The year 2004 marked the ten-year anniversary and re-issue of Sasha & John Digweed’s seminal “renaissance: The Mix Collection” compilation, the landmark CD of its kind. It is the great Daddy of all DJ mix compilations – the cornerstone for all things progressive, and a massive influence for legions of DJs to follow. However, it wasn’t the only DJ mix of note to celebrate its ten years. Just as notable in its own right, it was the ten-year milestone of the broadcast of Paul Oakenfold’s Radio One Essential Mix, frequently referred to simply as “the Goa Mix”.
