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.
