Sashanti

Alexander Sukhochev (aka Sashanti) is a creatively gifted person who fulfilled himself in many art forms including journalism, photography, writing, promotion and DJing. During the twenty years of the artistic career he became a prizewinning journalist, showed few of his photo exhibitions around the world and released a best-selling book in Russia about Goa named "The Goa Syndrome". Music though is given a very particular role among all, being a fuel for all the achievements.

Sashanti's music collection started to take shape with a rare electronic music in a still existing Soviet Union, which he played later on in the nightclubs of his small provincial hometown. Being a pioneer of the electronic movement in his native city, he felt the need to grow further. Next step was moving to the cultural centres of Russia Moscow and then St. Petersburg, where he continued to work and develop in the nightlife business.

In the year of 2004 Alexander is shifting the residency to Goa which triggered a new turn in his career as a disk jockey and promoter. In parallel with dominating local Trance music scene he brought fresh waves by playing Techno and House genres. It appeared to be a brand new phenomenon and attracted lots of interest from smart crowd. The music revolution in Goa is party credited to Sashanti since such venues as Shanti Goa and Soma Project appeared on the Aswem scene. Both places became popular seasonal hub for a quality good-timer community and hosted quite a big number of events featuring Mathew Johnson, Koze, Cheb-I-Sabbah, D’Julz, Bjorn Wilke, Djuma Soundsystem, dOP, SCSI-9, Klartraum, MathiasSchaffhaeuser, Cesare vs. Disorder, Shades of Gray, Bauchklang etc.

His influence and support of underground electronic music has expanded to Bangalore scene in 2013, where Alexander kickstarted as a creative director an exclusive entertainment program for private membership club Sanctum. The venue
hosted all significant Indian artists as Murthovic+Flish with live act, B.L.O.T with their new 3D visual show, Ankytrixx, Kini Rao, Inferno etc. Along with the dance events the first ever Bangalore music conference SMC and Kaato Music label night was introduced to the young producers and EDM industry professionals in association with Beatworx Studio, The Inventory India, Juicebox Records and Bjorn Wilke with his Kaato imprint from Germany.

Sashanti himself plays both dance and lounge music, which he carefully selects from Tech-house, Techno, Oriental Fusion and Chill-out sounds. Putting together atmospheric melodies and groovy tracks in his own matchless manner he captures light moods and employs subtle energies on the dance-floors. For the last years Sashanti played sets on all the main stages of big festivals in India and around: Big Chill (Goa, India, 2006), Sunburn (Goa, India, 2010-2013), Sula Fest (Nashik, India, 2010-2013), Universal Religion (Pokhara, Nepal, 2012). Besides, he is regularly invited to top Indian nightclubs, fashion shows and private parties. Every summer Alexander is touring in Europe and Russia, playing sets at such clubs as Palais in
Munich, Climax Institutes in Stuttgart, Supperclub and Club NL in Amsterdam, Katerholzig and Tresor in Berlin, Chapeau Rouge in Prague, Baalsaal in Hamburg as well as many other clubs in Russia and ex-soviet territory.
