Sasha/Digweed Delta Heavy 2002 Spring Tour

Recommended Posts

(New York, NY February 20, 2002) Nothing you do will prepare you for it. Make no mistake, Sasha and John Digweed¹s Delta Heavy Spring 2002 Tour will be the most unforgettable, surreal DJ event to ever hit America. The DJ experience can and should be more, and they couldn¹t be happier about raising the bar.

Pioneers of DJ culture, Sasha and John Digweed are once again planting the seeds of change with the Delta Heavy Spring 2002 Tour. This time, they aren¹t simply bringing their amazing music, but an entire arsenal, including devastating sound provided by the amazing Phazon Sound System, their own specially designed visuals provided by Imaginary Forces, plus interactive lighting that will respond to both the crowd and music. Each venue installation will be built from scratch and the production values will set a technological benchmark for DJs and herald the definitive S&D experience.

The Delta Heavy Spring 2002 Tour isn¹t just different, it's a revolution a reinvention of the DJ experience.

Playing together, Sasha and John Digweed are already legends. To legions of discriminating fans, they represent something magical and vital. They¹ve done so by remaining true to themselves and doing what felt right. It¹s that sincerity-coupled with their formidable talent-that has made them favorites with American crowds. From extensive U.S. tours to their celebrated residency at New York City's Twilo, their ecstatically praised performances have captivated hearts and minds. And with Delta Heavy, they¹re taking things even further.

The Delta Heavy Spring 2002 Tour is being produced by Kevin Lyman, President of Immortal Records Touring and Events, who produced the Warped Tour and worked in conjunction on the Lollapalooza tours. Kevin now brings his expertise to the world of electronic music. "It's a new challenge to bring the creativity of electronic music to a multitude of diverse venues" says Kevin. "It's also an honor to work on the first Delta Heavy, because it¹s a long term project. Hopefully, the Delta Heavy name will become synonymous with quality".

While the magnitude of the Delta Heavy Spring 2002 Tour¹s scale of production will elevate it into the consciousness alongside shows put on by Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, U2 and Jane¹s Addiction, the DJ duo are determined to not only make the events special, but also personal.

"Since we've did our first tour in OE96, we've watched the American scene grow and hopefully we've grown with it," says John and Sasha. "The Delta Heavy tour gives us an opportunity to play in cities we¹ve never played in before and bring something special to each and every event."

Helping spread the message is Imaginary Forces. Visionaries behind the mesmerizing opening credit sequence in the film Seven, among many other high profile projects, Imaginary Forces aren¹t simply providing the visuals for each event, but are leading a national campaign to establish an entire aesthetic. Karin Fong, creative director of Imaginary Forces says, "For us, developing the Delta Heavy experience means creating the story and look for their entire identity. Delta Heavy represents a OElost civilization¹ that has a past, present and future. Using a tribal theme, we've designed alter-egos for Sasha and John and are expanding the family of characters to include Jimmy Van M. Between all of us we are developing a concept as strong as the music, creating a world with both a sense of mystery and a sense of humor. We are experimenting with ways of connecting with an audience regardless of whether they are at the gig or reading about us in the media."

Co-conspirator to the Delta Heavy Spring 2002 Tour is New York's Jimmy Van M. Not only did he help develop the Delta Heavy concept, as the opening DJ, he is the master of ceremonies, setting the mood for each event. "Together with Sasha and John, we will use Delta Heavy to provide future support to the artists, DJs and music we believe in," he says. Like their music, with the Delta Heavy Spring 2002 Tour, Sasha and John Digweed are pushing out the boundaries of perception and imagination. It will be the event by which all other DJ events are judged.
