The launch of Sasha’s emFire label was undoubtedly one of the main talking points during the last half of 2007. Four original tracks were released and the discussion raged: which was best or least favourite be it at home or in a club? Was Mongoose really Sasha? And, of course, who killed Sparky? Now the debate is set to continue as Sasha releases ‘The emFire Collection’.

A definitive view of Sasha’s emFire catalogue featuring originals, remixes and his award winning score to the movie ‘New Emissions Of Light & Sound.

Disc 1 plays host to ‘The Remixes’, which invites four of the world’s most exciting producers to present their interpretations of the emFire catalogue by way of a totally unique twist. Each carefully selected artist was commissioned to provide two versions - a traditional club and alternative, leftfield mix. The result is a very special, duplicitous ride through the minds of Slam, Audion, Radio Slave and The Field totaling an unmixed 70 minutes. The anticipated, incredible results beg one question – which do you prefer?

Disc 2 features 3 exclusively edited originals and the previously unreleased ‘Spangled Rubdub’ of Coma alongside Sasha’s 40 minute, mixed score to the surf movie ‘New Emissions Of Light & Sound’. The score, which has never been released in audio format, recently took top honours at the X Dance Awards that run in conjunction with the esteemed Sundance Film Awards and are effectively the Oscars equivalent of the sport movie industry. A beautiful, haunting ride, the extended piece provides a fitting conclusion to this bumper emFire package.

Finally, in spite of 2 discs and over 2 hours of music, the ‘Collection’ will be released at the mid-price point of just £7.99 (or near equivalent overseas); arguably one of the best value releases you’ll find in 2008
