This 1999 collection celebrates Paul Oakenfold’s two-year residency (1997 to 1998) at Cream, the legendary club staged at Nation in Liverpool.

“Renaissance: The Mix Collection” was a groundbreaking and influential compilation when released in 1994. A testament to the DJ talents of Sasha and John Digweed, the mix remains a stunning achievement to this day.

Ten years after its original issue, “Renaissance: The Mix Collection” was updated by its creators for a new anniversary edition. The remastered version replaces M People’s “Renaissance” and “How Can I Love You More” with OMD’s “Stand Above Me” and Anthony White’s “I Can’t Forget You,” allegedly due to ‘licensing issues.’
(if memory serves me, Sasha pissed off somebody, who then withheld the M People tracks)
