Sasha to play rare intimate show as he debuts at San Francisco’s Vessel for BASE’s 7th Anniversary Celebrations

24 May 2012 - - The DJ List


The name SASHA has been synonymous with underground electronic music for over twenty years. Beginning at England’s seminal house music club; Manchester’s Hacienda, to selling out legendary club nights such as Renaissance, Cream and closer to home NYC’s Twilo, Sasha has built a name as one of the best DJ’s in the industry. Fast forward to 2012 and his presence is still firmly rooted at the forefront of forward thinking house music, headlining some of the best music venues in the world including Berlin’s Panorama bar and London's Fabric. He's an artist that's done it all, from being crowned #1 in the DJ Mag top 100 poll, being responsible for the biggest selling mix album of all time and headlining countless festivals and global music events.

Sasha is a DJ that breaks boundaries, taking his performances to the next level and setting new technical standards. From building The Maven, his pioneering midi controller many years ago, being the first to introduce Ableton into his sets, to his awe inspiring V_rtek shows - the notorious live LED reactionary festival show and his famed marathon sets at clubs across the world; Stereo in Montreal, The Chinese Laundry in Sydney, Ministry of Sound London to Womb Tokyo, have given him one of the strongest global names in electronic music. After years of selling out some of the biggest parties in Ibiza, in 2010 he took up residency at the beach-front bar Ushuaia, bucking the trend of playing in a generic superclub. After a year of fantastic bookings and glowing reviews, Ushuaia has now moved to be arguably the hottest space on the Island, a mammoth open air stage under the stars. Which has played witness to him performing alongside hand-picked contemporaries such as JAMIE JONES, DAMIAN LAZARUS, JULIO BASHMORE, GUY GERBER and SETH TROXLER to name a few...

On Thursday June 7th, we're incredibly honoured to welcome him to the intimate settings of Vessel, for what will be a very special occasion...
