When indie rock and cheesy pop dominated the national charts and the underground was desperate for a sound of its own, along came two young British DJ’s, both making their mark in the burgeoning UK Rave scene and eager to take an underground phenomenon to another level. A meeting of minds and musical collaboration soon lead them to become one of the worlds most internationally recognized and acclaimed dj duos in electronic music, to this day. They became the first dj collective and tastemakers to bring dance to the foreground of mainstream music, when in 1994 the inception of their partnership formed as they released the seminal triple disc compilation Renaissance The Mix Collection which provided a yardstick for all future DJ mix albums. Sasha and John Digweed have never given in to the mainstream yet have always somehow defined it.

What followed in 1996 was the infamous Northern Exposure double disc set on Ultra Records. And in the same year, the British duo were invited to share a monthly residency at the world’s most renown club, New York City’s Twilo, becoming the first British DJs to hold a residency. With their awe-inspiring all-night sessions, Sasha and John conquered New York City. Soon, the rest of America became transfixed by the maestros’ blistering sets that captivated crowds in cities across the nation.

“What distinguishes Northern Exposure from other DJ’S mixed compilations available these days is how cerebral DJs Sasha and John Digweed’s mixology is. Instead of your typical Dance mix USA volume, these guys thrive on transition as much as they do groove. They gracefully combine their notably fierce progressive house and fluttering-yet filthy dance music signature style with a lush selection of melodies and banging anthems from groundbreaking dance artists of yesterday, today and tomorrow.” -Smith Galtney, Time Out

Packaged together and sold to the masses at face value. Never before in mainstream music had anyone taken the initiative to fuse together underground anthems and deliver them in the form of a dj set. Flavored, motivated and driven by another’s interpretation with their own original productions in the mix, the superstar dj was born and the line between dj and artist was quickly blurred.

“Sasha and Digweed have really stepped right up to the plate and hit an all American home run.” -Smith Galtney, Time Out

Indeed, they did. It is their ability to reach people by hooking their audience into the personality behind the decks.

“Presiding over the packed dance floor like new millennial rockstars, the two pioneering DJs took turns spinning piping hot wax, whipping the throbbing crowd in and out of frenzy.” – Boston Herald

Sasha’s trademark power-packed, emotional sets embody the essence of his highoctane moments. He propels listeners into the future of electronic music by constructing innovative and forward-thinking concepts. While John’s sets are enveloped in imagination and invention without heroic pretensions his sets are filled with moodiness and musical mystery but held down with a punchy distinctiveness and earthly rhythm. Always emanating a sense of boundlessness he overlaps dream events that spill into reality with an enormous certainty. However, working together they bring their individual purposeful eclecticism to the forefront both through their selection of songs and their supreme mixing skills.

“In the same way bands like the Chemical Brothers, Prodigy and the The Crystal Method broke new ground last year with recordings, that overflowed out of the clubs and into the homes of the mainstream America, DJ duo Sasha and John Digweed are setting the agenda for the next chapter in the rewriting of the textbook of modern dance music. For those timid about this brave, new electronica-drenched world, this is a good primer.” – Eric Nonacs, Jane Magazine

“With DJ tag team extraordinaire Sasha and John Digweed” only slated to perform through 3:30 A.M. at Bonnaroo, Sasha and John Digweed’s set continued well into the morning, providing a sound track while I moseyed on back to the Spin compound as the sun rose, smiling and shaking my head in a blissful confusion, wondering what had happen to the past five hours.” – William Goodman, 2007
