5 timeless tracks from Sasha that still give us Goosebumps
Sasha, do we even have words that do justice to his description? Fore runner of the progressive sounds, the “Son Of God” has been producing music for three decades and has stayed absolutely relevant and still is looked upto. The reason behind this if we may say so is because, The best DJ’s do know that DJing is more importantly about reading people and then be able to tap into that human experience and take it on a journey. And that is one thing that Sasha has managed to master. His Last Night On Earth label has become one of dance music’s most desirable destinations for the progressively-inclined side of house music fans. A Grammy nomination, four time IDMA award winner and DJ Mag featured speak well enough for themselves to describe how brilliant his work is.
The man of the hour plays in India at SulaFest in Nashik and Block 22 in Hyderabad this February. While we prep ourselves for what will be an experience of a lifetime, take a walk down memory lane as we list down 5 tracks from the legend that we are still ensorcelled by.
