Welsh superstar DJ and producer Sasha (Alexander Paul Coe) has been influencing global club scene for over two decades through original productions, remixes and DJ sets that consistently display his deep understanding of modern dance music. His residencies at Twilo, NYC and in Ibiza with partner John Digweed set standards for modern clubbing while his mix CDs for the well-known Global Underground series made Sasha a household name. Sasha’s Involver series of mixes see the DJ curating a list of tracks, dissecting them into loops and layers of sound and reassembling them into unique DJ mixes. Involver 3 will be released on March 18 and features unique remixes of James Zabeila, Little Dragon, The Ananda Project, Blondes, and The XX.
From Wikipedia: Sasha (born Alexander Paul Coe on 4 September 1969 in Bangor, Caernarfonshire, Wales) is a Welsh DJ and record producer. Sasha began his career playing acid house dance music in the late 1980s. He partnered with fellow DJ John Digweed in 1993, touring internationally and producing a series of mixes together. Sasha has produced multiple UK-charting singles and has remixed tracks for artists such as Madonna, The Chemical Brothers and Hot Chip. His remix of Felix da Housecat’s “Watching Cars Go By” earned him a 2004 Grammy nomination. Sasha’s remixing and production often combine electronic music genres, making it difficult for critics to pinpoint his musical style, including on his debut album of original work, Airdrawndagger.
After achieving success as a producer and DJ, Sasha has worked with younger DJs and producers such as BT and James Zabiela, influencing their musical styles and techniques. His use of live audio engineering equipment helped popularize technological innovations among DJs who formerly relied on records and turntables. Despite the changing trends in electronic dance music, Sasha continues to perform in large dance venues.
