Sascha Yamashita is a multi-disciplinary artist who partitions his creativity between two fields, DJ’ing and conceptual fine art.
Always having had a passion for music but never learning to play, 13+ years ago he turned his hand (and ear) towards the creativity of mixing records. Today, Yamashita is known to DJ under two different monikers, the sly virus and Aleksandr - each delivering a different yet quality audio experience.
The sly virus mixes a multitude of funkier ‘house’ sub-genres including, Indie Dance, Nu Disco, Balearic, and Disco House to bring parties his unmistakeable style of ‘Deep Disco’.
Aleksandr (a new DJ project,13 years in the making) focuses his musical selections in deep, melodic and ethereal house music to give his audiences a sophisticated and emotional experience on the dance floor.
Regardless, of whichever moniker Sascha is performing under, he is known for perfectly curated & flawlessly mixed sets that can only be described as purely infectious!
