"Things i am already looking forward to in 2011....Coachella, Good Vibrations, relaunching my label with a load of my new tracks...."

Sven Vath AND Sasha??? Legends in the Sahara for 2011. Sasha completely warped my views and opinions on electronic music when I saw him. Less brotronica and more :::::::::SASHA:::::::::!


Live sets:

http://www.audiobeats.net/search?lang=en&q=sasha&qt=livesets

My personal favorite would be his live essential mix with Richie Hawtin playing afterwards. His most recent set at Glastonbury is also pretty great.

YES. S&D were fucking incredible at Ultra. Really upset I missed the Glasto set but that fest is out of control. Greg and tupper came back in such a Sasha daze

Most of my cum for Sasha comes from his ability to incorporate hauntingly beautiful and complex melodic progressions into his mixing. It isn't just BOOM BOOM BOOM DISTORTED GUITAR 1 2 3 WOOP WOOP bullshit.

This is a good question, all that he really said was that he's looking forward to Coachella. That could mean anything from he's just attending coachella to a S&D set, nobody knows for sure right now.

i highly doubt he is coming just to check out coachella... he's gotta be playin. seeing him at edc was beyond words, kept thinking how awesome it would be if he was at coachella this year :) this is amazing news

Leeartlee
01-03-2011, 12:57 PM
I haven't seen him play in a few years. I'd be down to see him in the desert this year. However, last set I saw him he was touring with deadmau5 as his opener. As deadmau5 was far from played out at that point, he kind of stole the show.

thewoodenman
01-03-2011, 12:59 PM
i thought that was kind of a weird pairing...his essential mixes are really good, but his fundacion NYC recording is quite possibly my favorite though.

Leeartlee
01-03-2011, 01:03 PM
Well considering everyone and their cousin were playing his tracks, it wasn't all that surprising. But yeah, the energy of the two sets were quite different, quite. I used to be the biggest Sasha fan, but over the years have drifted more towards the Balance series players (i.e. Desyn Masiello, Paolo Mojo, etc).

I should probably check out some recent sets to see whats in his bag of tricks.

djandrews25

I missed Digweed the other night but am really looking forward to this. His first Involver album was stunning. I still have fond memories of listening to it while tripped out on mushrooms at a friend's party on 4th of July '04.

i've only seen sasha with digweed twice before and wasn't blown away. maybe digweed blows (i know this to not be true, just saying, the panty creaming going on around here is a bit excessive at least from what i've seen) still would gladly take sasha over about 80% of what we is normally in the sahara. gonna hope for sahara magic to make it as mind-bending as hyped.

Sasha's most recent twitter: "Great week in the studio. Lots of writing.Unleashing the power of max for LIVE and Maschine.Going to have a couple of monsters ready for WMC"

I hope he drops some of those in SF this Friday.

Alright, I listened to this and thought the Hawtin section of the mix was the better part. Hopefully seeing Sasha live will make me change my mind, but out of the progressive house sets I own there are some I would put above Sasha's section of that Essential Mix.
