His real name is Alexander Paul Coe and he is born on the 4th of September in 1969, in Bangor (Wales). He is a Welsh DJ and record producer.
His career began in the late 1980s with him playing acid house dance music and became a central figure in the development and popularisation of electronic dance music. He became partners with the following DJs John
Digweed in 1993, touring internationally and producing a series of mixes. Through their track selection and mixing techniques, Sasha and Digweed were instrumental in the evolution of progressive trance and house music. Sasha became aware of electronic dance music in 1988 at The Haienda, a Manchester dance venue.
Drawn to the rough sound of acid house music and the rebellious attitude he associated with it, he visited Manchester weekly and soon moved to nearby Disley. His music is influenced by the early sound of The Haienda, and Sasha began his career playing records of the rough, danceable genre of acid house. By the early 1990s, he had moved towards a more dark European house music style, though by the time of his Shelley’s residency he had begun to experiment more with American house.
Sasha has remixed tracks for artists such as Madonna and The Chemical Brothers. His remix of Felix da Housecat’s “Watching Cars Go By” earned him a 2004 Grammy nomination.
He is back with Digweed even though frequent performing kept them apart for several years, Sasha and Digweed announced that they would reunite for a few Australian performances. In 2008, Sasha and Digweed kicked off an American tour with a performance at the Winter Music Conference. The duo played at mainly larger venues on the weekends and smaller (750-1000 people) shows on weekdays
Sasha’s remixing and production often combine electronic music genres, making it difficult for critics to pinpoint his musical style, including on his debut album of original work, Airdrawndagger.
