#forthemusic in “the full esp”
friday 26th nov – from 4pm gmt/5pm cet
Hello, Sacha here, and welcome to ‘The Full ESP’.
This is the first in my new series of talk shows, where I’ll simply be chatting openly and honestly to a whole host of people, and sharing my thoughts and feelings with you.
I’m coinciding this podcast with the launch of my blog, and my return to the Radio airwaves. My music led show, Extra Sensory Perception will be taking listeners into the next musical dimension with me, live every week aligning with my new blog, where I’m finally going to be publishing some of the thoughts that I have rolling round in my head every day.
I’ve always been a book worm; I just love reading and writing. I’ve been putting pen to paper all my life, I have notebooks full of my scribblings, many letters written from the heart and never sent. It’s part of my own personal therapy, but I’ve never published any of it. Fear holds you back in all kinds of ways, and being quite a private person really, I’ve always kept most of this to myself. However, since the encouragement I’ve received from my partner in crimes of love and music; my husband Mike, I now feel ready to put it all out there, and see what happens, heh what have I got to lose?
Truth matters massively to me; I am an honest soul, too honest and open for my own good maybe at times. That said, this has not only kept me relatively safe from some harm, but it has undoubtedly saved my sanity in testing times. My blog, my show, my podcast conversations will be nothing if not REAL. I’m not one to talk idle chit chat, passing the time of day is not something I enjoy, or like to do. I love real talk, about anything and everything if it’s not bullshit, I am in. I love nice people, good music, animals, especially cats, and I love creativity in all its forms, and I really love a good natter.
ESP is my real birth initials and I’ve always loved the magical side of life and my sixth sense has developed over my 47 years. They call me psychic Sacha (I don’t know who they are but anyway), and I can freak myself and others out with it on regular occasions. My spiritual faith is a now a great support system to me and plays a major part in my daily life, so if the hat fits, wear, I do love hats
In my first conversation I’ve gone straight in on a subject that is hot topic but also quite taboo. It is extremely sensitive, emotional to discuss, but some things are too important to not talk about. This is a very important subject to me and I feel should be, to everyone who believes in true equality for all.
As a woman of over 25 years in the business, having left home at 16, and made my way independently in the world, I’ve seen a lot shall we say, and not all of it good.
Sexual harassment and disrespect have been prevalent throughout whether it be in personal or business life, it’s tough being a woman running a business alone. In the dance music industry being a social industry, there is no line between work and pleasure. Egos are rife and out of control and I’ve watched this get worse, not better.
So, for this first episode I’ve invited a lady, artist, and industry friend that I have known throughout my career, who has a vast amount of experience in this subject. dj rebekah and me both entered this industry many moons ago from the modelling world, we both now know the business inside out. I’ve seen her battle through, to rise to the top of the Techno game, where she is right now. Winner of DJ mags Best of British in 2019, she has fought hard through her own personal battles, and is constantly subjected to gender bias, sexual discrimination and harassment and abuse along the way, #metoo.
In lock-down, she publicly shared her story and started the #forthemusic campaign; a movement to stamp out all sexual harassment on our dance floors and within our music world. In this conversation we talk frankly about the Morillo revelations, and question why the deafening silence from those with influence, why the continued glorifying after Erick’s death, and why we should all be willing to stand up for true respect and equality, within our global community.
I’d love to hear your thoughts and comments, get involved in the conversation, if you have your own story share it with me, I want to hear everyone’s thoughts, as long as they are delivered with kindness and good intention, we can all do without more abuse in this world.

This is truly an “all-corners-of-the-club” show, featuring a carefully-curated hour of underground electronic music from the UK and around the world, loads of genres represented and championed. My show is portioned into three sections: #1 is The First 30 Mix, which is 30 minutes of what I feel are the most important tracks to hear at the moment, both brand-new and rediscovered. Much of the time there is a ‘theme’, of sorts, either house/tech house/vocal house, or techno/ leftfield, etc. #2 is the first part of the second half of the show, and typically it is comprised of my ‘Weekly Recommended Dose Of Drum N Bass’—you can count on UK jungle, DnB, and breakbeat in this segment. Closing out the show is #3, my DISC 2 segment, the ‘flip side’ of the previous 45 minutes. In this segment, I introduce a “chill-out” to wrap up the show, usually featuring ambient house or leftfield, downtempo, deep house, or indie/ experimental. For me, Mind The Gap is a bit of a ‘musical journey’ that I take my audience on each week. The last weekend of every month is a slightly different format: I present The First 30 Mix during the first half, and then in the second half, I feature my Best Of The Month Playlist, in which I hand-pick some of my favorite tracks from the past 4 weeks. Once per month, I feature local talent in the form of a 30-minute ‘guest selector’ mix of many different electronic genres. And lastly, at the end of the year, in December, it’s all about my Best Of 2019 (whatever year) playlist, in which I curate mixes of my favorite tracks from the entire year just gone. I might feature a bit of new music in the beginning of the show, but the bulk of the show will be devoted to a retrospect.close
