Music & Art: Vault 49 Designs Revamped "Renaissance" Compilation


With "Renaissance: The Mix Collection," Manchester DJ duo Sasha & Digweed ignited the British progressive house movement in 1994 and went on to become the first ever DJ/club mix to reach gold status in sales in the U.K. The triple-disc set (featuring works by Moby, Leftfield, Fluke, Bedrock, EMF, Inner City) is arguably the best dance mix compilation ever put out.

A decade after it first release, Studio Distribution will be re-releasing "The Mix Collection" in the U.S. on January 25. The new anniversary set will be available in two formats: a deluxe edition and a very special limited edition with re-mastering by Sasha and John Digweed using modern applications that weren't available 10 years ago for a clearer sound.

The spectacular sleeve art for the disc set is made by illustrator group Vault 49. The UK-based design team achieved international recognition in 2002 for a series of fly-posting campaigns in London that was picked up and showcased by the design and fashion press.

Today, less than two years since the collective began, Vault 49 has been commissioned to produce international design and advertising for MTV, VH-1, Levi's, Kookai, Express fashion, Mambo, and Miss Selfridge. Recently, they opened a studio in Manhattan.

The group recently expended its fine artistic lines into their own fashion line "Roule", which can be found on their website.
