SASHA ANNOUNCES HIS LATE NIGHT TALES RELEASE AND SHARES NEW MUSIC WITH ‘VIEW 2’

Sasha explores a different side of his musical vision with a new release on Late Night Tales

Acclaimed DJ and producer Sasha has revealed plans for Scene Delete, an immersive 21-track mix filled entirely of original productions. The collection includes a recent collaboration with Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich’s band Ultraista along with a few favorites and a many surprises.

The mix will be released in various formats including 3xLP, CD and deluxe box set on April 1 via Late Night Tales. You can listen to ‘View 2’ below, ahead of the official release.

Sasha discusses his vision for the mix and how it came together:

I love post-minimalist modern classical, I love to listen to something completely different that’ s quite hypnotic as well. It almost… purges the system.

About three years ago, my collaborators David Gardner and ThermalBear and I wrote a song called “Bring On The Night.” I sent it to Ultraista and within a few days she sent it back with this amazing vocal on, with Nigel Godrich playing keyboards. We tried to do club mixes but we just couldn’ t get it right. So it sat there doing nothing.

Tracks like this kept building up, until finally last summer my frustration boiled over. We’ d made so many tunes that I couldn’t remember the names of half of them: What was that thing with a bass sound and a string line? It drove me mental. At the same time as we were logging these tracks, I was listening to the Jon Hopkins’ Late Night Tales and I thought a lot of the music we’d been working on was in the same vibe. So I sent the music over to Late Night Tales and they really liked it.

Initially, I thought we’d just do a Late Night Tales compilation with maybe a few pieces of my own music. But as we went through everything we’ d worked on in the last two years, we realised we had about 50 pieces of music. So we started editing and compiling: Scene Delete is the end result.
