Deconstruction Records is back. In a joint venture between SonyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Senior Vice President of A&R Mike Pickering, one of the labelÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s founder members, and Three Six Zero Group’s AnD press, the dance imprint has returned with a series of back catalogue releases before signing new artists later in the year.
The labelÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s first re-release is SashaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬ËœXpanderÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, digitally re-mastered at Abbey Road and available via Beatport for the first time in original and 7Ã¢â‚¬Â versions. Following this will be LionrockÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬ËœPacket Of PeaceÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, complete with the seminal Chemical BrothersÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ remix.
A decade on from its original release, Ã¢â‚¬ËœXpanderÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ is considered one of SashaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s most enduring Ã¢â‚¬ËœclassicsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢. Co-produced with SpookyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Charlie May, its instantly recognisable synth lines still send dancefloors into raptures, and as a much sought after piece of vinyl on ebay and other collector sites this digital release should appease global demand.
Sasha needs little introduction. BritainÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s most iconic DJ and producer remains one of the most enigmatic figures in global dance music. Last yearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Invol2ver album was met with widespread critical acclaim, and on the production front his new label emFire has become a go-to stable for his own music. His recent remix of DovesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Ã¢â‚¬ËœJetstreamÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ will soon be joined by re-workings for Pole Folder (Ã¢â‚¬ËœHate MyselfÃ¢â‚¬â„¢) and Damian Lazarus (Ã¢â‚¬ËœSpinninÃ¢â‚¬â„¢). He will shortly embark on a North American tour followed by Australia (see www.djsasha.com for details).
