The Liquid Room is no longer able to re-open this weekend for Sasha's performance on Saturday, but the world-renowned DJ and producer is still to play in the city for the first time in 7 years.
One of Edinburgh's most popular venues, the Liquid Room closed 18 months ago after a fire broke out at the Indian restaurant upstairs and made the venue unusable. This followed a spate of bad luck for Edinburgh clubs, after the the loss of La Belle Angele in the Cowgate fire and the closure of The Venue due to redevelopment.
The Liquid Room has been undergoing renovations since then in the hope of re-launching for this special appearance by Sasha, which also marks the relaunch of monthly event Musika. However, the club has been forces to delay the re-opening until Mon 19 Jul to ensure it meets full health and safety requirements.
Luckily, a contingency plan was in place and the gig has been moved to the HMV Picture House, which will use the Liquid Room's new top-notch audio, visual and lighting equipment to guarantee the night is a high quality production. Sasha will be joined by Max Cooper, Alan Dobson and Derek Martin, with a pre-club party taking place at the City Café before the main event.
Sasha is one of the world's most foremost progressive house DJs and producers, particularly well-known for his productions mixes. In 2004, his remix of Felix da Housecat's 'Watching Cars Go By' was nominated for a Grammy award. Saturday will be is his first appearance in the capital for almost a decade, where he will showcase tracks from his new album Invol2ver, as well as his classic hits and mixes.
