Few DJs are as synonymous with their craft as Alexander Coe, aka Sasha. Throughout the '90s, Sasha and his partner, John Digweed, did more to legitimize the art of deejaying than perhaps any other performers. They sold untold thousands of records and CDs and opened up markets that hadn't previously been exposed to electronic music. Indeed, clubs where the duo played were widely seen as having "made it," whatever that means, and not much has changed since then. Sasha has remained one of dance music's biggest draws by riding the scene's cutting edge and often dictating which direction it will take next. Thanks in large part to his success, DJs now earn the respect and reverence once reserved for rock stars and rappers. Find out what makes Sasha both a tastemaker and a trailblazer when he kicks off his new residency at Vinyl on Friday, February 17.
