DELTA HEAVY


BIO:
System Recordings released Sasha & John Digweed Present Delta Heavy, a DVD documentation of the most important DJ tour to ever hit America. Delta Heavy was the groundbreaking electronic music tour featuring the extraordinary DJ talents of Sasha, John Digweed, and Jimmy Van M. Visiting all corners of the States in 2002, the tour - promoted by Clear Channel - was attended by more than 85,000 people in six weeks and was voted by the American public as Best Event at DanceStar USA 2003. Along with touring acts The Chemical Brothers, The Prodigy and Underworld, Sasha & John Digweed are responsible for America’s mid-90’s dance music explosion. As a launching pad, their monthly residency at New York City’s famed club Twilo was a larger than life event that drew fans from all over the world. This was a cultural phenomenon that lifted the DJs to an almost mythical status across the country and opened the doors for a wave of other top international DJs. Despite releasing several popular mix CDs and playing to crowds in other cities, Sasha & John Digweed couldn’t possibly reach all their fans in a vast land like America. As a result, Sasha & John Digweed’s protégé Jimmy Van M. conceived a massive first-of-its-kind touring electronic music event. The revolutionary event was called Delta Heavy.
