This EP is nice, but if you listen to Spooky's Little Bullet Part One right after you listen to this, the similarity will reveal itself. Sasha knows all the hot tunes but just like any other dj who releases material under his or her name, lacks originality in the production of music. They are like cover artists. Todd Terry is a prime example. Anyhow, the other songs are still okay. Personally I am disappointed in how sweet dreams, private eyes, tainted love, every breath you take, cybotron's clear, and kraftwerk's computer world all have become hit songs performed by someone else. A little sample here and there would be okay, but I don't think it cool to use it as your own.

Gotta say Baja is one of the best tracks i've ever heard. Just builds and builds and when he drops that little noise in at 6min? The track just picks you up on its own, no drugs needed!

This entire EP is brilliant. Too often it seems that a CD single will contain only remixes or the odd B-side track, but Sasha puts nearly half an album on this EP, and it works. Xpander is epic. This huge club hit has a heavenly breakdown that I will never forget. Belfunk is raw Sasha in action, complete with a chilling, eerie melody transposed on a creative baseline. Rabbitweed always paints a picture of a different world in my mind. The screaming electronic string section, nearly four minutes in, always makes me feel like I’m out of my body. To cap it off, Baja is a percussion-based chilled sound with yet another catchy baseline. Evidently, I’m a big fan of this EP. Since my tastes usually stay within the boundaries of trance, I’d recommend this item to anyone with an interest in electronic music of any type. I feel that it is significant enough to break the barriers between genres, as it did for me, and have meaning as an achievement in electronic music production.

Sasha's EP "Xpander" is one of those CDs that you can listen to over and over without getting tired of. The track "Expander" is more a club hit, while some of the others, especially the last two (Baha and rabbitweed) can take you to another world entirely.
