Enjoyed Sasha on Friday.

Didn't play for long enough but nailed it regardless.

When he's on top form you can give him 90 minutes and he'll destroy the place. I wonder if limiting him to a couple of hours booking would help nudge some of the tedious minimal stuff out the door in favour of more thrusting peak-time offerings. Just saying.

You should be limited in the amount of posts per day. Speaking of tedious stuff.

You should be limited in the amount of breaths you take per day. About three should do the trick.

It was Thermalbear, and you're right he was pretty shit.

Sasha was indeed gooder but you did feel shortchanged by the short set.  Not his fault but kinda poor from Mixmag - you;d expect the headline act (that you;ve essentially paid £22 for) to be on longer than that.

Did think Simon Baker (before) Sasha was spot on

Guess who's back .......... 'Odgy's back

Believe Thermalbear played warm up, then Robert James (also on after Sasha).
Agreed Simon Baker played some good stuff.

Re: Sasha on Digweed - new Mixmag interview

Baker and the bear were spot on. Sasha's set is for all to judge. In my humble opinion; brilliant. Feel a little short changed as well. Not help by "whoever" done the last clear out set.
Overall great night and crowd.
No whining. No bad mouthing. Honest review.

My bad & sorry to Thermalbear - whoever was last was shite

Re: Sasha on Digweed - new Mixmag interview

That Henry Sainz Feat Eloy `It`s Not Over  off the mix is brilliant.

ah, now that sasha's played it it's safe.

Come on don't be like that, Zack. get off that thoroughbred. I think even if Dave Pearce played this track it would have been safe.

Definitely be listening to Sasha's mix for Mixmag again - Dominik Eulberg is on fire - Opel Tantra and more recently 'The space between us' two of my fave tracks of the year. Heard him play Opel Tantra out and it just rips through the place on a good system..

The future ain't what it used to be.

I finally listened to this today and from your comments I have surmised one of two things or maybe both.

1. You didn't go. (most likely)
2. If you did you have absolutely no idea or taste in music.

This is without doubt hands down the worst set I think I have ever heard from Sasha. Some of the music in there is for children and virtually un-listenable.

Watching you.

Re: Sasha on Digweed - new Mixmag interview

Time flies but I only last saw Sasha and Digweed play together December 09 at the Warehouse Project.  Digweed warmed it up nicely with some solid tech-house, Sasha came on and should, by rights have stolen the show, despite only playing for around 45mins... he played an invigorating and original set of melodic music, light on rhythm but special as hell.  But Digweed came back on and ramped things back up with a brilliant selection of no-holds-barred techno, and deserved all the accolades.  After all, given they were billed for around 6 hours, and John played in excess of 5 of those, he probably deserved the props regardless of Sasha's superb cameo.

Still, I've seen both DJs countless times since and they both still have the power to amaze.  I understand they've drifted apart musically, but that, somehow, makes the idea of a "proper" back to back set (e.g. in their case swapping half hours all evening) all the more enticing.  It's sad if this article (which I've not read, to be fair) suggests we'll not hear that again.  Still, we've got some brilliant memories over the years, and at least we still have their individual talents to enjoy.
