Time and again, when everything appears to have come to a complete standstill, you will find yourself seriously wondering what the future of electronic club music is going to be like. What will come next? And it was at that very moment when suddenly a new record appeared on the market to satisfy this longing for new, fresh sounds: Sascha Dive’s “The Basic Collective Pt. 1″. In the meantime, almost 4 years and innumerable releases later, a new genre of house music has developed from and around the concept of this young, highly inspired Frankfurt-based artist. This sound is characterized by dark, driving rhythms with clear references to the U.S. American house music of the 1990s. The German Groove magazine called it “Rhein-Main-House"- a very accurate term to describe this movement. But Sascha Dive’s success story goes far beyond and overseas: He is the only “white producer” who was given the honour of getting a remix version made by no other than the grandmaster of house music: Moodymann himself.Sascha Dive has been successful both as a producer, and as a DJ. When you talk with him about club music, and in particular house music, you almost get the impression of talking to a human encyclopaedia. His expert knowledge combined with his definition of contemporary club tunes makes his sets a unique experience. He takes the audience on a trip towards the future and the past, and at the end of the night gently back into the here and now again. A couple of years ago, in spite of his busy schedule and the time he would spend in his studio, Sascha Dive decided to found his own label “Deep Vibes Recordings", and to do his own research in the aesthetics of contemporary house sounds. He released tracks of co-fellows such as Johnny D, Christian Burkhardt, Ray Okpara and Robert Dietz, as well as of his own most-favourites such as Rick Wade, Scott Furgeson, Borthers Vibe, DJ Qu, Sean Dimitrie & Tim Fuller, and Norm Talley.
