One of Boston’s biggest nightclubs plays host to one of the world’s biggest DJs on Friday 15th May. Alongside East Coast native Tamer Malki, DJ Sasha headlines the Together Festival this year and we are honored to have him. Catch them both at Bijou during the festival and experience two experienced DJs doing what they do best – blowing the minds of anyone in the crowd.

DJ Sasha has been a global institution for almost two decades, it’s almost impossible to just write a short blurb about him considering the amount he has contributed to the music industry and how he has changed the face of electronic music in general. Sasha is one of the originals, playing illegal warehouse raves and clawing his way into the public eye through whatever means there were – his trance/techno hybrids inspired a whole new generation of DJs. Acid house is what it is because of the guy, and even now he is still changing his sound and playing around with new aesthetics. Known as well for his partnership with fellow DJ Digweed, perhaps their most well known collaboration was the “Northern Exposure” sets – an exploration of the concept album through the gaze of electronic music.

Tamer Malki knows Boston as well as the rest of us. A BU graduate turned DJ, Malki gave up the textbooks to focus on studying the art of music. He has influences as far reaching as Pink Floyd; “Steel Breeze” uses the guitar riff from “Shine on You Crazy Diamond” – and it’s not just classic rock he manages to imbue into his music. With a basis in house techno, he utilizes groovy funk and jazz to keep his music unique and interesting. If anyone can play a bill alongside Sasha this guy can do it; Tiesto himself featured Tamer Malki’s cuts on his radio show Club Life during the 2010 Miami Winter Music Conference.

These guys playing together is going to be a night of hypnotic dance music. Thanks to Bijou’s sound system in particular I’m imagining the crowd sort of entranced by the epic nature of Sasha’s music. Spanning over fifteen years of musical evolution, the genres don’t even matter between these two DJs – they can flawlessly flit between house, techno, trance, their sets flow too evenly to get caught up in analyzing the stylistic changes.

A dream come true thanks to Bijou Boston. Sasha at Together.

Sasha

If there are boundaries yet to be broken, you can bet that Sasha has got them in the crosshairs. He’s been battering them down since Shelley’s, The Hacienda, Renaissance and Twilo; from Airdrawndagger to Invol3r. Since 2011, he’s carved a new way with his increasingly pivotal... Read More →
