In an interview with Time Out New York over the weekend, Sasha revealed his plans to release the third installment of his Involver series and how he’s going to keep its sound closer to the first one. The Involver series, which consists of Sasha’s reworkings of tracks by other artists, is a fusion of mix album and production record. During the interview, Sasha had this to say about the series and the upcoming release,
“It’s just my take on the evolution of the DJ compilation. For the first one [in 2004] I had signed a deal to do a compilation, but I felt like I needed to do something more than just mix a few tracks together and make a good mix. So instead, I got the parts, the stems, of the songs I wanted to use, and kind of remixed and reedited them, and turned the whole thing into a hybrid of a DJ compilation, a remix album and an album of my own productions. And the first two were received very well; people constantly were asking me if I was going to do another one. So when it came around to thinking of what I wanted to do this year, a new one seemed like the logical choice.”
