Sasha Plans Live DJ Mixes


On-site concert recording and distribution provider Instant Live has teamed with British electronic DJ/producer Sasha to release a completely live, legally sanctioned DJ mix. The two-hour-plus, two-disc set will be recorded June 24 during Sasha's Fundacion residency closing party at the Avalon club in Los Angeles. Upon exiting the venue that night, dance/electronic enthusiasts can purchase the CD and take it home with them.

This partnership marks the first time that Instant Live will work with an electronic artist. Instant Live has recently worked with the Allman Brothers, the Cult, the Dears and others.

Also of note, clubgoers that have experienced one of Sasha's Fundacion residencies in the past two years know that the DJ prides himself on merging rock sounds with contemporary dance/electronic beats to create on-the-spot remixes (mash-ups, if you will). Because of this, according to a statement, Instant Live will pre-license all the music in Sasha's record/CD crates, so that every artist, songwriter and label is properly compensated.

The gear-savvy Sasha calls Instant Live "an amazing advancement in the use of technology." He adds that the dance culture, like it or not, was built on bootlegs and now downloads. "Instant Live allows me to put my sets directly into the hands of the fans while supporting the music makers…This music has always been about immediacy." With this, "it really is here and now."

Instant Live GM Stephen Prendergast echoes this sentiment, adding, "At Live Nation/Instant Live, our intent is to develop a legitimate business model for DJs, labels, publishers and the creative people who derive a living in the club and dance world."


The limited edition Sasha/Instant Live collection (10,000 individually numbered two-disc sets) can also be pre-ordered through instantlive.com and djsasha.com. Remaining sets will be distributed, by Ryko, to brick and mortar retailers in mid-July.

Sasha's June 24 Fundacion event at Avalon in Los Angeles brings his two-year-old, multi-city residency to a close. Fundacion's "closing party" in Los Angeles will be preceded by Fundacion "last calls" in New York (June 9 at Crobar), Wash., D.C. (June 10 at Glow at Fur), and Denver (June 23 at Vinyl). Artist/label guru James Lavelle will be Sasha's special guest on all four dates, while DJ/producer Satoshi Tomiie joins the lineup in New York.

i dont know much about licensing and things of that nature BUT
can they really license all of the unsigned / unreleased music he has?

if not then that would kinda suck as the only music being put on the cd would be older / released / licensed stuff ... no?

It sounds to me like the set is somewhat preplanned.

Unreleased/unsigned stuff can be licensed no problem.

either that...or we're in for all 45 remixes of "say hello" and "wavy gravy" with Xpander thrown in for good measure.

I think legal (even though this isn't mp3) mp3-based mixes are going to be the wave of the future. I know several labels are doing this and are starting to get DJs to mix stuff that's already been licensed and sell said mix for $8 or whatever.

This in itself, is a cool idea. I'm just glad I'm not the guy who has to track down all those labels to license the stuff he's going to play.

Cheers,
