DJ/producer/remixer SASHA is recognized as one of the worlds' most innovative icons of the electronic genre. He propels listeners into the future of electronic music by constructing innovative and forward-thinking concept albums (Airdrawndagger, Involver) and live events (Delta Heavy, Fundacion) that blur the boundaries between artist and DJ. In dance music circles, Sasha's name conjures near mythological references and fond memories of unforgettable gigs at destinations around the world. What punctuates Sasha's skills as a DJ is his capacity to not only incorporate diverse genres and styles, but to transcend them by infusing his music with pure emotion. Sasha's talent is matched only by his passion, which has seen him become one of the world's true superstar DJs.
Starting out as a club DJ during the late 80s, Sasha eventually landed a residency at Shelly's in Stokes, where he began developing and honing his techniques and cultivating his emotive style, winning him a devoted following. After Shelly's, he started playing the Renaissance nights in Mansfield. Thanks to Sasha, the nights eventually blew up and further bolstered his reputation as one of the world's premier DJs. Right around this time, Sasha met John Digweed. Solidifying their reputations for stellar play with several successful stateside tours, Sasha and John were eventually invited to share a monthly residency at New York City's Twilo in 1996. All-night sessions before crowds of up to 2,000 people, Sasha and John's sets weren't just awe-inspiring, but saw them and Twilo become the focal point for America's burgeoning DJ and club culture.
Over the years, Sasha hasn't simply been playing great music, he's been making it, too. In addition to production credits on labels like Deconstruction, Yoshitoshi and his own Excession imprint, Sasha has provided remixes for top names like the Chemical Brothers and Madonna. In 1999, he released the critically acclaimed Xpander EP, which continues to be a mainstay in DJ record boxes around the world. Refusing to limit himself to DJ work, Sasha has continually explored his various interests as an adept remixer, songwriter, and producer. He established himself as a formidable, in-demand remixer by reconstructing tracks from an incredible array of artists such as Depeche Mode, Madonna, Seal, UNKLE, The Chemical Brothers, BT, Thom Yorke, and Orbital.
Along with a never ending tour schedule, 2008 finds Sasha once again busy in the studio releasing four original singles on his brand new label, 'emFire', scoring the soundtrack for the surf film New Emissions of Light And Sound that went on to win the Best Soundtrack Award at 2008's X-Dance awards, and completing Invol2ver, the follow up to his Grammy nominated album Involver. Invol2ver's worldwide release on 8 September will once again see exclusive Sasha remixes of such renowned artists like Thom Yorke of Radiohead, Ladytron, Apparat and M83 along with new original Sasha tracks featuring Ray LaMontagne and Adam Parker
