Sasha
Sasha
British DJ and producer.

Born: 4 September 1969 in Bangor, Gwynedd, Wales, UK.

A well-renowned DJ and production figure in trance and progressive house circles, Sasha became famous in the late 1980s and early 1990's for residencies at clubs like Shelley's (Longton, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, England), The Hacienda (Manchester, England), and most notably Renaissance ("Venue 44" in Mansfield, England; later "The Conservatory", Derby, England). At Renaissance, he formed a now famous longterm DJ partnership with John Digweed (as Sasha & John Digweed), one continued for many years, and they produced the first major commercially released studio-produced DJ mix "Renaissance: The Mix Collection" (1994) – now largely considered a pioneering release of its time.

In the early-to-mid 1990s, he produced several productions of his own and did remixes for Urban Soul, M People, Creative Thieves, and the Pet Shop Boys, amongst others. In 1999, he formed a new partnership in the studio with Charlie May (one half of Spooky) and released the "Xpander EP" (1999), and the full-length album "Airdrawndagger" (2002).

In 1997 he founded and ran the now defunct Excession label, later followed in 2007 by emFire, a new label for his own recordings. In late 2011 he launched his new digital imprint Last Night On Earth.
John Digweed
John Digweed
DJ & producer from Hastings, UK.

One of the most well-known DJ's in the world, famous for his tireless remix and production work, as well as his long-running association with fellow top-flight Sasha. Beginning DJ'ing in the early 1990's in the company of friends like Fabio and Grooverider, he began to champion the burgeoning progressive house sound, most notably with his residency at Renaissance with Sasha. His partnership with Nick Muir as Bedrock in the early 90's yielded the club hits "For What You Dream Of" and "Set In Stone", and the runaway popularity of his Bedrock Records record label was established with its first release, "Heaven Scent", in late 1999. John continues to remix and produce music while running the Bedrock Records label and a successful weekly radio show on KISS-100 FM in the UK.
