A longstanding figure in progressive house has whet his fans appetites for an upcoming release. Sasha A.K.A. Alexander Paul Coe will make his debut on Watergate Records with an EP titled GameOvr, but in the meantime the UK DJ and producer has offered up the Cassy remix of the title track.
Characterized by a decidedly harder manifestation of the Sasha sound, Cassy’s remix of “GameOvr” hinges around primal kick drums and a discordant synth melody echoing throughout the arrangement. Swedish DJ and producer La Fleur has been assigned remixing duties for the other single of the EP. Titled “Trigonometry,” it bears more of the melodic hallmarks typical to Coe’s discography.
The Son of God
As progressive house came to pervade the UK electronic music scene in the ’90s, Sasha was among the emerging genre’s poster children. Together with DJ and producer John Digweed, he quickly made a name for himself as the two performed legendary back-to-back sets at London’s renowned monthly series Renaissance.
After parting ways in 2010, Sasha and Digweed reunited behind the decks last year unexpectedly during the latter artist’s set at Easter Bedrock 2016. They played another back-to-back set at The Social Festival the same year but have resumed their solo careers otherwise.
Sasha’s GameOvr will come out on Watergate Records August 21st.
