If there are boundaries yet to be broken, you can bet that Sasha has got them in the crosshairs. Heâ€™s been battering them down since Shelleyâ€™s, The Hacienda, Renaissance and Twilo; from Airdrawndagger to Invol3r. Since 2011, heâ€™s carved a new way with his increasingly pivotal â€˜LastNight On Earthâ€™ imprint, the label that has been introduced with forward-thinking producers like My Favourite Robotâ€™s James Teej, Simon Baker, ThermalBear, Ejeca, Ghosting Season, Max Cooper, and Knox.
In 2013, there was the arrival of the long-awaited third album in his â€˜Involverâ€™ series, the intricate and challenging â€˜Involv3râ€™. It combined on one disc Sashaâ€™s peerless command of dance floor sensibilities, and on the other, his skilful exploration of beat-less soundscapes, featuring his interpretations of tracks from The xx, Blondes, Little Dragon, Benjamin Damage, Foals and ThermalBear. It also featured â€˜Shoot You Downâ€™, 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 â€˜Last Night on Earthâ€™ parties around the globe, Sasha has brought nothing but the finest line-ups to clubbers around the world. This 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 â€˜Last Night on Earthâ€™ at SW4 in the capital earlier this year.
It doesnâ€™t stop here though. 2015 will see Sasha taking things to another level on and off the dance floor. Expect big things from his parties around the globe, which he is running alongside his imprint label. Sasha says it best; â€œwe have some really exciting things planned for 2015, some great releases, and I will be collaborating with some of the very talented artists we have championed.â€�
