Sasha was born in a small town in Wales, UK and his road to success has been a long one, it definitely was not overnight. He was exposed to the sounds of Motown records as a youngster and Sasha eventually developed musical skills, such as playing the piano / keyboards. At a club in Machester called Hacienda, Sasha was exposed to dance / house music for the first time. House music really moved him and impacted him so much that he moved from Wales to Manchester to explore Djing. He eventually volunteered in a local pub.

Sasha improved his skills on the decks, and was offered a residency at Stokes legendary night club called Shelly’s, that was his first big break into the dance club scene. The majority of DJ’s at the time was playing House music from the United States, however Sasha took a different route, playing his style of uplifting house tracks from Italy with piano and acapella tracks over top, it was this combination coupled with house music anthems the kept the dance floors always full and brought Sasha to DJ star status.

The club Shelly’s was a stepping stone for Sasha, his next residency was at club Renaissance, where Sasha developed his new style in UK house music. Sasha mixed the first ever UK DJ mix album and there he also met John Digweed which created the beginnings of a partnership called “Northern Exposure.” From that point on Sasha and John Digweed played all over the world, they have mixed 3 “Northern Exposure” albums that sold over a million copies worldwide.

John Digweed and Sasha forged a kinship, they were like brothers on the decks, and their status got them a monthly club residency at New York’s Twilo. It brought Sasha and Digweed to the status level of Vasquez and Tenaglia. Before Twilo closed in 2001, Sasha and Digweed’s residency reached cult status in New York.

Sasha is a superstar DJ that has brought the sounds of U.K dance music to the United States through his residency in New York.
