Sash! biography

Records company : Byte Records. Sash! is a group consisting of 3 members, Sascha Lappessen, Thomas Lüdke (aka Thomas Alisson), and Ralf Kappmeier. Sascha is the frontman, the one who appears in the videos and performs live. They have sold over 22 million albums worldwide and earned more than 65 Gold and Platinum awards. They earned Guinness Book entry for having 5 number 2 hits in a row

Sascha met Thomas as they were both working in the same club : Thomas was the DJ, Sasha was the waiter. Then Thomas introduced Sascha to his friend Ralf. Ralf and Thomas had already contributed to eurodance project Minnesota and their cover of the 4 Non Blondes What's Up?. They also released a few tracks as Tokapi, which would became their producers' name for Sash! and the name of their studio. The new trio's first single was for a project called Careca, which released the 1993 single Indian Rave.

The first single released was It's My Life in 1995. It was at first planned to be released under the name Careca, but the records company refused. The single did very well in the club, especially in Belgium.

But the success started with the second record Encore Une Fois (meaning "Once Again" and featuring Sabine Ohmes' voice), released in 1997. The song raced through the club charts in Italy, Germany, Holland and the Scandinavian countries, then entered the top 10 in many countries, even topping the charts in Greece and Ireland, as well as Eurochart Hot 100. In the UK, it was #2 ans sold gold. In the US, it went #1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart, staying on the chart for 14 weeks The song was actually recorded on one single day, which was Sascha's anniversary day. He liked the song, but he would have never guessed the success would have been so massive.

The music video was directed by Oliver Sommer. When the single was originally released, a pressing-plant error swapped the first two tracks (Original edit, used in the music video, and Future Breeze edit). This gave the Future Breeze remix accidental exposition, allowing it to become the official version. The records company then wanted the trio to reuse the successful formula on their next single, but they refused.

The third release was Ecuador, which proved to be even stronger as its forerunner. Featuring Adrian Rodriguez, it was a #1 hit in the Scandinavian Dance Chart and also made it to the Top 5 in the sales charts in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. It was also on the Top 10 Music & Media European single charts. In the Summer of 1997 the album It's My Life was released and it was a success. The fourth release was Stay!, a powerful dance track featring LaTrec (Frankie McCoy who also contributed to the songwriting), in the same style as the previous two hits. Oliver Sommer directed the music video once again, it was shot in Paris, in La Défense business district. On MTV Europe, some scenes in the video were left out from the original music video.

Sash! released a single in March 1998 called La Primavera, the first one from their second album Life Goes On. It featured vocals by Patrizia Salvatore, who was not credited. The single was a Top 5 hit in at least six countries, including Ireland, the UK, and several Nordic countries. In July they released a song entitled Mysterious Time and it featured Tina Cousins on vocals. L'Oréal used the Future Breeze remix of Encore Une Fois for the promotion of their Elseve shampoo in TV ads.

On August 17, the long awaited sophomore album Life Goes On was released. It contained 11 new songs including the hits La Primavera and Mysterious Times and one Hit Mix by Oliver Momm. In late 1998 the single Move Mania featuring Shannon was released (Shannon scored many hits during the 80s, among them Let The Music Play which was covered by many eurodance projects), followed in January 1999 by Colour The World which featured no other than Dr Alban on vocals.

Apart from their own career they keep on collaborating with other groups. For example Basic Connection featuring Sash! whose song Angel (Don't Cry) did very well in some countries' charts... They also did many remixes, for 2 Unlimited, ATB, Jean-Michel Jarre, OMD, Savage Garden, Dario G, Kylie Minogue, Boney M...

Announcing a new album, a new single entitled Adelante! was relesed, followed by Just Around The Hill once again featuring Tina Cousins' voice.

The next one was With My Own Eyes, featuring the finnish singer Inka, to be released on August 28th. The video was shot outside Helsinki on June 11th. The single also included the song Rock The Block. In Spain and in Denmark Together Again was released instead. The fourth single was planned to be Together Again, set to be released in November. Actually it was never really released, it only aired on Spain and Denmark's radios. The next album was a greatest hits album, entitled Best of Sash! released the 13th of November.

As for Sabine Ohmes, she released soon Le Soleil Noir (meaning "The black sun", featured on the latest Sash! album) with her soloproject Encore. Meanwhile, Sash! made a remix of Dani's The Meaning of Love. There were 2 remixes on the Maxi version. It was the first Sash! remix for the year 2000.
