Sasha at Sankeys

Head to the dance basement this weekend for a house party to remember

Published on September 16th 2010.

Sasha at Sankeys

Over the years, other superstar DJs have come and gone, fresher faces have surfaced and progressive house has risen and fallen, but Sasha and his never ending innovation remains at the forefront of the scene.

After recent spectacular shows worldwide including London’s Mater, Saturday 12 June sees the Sasha return to rock Manchester’s finest in Sankeys dark basement from 10.30pm till 6am.

Upstairs in Spektrum, Kaluki welcomes a collection of some of the most in demand producers on the underground scene. Straight out of Mannheim Germany, Oslo records has proven to be one of this year’s premier new taste-making labels and is home to names like Johnny D, Guillame & The Coutu Dumonts and Nekes, who are all equally responsible for some of this year’s tastiest underground music.

As a key imprint leading the current underground love for deep electronic house the Oslo label tour hits Sankeys with Frederico Mollinari, Sascha Dive and Damian Schwartz.

Standard tickets cost £12. Get yours from www.sankeys.info

Judging by the picture Sasha is turning in Marc Riley. If only his record collection would do the same. Arf...

I saw Sasha at a very busy Sankeys, about two years ago. So post-refurb, but not the (actually very good) finished product that is now Sankeys.

That's largely irrelevant though unless you know what Sankeys could be like when it was rammed, but thankfully it's sorted now.

The point? Well, the sweltering heat and constant crush could not detract from one simple fact: Sasha was amazing. Having seen Digweed not long before (again at Sankeys) and leaving due to extreme boredom, I wasn't expecting much from his former partner-in-crime. Man was I wrong.

Sasha tore the place apart with beautiful, seemless builds. As the night wore on, the sound got harder and harder whilst all the time being entirely accessible. It was a lesson in DJing, a lesson in crowd reading and pleasing. The sheer class of the guy was unmistakable. On a par with giants such as Garnier and Kevorkian.

I really, really can't recommend Sasha@Sankeys enough. And no, I don't work there or have any vested interested. My faith in Sankeys was restored late last year with Dave Clarke hammering out a sublime set for Colour@Sankeys. This night has "epic" writ large all over it. Enjoy.

3--2-1 and ur back in the room you're right he looks like Derren Brown. Maybe he is and he's hypnotised us into thinking that he's a DJ.
