The first Late Night Tales release of 2016 is a very special project by Sasha, his first studio album in 14 years! Imagine listening to music inspired by Frahm, Richter and Steve Reich, but made by one of the UKs leading house and techno DJs. This is Sasha, but as you’ve never heard him before. Away from the hubbub of the club, the craziness of Ibiza, there’s a contemplative side to everybody. Forget the beats and the sweat and the billowing anthems; this quiet, undulating, at times pastoral piece is less about songs and anthems and more about texture and atmosphere. Scene Delete is a side of Sasha you’ve never heard before.

About three years ago, my collaborators David Gardner and ThermalBear and I wrote a song called Bring On The Night. I sent it to Ultraista and within a few days she sent it back with this amazing vocal on, with Nigel Goodrich playing keyboards. We tried to do club mixes but we just couldnt get it right. So it sat there doing nothing. Tracks like this kept building up, until finally last summer my frustration boiled over. Wed made so many tunes that I couldnt remember the names of half of them: What was that thing with a bass sound and a string line? It drove me mental. At the same time as we were logging these tracks, I was listening to the Jon Hopkins Late Night Tales and I thought a lot of the music wed been working on was in the same vibe. So I sent the music over to Late Night Tales and they really liked it. Initially, I thought wed just do a Late Night Tales compilation with maybe a few pieces of my own music. But as we went through everything wed worked on in the last two years, we realised we had about 50 pieces of music. So we started editing and compiling: Scene Delete is the end result. – Sasha, January 2016
