Renaissance is at it again with a new three-disc set from their Renaissance 3D series, this time bringing in Roger Sanchez to mix things up. Home (Disc 3) of the mix is an eclectic collection of artists and groups faultlessly compiled.

Sanchez calmly launches the assortment of tracks with the Balearic grooves of Afterlife and Massive Attack’s “Weather Storm” then switches things up to the chilled dub styles of Findlay Quaye and Dawn Penn. The body of the mix consists of ’80s funk, including the Tom Tom Club’s classic “Genius of Love” and Patrice Rushen’s “Forget Me Nots.”

The album concludes with Mylo’s brilliant remix of Sia’s “Breath Me,” as well as Daft Punk’s “Fresh” and cuts by Klaxons and Ben Watt. From start to finish Home (Disc 3) is a non-stop voyage through genres and time – the perfect blend of the unordinary, especially from Sanchez.
