His frequent partner, John Digweed, may get more attention, but true beatheads know that DJ Sasha is no coat-stringer. And now that his long-awaited album, airdrawndagger (BMG), has been released, the rest of the world can catch the buzz about this powerhouse spinner. Sets full of nasty rhythms and emotive mixes have moved Sasha to the center of the dance-world stage, and the new CD transcends typical techno by using chimes, string ensembles and lush, rolling melodies. DJ Sasha presides at the Church on Thursday, October 10, as part of his worldwide tour to promote airdrawndagger. Just be careful: This dagger is sharp.
