The legendary dance producer dabbles in ambient and downtempo on the new 21-track offering.
Sasha has made a career out of crafting timeless club music, but now he’s taking a step in a lighter direction. The Welsh producer has announced a new downtempo album on critically-acclaimed compilation series Late Night Tales. Scene Delete, as the album is known, will contain 21 new original creations from Sasha in a style that he refers to as “unabashedly ambient.”
It’s a definitive move for one of the reigning kings of progressive house, but one befitting of his creative process. “Whenever I’m in the studio and I’ve been working on techno or club music,” he says, “I immediately want to work on something more textural and ambient.” Over the years, he’s amassed countless of these left-field creations. It reached a boiling point last summer when he felt something needed to be done with all the material. “It just kept piling up,” he says. “I was thinking about releasing an album that had all my club records and my ambient stuff on it but it didn’t seem like it would fit together.”
