extraordinary. While listening to it - even when I was paying attention - it was difficult to discern just when they were mixing in the next track and when they weren't. No mistimed beats, no unbalanced mixing levels, no mismatched tracks. The songs blend together so seamlessly that they can't help but stir your emotions. The problem with most of today's mixes is that while they are accurately mixed, they're rarely seamless. This CD belongs in every aspiring DJ's collection, for both inspiration and study of technique.
I love both CDs in this set, but if you're more into the faster sound of today's trance mixes, buy the import, since disc 2's considerably faster than disc 1, although expect songs from the mid-90s, as this mix was created in 1996. However, disc 1 has some of the most amazing mixing around to date, and is definitely my favorite of the two, making the purchase of the US release (which doesn't come with disc 2) a great choice regardless... and a more economical one if the import price gives you second thoughts.
Bottom line is that if you're a fan of these guys, you already have this set. But if not, click that "Add to Cart" button NOW! You won't be disappointed.
