ABOUT SASHA CARASSI — Hailing from Naples, DJ and producer Sasha Carassi has taken over the electronic music landscape with his eclectic signature style. Beginning his musical journey during the early years of the 90s at age 15 as a resident DJ at Dinamik, the most famous club in his area, Carassi began finding influence in the sounds of house music and breakbeat. Venturing into the world of production, he released his first album in 2002, followed by a slew of well-received singles that cemented his reputation as a producer. In 2009 Carassi reached a milestone with the founding of his highly-respected imprint, Phobiq, helping discover many talents in techno music. Marking a massive year for the talent, 2010 saw multiple releases on a host of big labels including the mighty Drumcode and Bedrock, seeing him make his presence known in the darker, big-room oriented side of electronic music. Showcasing his change of musical direction, his 2019 album “Picture”, released on Solomun’s Dynamic, saw Carassi bring to life his love of visceral and atmospheric trademark touches. Breaking away from Phobiq, Carassi has recently launched new label ILINX, reflecting his current views on music and boasting a wide range of records.
Proving his talent as a leader in electronic music, the latest EP from Sasha Carassi cements the pioneer as one to watch throughout the new year. Transporting listeners with an ethereal soundscape, Carassi continues to expand upon his already successful arsenal of releases.
