‘The moment we walked off stage at the Barbican we were saying ‘we have to do this again’’ Sasha says. ‘We didn’t really have a plan in place. We had no idea the response to those shows was going to be so amazing. So this is Round 2, and we’re getting to perform at two more iconic UK venues. We are looking to change the show slightly to incorporate some new music and make these shows as special and unique as the Barbican ones in May. We can’t wait!’

In REFRACTED:LIVE the Welsh producer and Grammy nominee plays live on piano and electronics alongside his core production team (long-time collaborators Charlie May/Spooky, Dennis White/Thermal Bear, and Dave Gardner), with an 8-piece string section, a percussionist and live vocalists. Those lucky enough to get Barbican tickets bore witness to a special performance of his Scene Delete album as well as a reinterpretation of iconic tracks from his back catalogue, including Wavy Gravy and Battleships.

Sasha has been hard at work in the studio, spurred on by overwhelming audience response to his audacious new venture, and his new track ‘True’ drops on Late Night Tales on October 13th. Featuring London-based band Dems’ haunting vocals, the emotive style echoes the shimmering soundscapes of Scene Delete, infused with the innovative flair of a musician currently at the top of his creative game.
