Event flyer: BURN Tour w/ Sasha

Sasha will be playing in Bangalore, Friday, May 7th 2010 at E-Zone. Can't begin to explain how excited I am about this event. Sasha is without a doubt one of my all time favourite DJs. He changed my life. I've even told him, he's changed my life. Just got a shy smile in return. It all started during his Airdrawndagger tour, he had just released his much anticipated album (took 5 years in the making) and he was playing on a Wednesday, while I was studying in Orange County, California. My friend, asks me, "Are we going to Sasha?" And like a complete rookie, I reply, "Man, I have classes really early tomorrow. I'll never wake up." He quickly gives me a glare and says, "But it's Sasha, man." Couldn't say no and to be honest I haven't looked back since. Every single time 'The Man Like' played in LA from then on, I made sure to catch him live. I've seen him on vinyl, I've seen him on CDJs and I've seen him on Ableton. Been to every single one of his Foundacion nights in LA back in 2005, where he brought down a guest DJ to play with him. The night pictured above was my second favourite, where he played with legend Lee Burridge. The picture below and please take note of how happy I am (my friend Shah in the background, looking completely bedazzled over the tunes he was listening to)... was taken on my best Sasha night ever - his last Foundacion night where he played with Desyn Masiello.

Anyways guys, less talk from me and more about the competition. I've got 5 exclusive invites to the Sasha gig in Bangalore courtesy of the very kind people at Fountainhead. I just met up with the organizers and had a quick peek at the venue and holy fuck is this going to be huge. I've been seeing Sasha tweet about his visual set up being mind blowing and by the sound of it, they're setting it up in Bangalore. More to the point, Sasha seems to be back on fire, playing a much harder euphoric sound than before. I'm so excited, I've got butterflies. It's been 5 years since I've seen him play and even though this is just going to be a two hour set, I'm still really really looking forward to this.
Making the competition easy, giving away exclusive invites to the first 5 YHIHF readers to comment under this blog post with an answer to this question: Name the Sasha album that contains these three songs, Wavy Gravy, Bloodlock and Fundamental?
This is easily one of my most favourite albums... I always ask the people who I interview to name a few of their life changing albums... for me this would be on top of my list. You must listen to it.
