The Best Mix-CDs of All Time

#5 Sasha and Digweed – Northern Exposure

Considered the pinnacle of Sasha and Digweed’s joint efforts, Northern Exposure confirmed the mastery of both DJs. It’s what every mix-CD wants to be: timeless.

#4 Coldcut – Journeys By DJ

The title says it all about Coldcut’s landmark mix, a dizzying ride through genres and eras held together by the instinctive mixing of Matt Black and Jonathan More. A true cut ‘n paste classic.

#3 2manydjs – As Heard on Radio Soulwax Pt.2

Possessing flair often imitated but never bettered, the Dewaele brothers went mash-up mad on As Heard on Radio Soulwax Vol. 2. It’s a mix that started a movement.

#2 James Holden – Balance 005

Balance 005 captures a definitive moment in time for one of electronic music’s singular talents. Ethereal and experimental while never losing its techno pulse, it’s a masterpiece.

#1 Sasha – Involver

Involver was a labour of love for Sasha, and it shows. Each of the ten tracks were tweaked and manipulated in the DJ’s studio to create the perfect mix. And it may well be just that all these years on.
