Sash! was one of many artists on the German X-IT Records label in the mid 90s, with close links to producers Jurgen Driessen, Ramon Zenker, Blank & Jones, Oliver Klein (King-O) and Stefan Bossems of Cosmic Gate. The only distinction is that Sash! managed to achieve mainstream success worldwide.

While most of the popular singles are cheesy and pop oriented, there were some good remixes under the name of "Sash!", such as the remixes of Jean Michel Jarre's Oxygene 7 and 10.

I have no shame in admitting i like Sash! It's down to him that i DJ and that i'm into Trance/dance music today. For had i not discovered his mid-late 90's tracks, i'd never have gone on to explore electronic dance music like i did. Sure i liked Speed Garage, but it died way to quickly. When i heard Sash! sound, i loved the melody, the bass grooves, and just how uplifting it was.

Sure, he's cheese laden, i'm sure he'll admit that, but his record sales speak for themselves. In his day, he was unstoppable. I think secretly, we all like at least one of his records. It is true, that a popular artist will entice a noobie listener and ease them into a scene for them to explore it. Sash! had this effect on me. After i discovered Sash! i uncovered a wealth of more progressive tracks and a whole club culture which made sense to me and gave me some of the best times and happiest memories of my life (think Gatecrasher, Sunny D, Passion, Slinky etc etc).

The track that really made me scratch the surface of "trance" was "Mysterious Times" feat. Tina Cousins, which, still sounds absolutely fantastic today. It's got such a nice melody to it and, the vocal performance is really really good. I just remember hearing this for the first time and being blown away by it. Remember, i was a young naive 17 year old at the time!

I only wish Sash! could have moved with the times. He/they were a talented bunch with a keen ear for a great melody.

Sash! along with Ferry Corsten, are solely responsible for my love of electronic dance, and for that, i just have love for them.

SASH! is one of the most talented artists about. He has had huge success around the globe and sales around the 20 million mark. Not bad for a DJ from a small town in Germany that appeared from no-where. SASH! is original and doesn't pretend to be something they're not. He has admitted that his music is 'handbag trance'! Sash! has worked with many famous artists such as : Tina Cousins, TJ Davis, Sarah Brightman and Boy George! SASH! has also had amazing success in the UK with nine top-10 hits and five of those singles going to No.2. Not bad!!! Let's hope the hits keep on coming and that SASH! is around for many years to come.

Extremely talented trance artist -hard beats, cool melodies, great sounds. Far beyond most of the other extremely boring dribble in the world of trance. I always enjoy Sash!'s music when I hear it, from "Encore Un Fois" to "Track To Download" and everything in between, even "Ecuador." Give respect to a musically talented trance artist who isn't afraid to use a TB303 and an TR808. The music is extremely catchy, something that I like a lot.
