For the best mixed CDs you cant beat Digweed and Hernan Cattaneo imo.
For me Digweed's Fabric release was amazing.. not to mention Los Angeles and his other GU releases.
I also really enjoyed Cattaneo's Perfecto realese South America (i know perfecto.. amagine that!) That is flawless mixing right there!
Another DJ that really stands out to me as far as mixing is concerned is Josh Wink. You should check out some of his mixed stuff (along with his produced stuff too, its all good). His Profound Sounds series was excellent imo.
And then of course you have all the other classics.. Northern Exposure, Rennanisance, GU, Fabric ect..
I agree too about Cattaneo's South America. Especially cd2 ..... and among the tp 5 are always the 2 Northern Exposures and Communicate imo.
Re: Original Tracks that first spawned the genre 'Progressive House' (109 replies, posted in General Bedrock Discussion)
I thought Dom Phillips ran with the genre after the original Renaissance release? Therefore, any of the tracks from Renaissance.
Nah - the term was being used well before Ren.1.
I remember Judge Jules interviewing Sasha on Kiss around '93 well before his Jomanda remix was released and the pair of them mocking the phrase 'progressive' having been coined - distinctly remember Jules saying, "journalists eh - what are they like?" and Sasha just kind of grunted in agreement!
Aside from the CJ Bolland track that opens it I'd safely say that all the tunesSasha played on this mix ( http://www.bedrock.org.uk/socialise/vie … p?id=44679 ) were early Progressive House tunes - along with the Guerilla output as already mentioned, and some of the stuff on labels like Stress, Cowboy, Tomato, JBO et al.
The longer 'progressive' went on the more and more tightly defined it became as a sound - early years of the 90's it encompassed a much wider range of sounds than it did even by the middle of the decade.
