Sasha - Profile
Legendary DJ/Producer SASHA is recognised 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 that blur the boundaries between artist and DJ. Taking over with his Last Night on Earth parties around the globe, Sasha has brought nothing but the finest sets to clubbers around the world with his unique blend of electronic music genres for over three decades.
If there are boundaries yet to be broken, then you can bet that Sasha has got them in the crosshairs. He’s been battering them down since Shelley’s, The Hacienda, Renaissance and Twilo; from Airdrawndagger to Involver. Since 2011, he’s carved a new way with his increasingly pivotal Last Night On Earth imprint, the label that has introduced into its family fiercely forward-thinking producers like My Favourite Robot’s James Teej, Simon Baker, ThermalBear, Ejeca, Ghosting Season, Max Cooper and Knox.
Then there was the arrival of the long-awaited third album in his ‘Involver’ series in 2013, the intricate and challenging ‘Involv3r’. It combined on one disc Sasha’s peerless command of dance floor sensibilities and on the other his skilful exploration of beatless soundscapes, featuring his exclusive interpretations of tracks from The xx, Blondes, Little Dragon, Benjamin Damage, Foals and ThermalBear. It also featured ‘Shoot You Down’, his own spine-chilling anthem with vocals from the beguiling Swedish chanteuse Kicki Halmos.
Boundaries out of the studio have been equally unsafe. Taking over with his Last Night on Earth parties around the globe, Sasha has brought nothing but the finest line-ups to clubbers around the world. Last summer he hit the world-renowned Space Ibiza with a monthly LNOE residency, which showcased the likes of Scuba, Catz & Dogz, Heidi, Magda and of course Sasha himself. He also hosted his first festival arena with Last Night on Earth at SW4 in the capital last year.
