Beginning May 28, Sasha will embark on a U.S. tour where he'll demonstrate his custom Maven live-mixing controller. The tour will lead up to the June 21 release of Sasha's FUNDACIONnyc (Global Underground) which is the first mix album ever to be mixed on the Maven. While on tour, Sasha will utilize the custom Maven controller for his Ableton Live set-up. No turntables for these sets. Already successfully tested at his monthly Crobar residencies, he will sample, loop, and fuse elements from multiple songs at once with the controller.

The FUNDACIONnyc album has been created as a showcase of this technology. Sometimes as many as five tracks come together at once, creating an experience wholly owned by Sasha. "It's completely re-energized me again," says Sasha. "I'm jumping up and down in the DJ booth. And people can feel that on the dance-floor, they know."
