With a REAL name like Robotti, it may seem obvious that you're set for a life working in a synthesizer factory or in Artificial Intelligence. However, this Italian-German, Belgium bred 3rd culture polyglot with a Russian first name, has a huge talent for music, which surfaced very quickly when he started to play the cello from age 7. In his teens in the 90s, Sacha discovered the rumblings of the underground house and techno scene of his native Brussels, which inspired him so much that he put down the bow and picked up the turntables. Influenced by the greats of this era: Green Velvet, Aphex Twin, Jeff Mills, DJ Funk, Thomas Bangalter, Dave Clarke, he was soon honing and mastering his own DJ skills. Graduating with an architecture degree from Edinburgh, he moved to Berlin to get fully submerged in the underbelly of the city's nightlife at the turn of the millenium.
After first self-released vinyls around 2004, Master studies in music with Karl Bartos (formerly of Kraftwerk), and an album under the Berlin DJ duo alias Robosonic with his production buddy Cord, Sacha Robotti put his name on the map as a solo producer with his toe-wobbling debut "Tingly Trumpets" in 2010. Focusing on solo work, Sacha then found a home on Klasse, teaming up with label head Luca Lozano for their first release "Bartok".
2012 started as an Olympic year for Mr. Robotti as his track "The Major" feat. DJ Rush dropped on Dirtybird, the label from SF he's loved since its beginning! His track was played by DJs like Seth Troxler, Ellen Allien, Miss Kittin, Joris Voorn, and the whole DB crew. Later that year, Sacha released some epic remixes: of Audiojack feat. Kevin Knapp on Gruuv, of Zombie Disco Squad feat. DJ Funk on Made To Play, and of Deo & Z-Man on Opossum. Also, his original "Move EP" with remixes by Tim Green and Michael Tello of PillowTalk, as well as the ghetto-house flavoured "The Big Ol EP" dropped on Klasse (with a remix by the legendary Waxmaster Maurice of Chicago's Dance Mania fame
