In celebration of the artists, music, and community that have made Last Night On Earth the imprint it is today and in the future. Part of the TEN series, Vol. II is a three-track collaboration by progressive-house heavyweights. Following the TEN release after the recent single ‘Aiavtor,’ progressive pioneer Sasha collabs with the hotly tipped Alex Banks [Monkeytown, Ninja Tune], up and coming producer Mr. Sosa [Anjunadeep], and a pioneering live band and electro-post-punk group Pumarosa.
The new EP reflects the imprint’s forward-thinking approach from Sasha's multi-talented DJ and producer. His way of thinking in creating music and passion for the progressive scene shifted to a new realm of dance music. This opens a new chapter and expresses the craft and artistry of producing.
‘Australia’ is a melody-rich four-by-four 8 minutes of constant transformation. Showcasing the melodic sensibility Alex Banks & Sasha share, Banks is an exciting addition to LNOE. His previous album on Modeselektor’s Monkeytown won critical acclaim, and he’s received remix requests from RY X and Bonobo. ‘Australia’ drops just ahead of his next solo album on Max Cooper’s Mesh imprint.
Sasha’s collaboration with Mr. Sosa has a more contemporary vibe with ‘Who U Are’. The pitch-shifted vocals and chords discharge tension in any room. The upcoming producer has gained momentum with his acid and breaks-influenced house. Mr. Sosa has many releases on Of Unsound Mind, Anjunadeep, and Street Tracks this year alone.
The collaboration with Puarosa lead singer Isabel Munoz, ‘Just Ust’ is the third track of the EP. The obscure sound filled with deep and morphed production. The soothing melody of her soft voice places a politically driven output. Built around a synthesizer riff, this track displays how powerfully a few elements can impact the imagination—championed by top-tier tastemakers including Lauren Laverne, DIY, and The Line of Best Fit.
The LNOE tour is in full force. Sasha will continue his tour in Brooklyn, NY, Barcelona, Ibiza, Madrid, London, and Amsterdam. Listen to the new three-track EP, and transition into another dimension in electronic music.

Electronic pioneer, Sasha announces ten new collaborations and ten special international LNOE events.

Anyone who has experienced a special Sasha set or LNOE event left people with a memorial imprint. “As the label hits this milestone, I want to tell our story - the music, unity, expression, and relationships at the heart of the brand,” - Sasha
The first part of Sasha’s project is the rework of ‘Aviator’ by Photek. It was released during the lockdown Livestream debut at Beatport ReConnect, he felt the big track needed to be released. Takes the track into his own with deep and defying chords that release an ecstasy of obscure percussion.
‘When you could drop it to 2000 people in a club and they go mental’. I’ve always been a huge fan of Photek. The first time I heard ‘Aviator’ I knew it had all the elements of an amazing club record, but the original was too slow, I think it’s 105 bpm. We actually did a rough mix when I was working on Involver 3 that didn’t end up making it onto the album as it didn’t fit the rest of the music, but I’ve always felt it was something really special. Now with ‘TEN’ I just had to revisit it - I thought wow, this is enormous - what are we thinking, we have to put this out there!’ - Sasha
‘TEN’ features a mix of surprise debut collaborations, including Alex Banks (Monkeytown, Ninja Tune), Mr. Sosa (Anjunadeep), live band Pumarosa and some welcome returns. The label’s keeping a tight lid on the other names for now, so expect some big surprises over the coming weeks.
