When music transports, taps into human experience and takes it on a journey we know we are in for something goddamn good. The ability to capture sounds on such a universal level and then have the whole world pulsating is where Sasha comes into the picture. Born Alexander Coe, the man behind the first ever UK DJ mix album and chart topping remixes (for the likes of The Chemical Brothers and Madonna) is taking over the desks this Saturday [October 13th] to bring us an evening of electronic bliss.
He has led dance music since the late '80s and has built a legacy that few, if any, DJs will ever match. You could say that the world first noticed Sasha when Mixmag made him their cover star in 1991. It was the first time a DJ had ever been featured on a magazine cover. In a lead article titled Sasha Mania: The First DJ Pin-up?, a journalist wrote, "Whereas there have been plenty of star DJs before, Sasha is the first to be so successful precisely because of his DJing."
Two decades on that statement still rings true. For all that Sasha has achieved - the seminal mix albums, the rock star tours, the enduring club anthems - it is his groundbreaking DJ moments that truly built his career. And there have been so many of them. Take 1994's 'Renaissance: The Mix Collection', the triple CD that Sasha mixed together with his longstanding DJ partner John Digweed. It was the world's first commercial DJ mix CD and is now considered one of electronic music's greatest ever recordings. "The first Renaissance CD really put myself and John [Digweed] on the map," says Sasha. "It was the first time anyone had done a properly packaged mix compilation."
Two years later Sasha and John Digweed produced another dance music milestone, the mix CD â€˜Northern Exposureâ€™, for Ministry of Sound. "That album was a chance for John and I to do something that was more about head music, a mix for after the clubs had finished," Sasha says. "I don't think anyone had done that before." There is also the not so small matter of Sasha's definitive 1999 mix CD, 'Global Underground 013: Ibiza'. It is, quite simply, the best-selling DJ mix of all-time. However, it is not just his decisive mix albums that made Sasha a global star. The British DJ has always been known for his magic touch behind the decks, ever since he began spinning records in the late â€˜80s. It is an intangible quality â€“ his extraordinary ability to light up dancefloors and entrance crowds â€“ that made Sasha the original superstar DJ.
Be ready. This Saturday is bringing you an equation: rippling electronic beats and an exalting experience. The sum: a promise for nothing less than musical bliss.
