It’s funny how anonymity can drive fame. When London Grammar began promoting their song “Hey Now” over Youtube in late 2012, they got a lot of attention not only because the song was amazing, but also because no one could find pictures of the band. The band name in plain white letters was all most of us could find. Since their major success in 2013, they’ve finally done some photo ops, sold out every date of their U.S. Tour, and even did a cover of INXS’s “Devil Inside” for a Game of Thrones trailer. Tourist brings this song in very soft and atmospheric then drops a little 2-step beat on the second half. Enjoy.
A true classic.
Anyone who loves electronica, house, progressive, progressive house, trance, psy-trance, ambient, or anything close to any of those genres… should own a copy of this release. Maybe it’s because the first Northern Exposure came out at the same time that I really fell in love with techno/electronica (1996)… but I have always felt that these two discs or two mixes embodied everything that was perfect about the art of DJing. Of course, Sasha and Digweed are not “turntablists”, they are DJs, producers, engineers, and artists. Northern Exposure was their second compilation as a duo, the first being Renaissance: The Mix Collection (released 1994). There are many people who argue that this was their best work to date and the pinnacle of DJ compilation. I recommend you bookmark this page so that you can come back and listen when you can devote enough time to listen uninterrupted. They are truly that good. Ladies and gentlemen… I give you Northern Exposure:
p.s. It is important to note that the US release only contained the first disc. So if you bought this in 1997 or later and it only had one disc, I’m afraid to say that you were missing out on a whole other journey.
