His new musical partner, Chris Coco, is one of Britain’s most well known DJs, currently serving as host of the popular show “The Blue Room” on BBC Radio 1. Chris’ background is rooted in dance music, making his start in the Acid House movement of the late Eighties. While collaborating on upbeat club anthems, Chris also started working more frequently in the “chill out” genre and also producing projects with musicians like Nick Cave and the legendary Peter Green of early Fleetwood Mac. Remasterpiece is new territory for Chris, as he and Sacha fuse two unique worlds by re-working some of the most beautiful and well-known melodies in classical music.
