About John Digweed

Part of the jet-setting DJ elite, John Digweed paid his dues to reach the top of the house music world. After staging his own successful "Bedrock" nights in Hastings, Digweed was booked by the London club, Renaissance, in 1992, where he pioneered an edgier sound dubbed "epic house." The first Renaissance compilation album, mixed by Sasha and Digweed, was something of a dance music milestone, critically acclaimed and bringing new credibility (and new audiences) to house music. He also released his own material under the Bedrock banner, notably 1995’s "For What You Dream Of," used as backdrop on the cult hit, TRAINSPOTTING, adding to the film's frenetically spooky aura. In early 1999, Digweed enjoyed a huge club hit with "Heaven Scent," and in the early-'00s released several acclaimed mix albums for the Boxed, Fabric and Renaissance labels.
