Grammy Award nominee, four times International Dance Music Award winner, four times DJ Mag Award winner, frequent cover star, acclaimed live artist, SASHA is a man who needs no introduction. His already prosperous career is burgeoning exponentially, as is the range of his achievements: mixing fabric 99; tracks released on Kompakt and Watergate; his superb Scene Delete compilation (Late Night Tales); record sell-out REFRACTED live shows; legendary All Night Long sets, world tours and sold out label showcases. The ultimate timeless artist, Sasha is still enlisting new fans worldwide and appealing to each coming generation.
Since 2011, he’s carved out a new path for his celebrated Last Night On Earth imprint. An essential hub for fresh, inspiring talent and revered, long-established figures, original works have come from Hot Chip, dubspeeka, Ejeca, Maribou State, BAILE, Timanti, La Fleur and Dart, with stand-out remixes coming from Radio Slave, Nicole Moudaber and Brame & Hamo, and in 2020 Sasha collaborated with and invited Artche, Polymod and Franky Wah to make their debuts on the label. Celebrating its tenth anniversary this year and approaching 150 releases, stellar releases are incoming from Qrion, Spencer Brown and Third Son, as well as a very special release toward the end of the year.
Label showcases have further propelled LNOE’s sound global-wide, from fabric’s dancefloor to Berlin’s Watergate, Mexican festival Esto Es Tulum and Amsterdam’s ADE. A collaboration with sustainable fashion marketplace Everpress saw LNOE expand with a limited-edition clothing line, with all pieces being made from 100% organic cotton and waste-free.
In Sasha’s REFRACTED:LIVE shows, he performed live, accompanied by strings, live vocals and guest musicians. Material included his Scene Delete album and seminal tracks from his back catalogue re-imagined as an original score, alongside new material composed with the live setting in mind. An overwhelming response to his debut shows at London’s Barbican led to more dates, with the reception being phenomenal.
What’s more, his fervor for connecting with crowds globalwide has him launching residencies across Ibiza’s hallowed dancefloors from Space to Ushuaïa, Ushuaïa Tower, and most recently leading Privilege’s revival with the RESISTANCE events, as well as engaging huge crowds at festivals Glastonbury, Coachella, Electric Daisy Carnival, The BPM Festival, Sziget, Loveland, Ultra Music and many more.
Coming into 2021 energised for the year ahead, Sasha is excited to release new material, including tracks that come as part of LUZoSCURA, a compilation project that’s set to signal the next phase of his storied career. Evolved from the eponymous playlist, the adventurous compilation offers electronica, ambient, techno and breaks from newly-discovered emerging talent, as well as eminent artists. LUZoSCURA began on Spotify, with the playlist featuring music sent to Sasha which didn’t meet the pace of his club sets nor suit LNOE.
