    Default Sasha & John Digweed

    I couldn't find a thread on these guys, so I wanted to start one up just to see if anybody has had some recent experience with either one of them. They were both major influences for me in the 1990's when I was really into trance. Sasha's Xpander was a great track. I always felt like Sasha was a good producer, while Digweed was the better DJ.

    I managed to catch Sasha at Voyer here in San Diego several years ago, and he played a very deep, dark set. It was pretty heavy. Haven't seen or heard from these two since.

    Anybody seem either one of them lately? Do you think they are going to be in the Sahara....or maybe the Yuma?
    How many headlines can you make out of the 2016 lineup? i.e. "Young monsters moon strangers for pure horror."

    I really hope Digweed gets a closing spot in the Yuma tbh.

    I saw them together in 2008 a week before Coachella, and it was really good. I also saw Digweed solo in 2007, and just thought it was ok. I hope they end up playing together at some point during the weekend.

    I think Yuma. Then again, Sasha played Sahara as recently as 2011 and it was a prime, night time slot. He's billed way lower, though. I think the only way they get into Sahara again is if one of the Top 40 EDM acts is playing elsewhere and they need an electronic act that would cater to a different audience to play the tent at the same time.

    If you can only see one, definitely choose Sasha.

    I'm also putting my prayers towards them joining each other at some point . . . 'cause that'd be cool.

    It's really too bad these guys are both on the poster playing separately. Their 2008 show in the Sahara was Fantastic. Cool visuals too. Man, 2008 was such a great year

    I'm not sure I would call a 1 hr 15 min set prime.

    Like night time. It was a very good set, I wasn't a Sasha fan before that.

    I saw them both at BPM Festival this month and they were both good but I enjoyed Sasha more. I would bet on them both playing the Yuma...

    Saturday at the Despacio Sasha & Digweed set would be a brilliant surprise.

    Oh, for sure....I'd bet that nobody else in the lineup has a better collection of vinyl that these two.

    Except that's not at all how DESPACIO works and if a Sasha & Digweed reunion was happening, which would be a costly affair, it would be billed and premiered on the poster at the festival. I can't believe there's been this many moronic "I hope this happens" posts about this.

    Prime as in arguably the most coveted Sahara set of that day. Second to last, especially since the last set (Boys Noize) went against Chemical Brothers on the main. Night time marquee slot, everybody peaking, no other electronic conflict to draw away the Sahara audience.

    Ha.....I get that this is not going to happen. It's just called "wishful thinking."

    "Oh, hey there OTHER DJ, do you want to play some of your records on my million dollar system? Check it out, I got the crowd going for you and I CANT WAIT to get off the decks so that they can experience YOUR glorious record playing." - said no superstar egomaniac DJ, EVER.

    I'm sorry guedita but I'm going to have to rub it in your face if it actually does happen! :P

    Oops I mixed up this thread with another one I was reading on TA forums at the same time. Some guy was saying that he is no longer relevant.

    I did not catch Eelke Kleijn unfortunately, I was sleeping after Marco Carolas Music On the night before. I will give it a listen to though, thank you.

    Edit - Yes, Eelke Kleijns set WAS dope! I missed out.

    So they are going to play 12 hrs a day for 3 days straight even though they all have other commitments to attended to?

    No, honey, they're going to play six hours each day for three days straight. Just as they have at every Euro festival which booked Despacio.

    Probably something like:

    Friday: Noon - 6pm
    Saturday: 6:30pm - 12:30am
    Sunday: 6:00pm - 12:00am
