The new Sasha: Focused, refined, cinematic, and awe inspiring

IcarasX,

This album is a simply stunning, provocatively melodic, minimalist in design, and tightly streamlined with a running time of only an hour and 15 minutes in the continuous mix. I used to think Sasha had a somewhat of a tendency to linger on sections for a bit too long, and especially in ambient tracks where it's easy to get lost in prolonged tracks, but he wastes no time here in this mix getting his cues communicated across to the listener and he effortlessly entices and delights with enough progressive technique and interesting sound design that keeps your ears perked up every few bars. It's perfectly paced and adequately timed.

Take his previous continuous ambient mix of his EmFire studio album and polish it in every way, with solid direction, and with a stronger cinematic feel. At around the 30 minute mark, the mix turns into an almost Vangelis soundscape. It's beautiful and perfection.

I can't wait to hear more works like this from Sasha in the future. A radically fresh diversion from his usual club dance music that succeeds on so many levels.

Glorious!!

junfangungfu,

This album sounds like a fine meal tastes or how it feels to view a very fine work of art. How it feels to put on a beautifully crafted bespoke suit. Like Sasha’s more typical electronica excursions, the music here is beautifully conceived and masterfully executed, infused with a sensibility that can be developed only over decades of performing and composing music at a consistently high level of skill and relevance. It is thoughtfully textured so as to always seek an emotional connection with the listener and, in the best radiation’s of electronica, it reflects a deep love of music and technology — indeed, most fundamentally, of sound.

About Sasha

North Wales native Sasha became one of the world's most renowned and popular DJs, known for populist fusions of house, techno, and trance. Starting out in the late '80s as a club DJ, the former Alexander Coe got his first big break when he was hired by the dance club Shelly's to spin and rework popular sounds of the day. It was there that the young DJ found fame with the dance and house crowd, but it wasn't until he started laying down his grooves at the Haçienda and Renaissance that he become known nationally and, eventually, globally.

It was while still at Renaissance that Sasha met another DJ, John Digweed. The two became a remixing team and soon released the first volume of Northern Exposure, a series of mix albums that also functioned as a collection of the duo's remixes for other producers. The duo toured behind the release, visiting the U.S., Australia, South Africa, and Southeast Asia. Sasha refused to limit himself to DJ work, however; he collaborated with singer Maria Naylor on the Top 20 U.K. pop hit "Be as One," and remixed tracks from such popular artists as the Pet Shop Boys, Simply Red, and M People. He also formed his own record company, Excession Recordings, and wrote originals for Deconstruction.

In late 1997, another Sasha + John Digweed compilation appeared, Northern Exposure, Vol. 2, available in both East Coast and West Coast versions (each contained completely different songs). He released several mix albums on his own, as well, including multiple volumes in the Global Underground series (San Francisco and Ibiza). A rare production release, the Xpander EP, became a dancefloor hit in 1999. The mix album Communicate followed a year later, and in 2002, he scored an American record deal with Kinetic and released his first production full-length, Airdrawndagger. His next major record project, Involver, was a fusion of mix album and production record, consisting of his own exclusive remixes of tracks from UNKLE and Ulrich Schnauss, among others. Another inclusion, Felix da Housecat's "Watching Cars Go By," was nominated for a Grammy in the category of Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical. Subsequent volumes Invol2ver and Invol<3r were issued in 2008 and 2013. A creative departure titled Scene Delete, a flowing sequence of ambient productions, was released through LateNightTales in 2016. A remix EP, Scene Delete: Remixes #3, dropped the following year. ~ Greg Prato
