Away from the smoke and sweat of the clubs, Sasha explores a more introspective side to his music in a special performance of his Late Night Tales release Scene Delete – an album that filters contemporary classical influences through the lens of House and Techno, as well as reinterpretations of music from his back catalogue.

Like the best of his DJ sets, Scene Delete is a journey. With Sasha joined on stage by a small chamber ensemble, the album unfolds as one brooding, undulating piece that flows from start to finish, sounding somewhere between the dark, weightless soundscapes of Burial and the music modern composers like Nils Frahm, akin to fellow Late Night Tales artists Jon Hopkins and Bonobo.

Further indulging his eclectic taste in music, the second half of the concert sees Sasha perform new interpretations of tracks from across his career. Keeping the essence of what made those songs so distinct while twisting them into new shapes, the new arrangements and live instruments add new harmonic layers and depth to tracks, dialling into the emotional core that’s always been at the heart of his music but with an even greater focus on texture and atmosphere. Demonstrating his progressive approach to his craft, these new interpretations bring his back catalogue in line with latest evolution of his sound.
