Global Underground 006: John Digweed, Sydney is a DJ mix album in the Global Underground series, compiled and mixed by John Digweed. The mix is a retrospective look at a set in Sydney, Australia.

Despite being the birthplace of house, garage, techno, disco and so many other forms of dance music, 90s America had remained fairly oblivious to the cultural tsunami taking place in nightclubs and on radio stations across Europe, Asia and beyond.

That all changed with the coming of John Digweed and his pal Sasha. Their residency at New York’s Twilo (the former Sound Factory) and extensive national touring propelled the more trancy European sounds and full-on DJ worship phenomenon into the spotlight in a big way. GU006 hit during this incredible period.

The mix was the first GU album to be given a full US release, and helped establish the ongoing success of brand in this notoriously difficult market to crack (even more so when peddling dance music.) It also helped Diggers further cement his already sky high reputation for quality track selection and beautifully seamless mixing.
