From early 90's Italian piano scream-ups, hardcore, breakbeat and thumping early motorbass techno through early German trance, progressive, progressive trance and then the early 2000's deepness before pioneering CD and Ableton mixing from around 2005 and then the fine-tuned whole experiences of Fundacion and Involver - the quiet Welshman, who became a DJ almost by chance, pioneered and defined every movement that was important.
Throughout this gigantic musical landscape there were landmark sounds and themes: twinkling synths, hypnotic melodies, cheese-free "proper" trance (aka. Sasha-trance), intense emotional swings between high and low, long periods of tension, tease, effects-laden breaks, exciting percussive rhythms and great big dirty riffs that seemed larger than the universe. There was something symphonic about how he played; his sets dared to create something larger any of the individual tunes he sought out (or, to be fair, was often sent first, so revered were his hands). His genius was in spotting how to stitch it all together into the famous Sasha "journey".
The plain truth of "Involv3r" is that these musical themes, which Sasha defined and which define him, take such a back-seat as to feel absent.Read more ›
There is something strange about Involver 3 and it's taken me a few days to figure it out but I've now realised that it's an unfinished project. I base this opinion primarily on the overall flow of the album and the mixing. Sasha does not release many mix albums and when he does release studio albums they are usually phenomenal in flow and mixing execution, this album bears all the hallmarks of Sasha's latest sound but the transitions from track to track are appalling at times. Take for example the transition from the Ananda project into the Zabiela track!!!.... Give me a break! Sasha does not mix like that! It's lazy, it's choppy, I thought my CD had jumped when i first heard it.... Again if you listen to the penultimate track mix into the Keep Shelly in Athens track... Choppy, lazy and completely un-Sasha like. He doesn't mix like that live so why would he do it on a studio album... My theory is that he was rushed into releasing this by the label or he forgot to listen to the final version all the way through because he was sick of working on it... Another reviewer suggested that the absence of Charlie May had a detrimental effect on the album, I can only think an absence from Sasha himself from the studio caused the mixing to be so poor because he should be embarassed to put his name to it when we know he can do so much better....Read more ›
Now onto some of the rather strange comments by other reviewers on amazon.
One reviewer has mentioned the more commercial sound of this album because it has been released on MOS label but I think you will find that the original Exposure albums were released on MOS and those 2 albums were in no way commercial sounding so just because a label releases commercial electronic/house music albums it does not mean that everything released will lean towards that.
One more reviewer has mentioned that this albums mixing sounds sequenced? What would you like him to do? dig out the 1210's and mix it straight from vinyl that has not been done again since exposure 1 and 2.
Is this a perfect album? No its not. Is this a 1 star album? not a chance. Sasha has been playing tracks similar to this for the last 6 months to a year so its not like its a break away into completely new ground. There is no breaks on the album but I was under no impression there would be the high hats are constant through the album and I like it. It reminds me of his abelton mix from maida vale for radio 1 which he used the same drum loop and cymbal crash through out the whole mix.Read more ›
