One of the original superstar DJs, Sasha needs little introduction for his melodic style with techy undertones, and ‘Last Night On Earth’ is his well-respected record label.
Sasha collaborates with rising star Qrion on ‘Dry & High’, the latest release from Last Night On Earth’s TEN series where Sasha celebrates a key landmark for his imprint with ten collaborations and ten global special events.
Qrion has been clocking up the milestones herself – DJ Mag’s Future Star 2021, one of Forbes Japan’s 30 Under 30 and a North American headline tour. The Japanese producer’s debut LP on Anjunadeep, ‘I Hope It Lasts Forever’ was critically acclaimed across the board, and Billboard listed it as one of their best dance albums of 2021.
Her Last Night On Earth debut ‘Monolith’ was a track that introduced her to fans of the record label, and she is back with another fantastic track, but this time made in collaboration with Sasha. Her style is eclectic, using sounds around her in her music, playing with genres, times, and textures to create a deeply individual hypnotic style of deceptively gentle house.
Sasha said: ‘I love Qrion’s music and it was great to have her release on the label last year, her track did really well and the fans loved her’ Sasha says. ‘I sent her this demo which I’d been toying around with, she really connected with it and I loved what she sent back. We went back and forth on it a bit and it just came together really easily.’
‘Dry & High’ is a lo-fi feast, with a sweetly melodic vocal phased, fuzzed and shaped into an instrument over a stealthy cat-feet beat and quietly growling bass. A meditative musical mandala for those blissed-out club moments or intimate listening.
Qrion said: “I am so honoured to be able to collaborate with one of my favourite artists and love how the track ended up’ Qrion says. ‘Sound wise you can hear the elements unique to each of our producing styles. You can hear his classic style of bass and progressions and my vocal chops and melodic pad. I can’t wait to play it at the club!’
The track follows Sasha’s recent TEN collaborations with Photek, Alex Banks, Mr. Sosa and Pumarosa, all of which have been garnering strong support across the dance music industry.
