In addition to mixing and DJing, Sasha joined Charlie May of Spooky to produce the Xpander EP, the title track of which many clubbers still view as “one of the greatest trance tracks of all time”. He used the title track as a centerpiece for Global Underground 013: Ibiza, his second Global Underground release. The EP charted on release, peaking at number 18 on the UK Albums Chart. In 1999, the EP won an award at the International Dance Music Awards for “Best Techno/Trance 12″”. The title track and the EP were named after the Oberheim Xpander synthesizer, prominently used in the song.
