Notes & Tracklist:
Make no mistake about it, the UK's DJ Sasha (real name: Alexander Coe) is the biggest star in a land where club DJs are often pop stars in their own right. Known not only for his distinct trance sounds in his DJ sets, but also his productions and remixes which have essentially pioneered the scene known today as Epic House, led by such artists as B.T. (whose talent he 'discovered'), Blue Amazon, Paul Van Dyke as well as his own records, such as "Be As One" a tune which crashed the top 10 upon release last year and has even won kudos from several major radio staions over here as well.

In addition to the long hours in the studio as well as global travels with his best friend, the two have also recently become the first ever UK DJs to take up a monthly residency in a New York club, spinning the last Friday of every month at Twilo, the former Sound Factory space. DJ Times caught up with Sasha one day at B.T.'s house as they were fiddling around in the studio looking to make more musical history.

As might be expected for someone of his vintage, to start with Coe wasn’t a big fan of the impact of the internet on music. He’s since come to embrace social networking.

“I understand it now. Some people do genuinely have something interesting to say in 140 characters. And it’s a great way to find out about music.”

The problem for DJs is that the internet also means that everyone has access to everything. There are no secrets any more. “It used to be part of the magic, but you can’t keep records to yourself now. You have to work a lot harder,” he admits.

He sees that as a positive, and talks about how more DJs make re-edits of tracks these days, as he is doing on ‘Invol<3r’. It makes him think about every gig more. “You’re under a lot of pressure to deliver a new set every time,” he says. “Especially because people post sets online. It’s shocking. I’ll play a set with loads of exclusive music and the next day someone’s posted the tracklisting online and they’ve got ninety per cent of it right. How the fuck do they know? Have they got my phone bugged?”
