A well-renowned DJ and production figure in trance and progressive house circles, Sasha became famous in the late 1980s and early 1990's for residencies at clubs like Shelley's (Longton, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, England), The Hacienda (Manchester, England), and most notably Renaissance ("Venue 44" in Mansfield, England; later "The Conservatory", Derby, England). At Renaissance, he formed a now famous longterm DJ partnership with John Digweed (as Sasha & John Digweed), one continued for many years, and they produced the first major commercially released studio-produced DJ mix "Renaissance: The Mix Collection" (1994) – now largely considered a pioneering release of its time.
In the early-to-mid 1990s, he produced several productions of his own and did remixes for Urban Soul, M People, Creative Thieves, and the Pet Shop Boys, amongst others. In 1999, he formed a new partnership in the studio with Charlie May (one half of Spooky) and released the "Xpander EP" (1999), and the full-length album "Airdrawndagger" (2002).
In 1997 he founded and ran the now defunct Excession label, later followed in 2007 by emFire, a new label for his own recordings. In late 2011 he launched his new digital imprint Last Night On Earth.
