From Beatport's interview with Sasha:
"...there is a fantastic underground over there [America] at the moment. We did a small clubs tour out there last year and had an amazing time. Lots of cool venues and closing sets at festivals, so the underground is healthy as well as the tip of the iceberg, thus I can’t complain about it. The numbers of kids going out now is just insane. Every city seems to have two or three touring DJs at any night and the competition is mad. There is a definite eagerness and that is great"
Sasha speaking positively about the American scene is cause for celebration.
