During a live interpretation of his highly-acclaimed ‘Scene Delete’ album on the Late Night Tales label, Sasha stuns the audience with a rework of his 1999 classic track, ‘Xpander’
Back in May Sasha delivered some incredible live displays for his reFracted shows at the Barbican with a range of beautiful compositions that included a deluge of his own tracks. The new version of his 1999 hit unloaded an overwhelming reaction and the 10-minute video shows the iconic moment unfolding in all its glory.
Sasha’s focus on the future and fresh worlds to conquer made it unlikely he’d revisit his classic cut ‘Xpander‘, which electrified dancefloors in the late nineties. But then, perhaps taking the whole audience by surprise at the Barbican, Sasha began a seemingly new piece which slowly revealed itself to be a special new rework, bringing the audience to their feet in a goosebump-inducing joyful finale.
Watch the full ten minutes of spine-tingling nostalgia unfold:
“From day one everyone was like “We’ve got to do Xpander!” Sasha says. ‘Of course, it was the scariest thing to tackle because it was such a big old record. We slowed it right down, put this really teasing intro in it that sounded very [Steve] Reich-ian. The moment that it opened up and the riff came in was a really special moment at the Barbican.” – Sasha
