For this summer edition of the303 presents, we are happy to welcome Sascha Dive.
Frankfurt’s Sascha Dive began his descent into house music’s deepest realms by exploring the soulful styles of the godfathers of the genre; Moodyman, Chez Damier and Ron Trent gave Dive a reverential appreciation for vinyl and he had his first official album pressed on wax in 2007. Since then, he has released a vast catalogue of productions and remixes on world-class labels such as Tsuba, Freebase, Deep Labs, Raum…Musik, Stir15, and Sven Väth’s Cocoon Recordings. Sascha has also maintained his own Deep Vibes label since day one, releasing tracks with his “house mates” Brothers Vibe, Robert Dietz, Christian Burkhardt and Markus Fix to name a few.
Dive’s musical selection is unparalleled and whether he’s spinning deep house, soulful minimal tech or mind-blowing techno, he knows how to provoke a crowd’s energy. Despite having played some of the largest clubs and festivals in the world, he remains humble and steadfast in an industry that pressures artists to cater to the mainstream masses. He has said, “the main thing is to keep that level. I am not one of the guys who wants more and more and speeds too fast in the end. It is so hard to make and play music on this dedicated level where you don't want to make any concessions to stay in the biz. Being true to myself is important. And being true to the music and my medium of choice: Vinyl!”
The event will be hosted by Strange People and opening duties will be fulfilled by Strange People's very own PERRY!
