As internationally renowned DJ and producer, UK dance pioneer SASHA doesn’t need much ofan introduction -he’s been busy revamping genre expectations since the late 80s and became famousthrough a plethora of musical endeavours, from residencies at legendary clubs such as The Hacienda, Shelley’s and Renaissance to an era-defining DJ partnership with John Digweed in the 90s or his solo studio efforts that include remixes for The XX, Pet Shop Boys, Foals, GusGus, Madonna and countless other stars.
SASHA’s peerless command of dance floor sensibilities is on full display with OUT OF TIME, hisstunningdebut entryto the Kompakt catalogue: it’s a perfectly executed slice of prime time bliss, navigating emotional thrust andpropulsive beats with the effortless style that is a hallmark of true champions in the field. Refined with the stirring vocals of singer POLIÇA, the cut already shapes up to become a future favorite for ambitious playlists, serving sweaty clubbing realness with an opulent side of melodicsophistication. Dutch selector PATRICE BÄUMEL totally gets it and rearranges the track as a suitably stomping, minimalistic banger-whilekeeping tabs on the emotional source code that it first came with. Together with a simple, yet effective instrumental verison of the original, it’s an well-rounded package that will find its fans all across the electronic spectrum.
