"The acid house boom in the late 1980’s packed the hard-beaten clubs, which had suffered a big loss of crowd and vibe since “disco died” in the early 80’s. It was a time before the Internet. In order to catch up with the latest trends you had to go out every weekend and follow the international press closely.
In early 1990’s, one could notice more and more articles on the UK press praising a young DJ on his way to super-stardom, a DJ, whose sets packed a club called Shelley’s week after week. As the word spread around, pilgrims started to wander to Stoke-on-Trent every weekend from all the UK. A star named Sasha was born.
For a person not living in the UK, the next encounter with Sasha was via a DiscoMixClub / MixMag presented mix-tape, which allowed one to witness – through a hissing and humming c-cassette - not only faultless beatmatching in master class, but also an interesting selection of music combining Italo House with melodic tracks with euphoric undertones – which was something not too common during that time and era. It was music that some years later become to be known as trance and progressive house – the very basis of modern club sound alongside house.
A couple of years later Sasha left Shelley’s and teamed up with another talented lad, John Digweed as the resident DJ’s for Renaissance. In 1993, they released the world’s first ever DJ-mixed compilation, ‘Renaissance The Mix Collection’, which still almost 20 years after its initial release is regarded by many as the best DJ album ever made. Everything Sasha touched turned into gold.
All pieces fell into place in September 2003 on a dark Thrusday night at Hesperia Night Club in Helsinki. A night that anybody involved in any way in the Finnish club scene couldn’t afford to miss. For the first time, Alexander “Sasha” Coe put his feet (and mark) on the Finnish. More than a 10 years wait became a reality and the Experience, probably the best word to describe that night out, was living up to ones expectation – an ordinary looking guy behind the mixing desk, deceptively looking inattentive to what is passing, yet very much aware of the crowd, its moods and that exact moment. No hired dancers jumping up and down on the stage, no loud pyrotechnics or fancy effects. Only the Man and his Music – just the way it should be."
