Sasha Robotti


Having an in-depth knowledge of airports might be enough to get you labelled as an international DJ these days, but describing the German-Italian Sacha Robotti, who was born and raised in Belgium, educated in the UK and Germany and now resides in the US after a significant stint in Berlin, as ‘international’ doesn’t really do him justice.

With a back catalogue stretching back to 2005 that includes releases on Klasse, FOOD, Snatch!, Octopus Recordings, Sweat It Out, Desert Hearts, a Beatport #1 on Suara, and multiple projects on Claude Vonstroke’s Dirtybird, solid foundations were laid for the 2019 launch of Sacha’s Slothacid imprint which has been making serious waves in the scene. The label has caught the eye of Forbes, Billboard and BBC Radio 1 with its releases, most notably with a family-collaboration by genuine techno royalty, Dantiez, Damarii, Ann and Kevin Saunderson.

For Sacha, as well as overseeing the exponential growth of the Slothacid project, launched with a sold out, 30 date open to close tour in 2019, his focus on releasing music that represents his genre-spanning sets saw him joining forces with SIAN on Octopus to close out 2020, and the promise of collabs with names like Kevin Knapp and Dantiez Saunderson ensures he will hit the ground running in 2021.
