Artist Profile: Sasha Raskin
Jerusalem-based Sasha Raskin has cleverly named his musical style "electroacoustic," a fitting term that perfectly describes the singer's seamless blending of classic instruments and electronic noise. "Quantum Love" combines watery ambient sounds with tribal drums and a flute solo, while "Only Music" mixes drum n' bass rhythms and synths with everything from blasts of fat brass and funked-out guitars to plucked violin strings and jazzy saxophone lines. A must-listen for audio junkies.
