Perera Elsewhere aka Sasha Perera is a London-born, Berlin-based musician, producer, song- writer and DJ. Using everything from gritty, indigenous sounds to her own warped vocals or trumpet, oscillating synths or dread-heavy basses, Perera creates soundscapes to house her songs as well as shape-shifting, psychedelic instrumentals. The result sees eerie ambient-blues, avant R&B & extra-terrestrial folk that seamlessly co-exist in the land of ‘elsewhere'.
Perera Elsewhere has released two albums on the Los-Angeles-based FoF music who she signed with in 2013. She has had songs licensed for TV & films eg. Oscar-winning Director Paolo Sorrentino's 'Loro' in 2018. She's received critical acclaim from media outlets such as the BBC, NPR, Pitchfork, Fader & The Guardian and has produced remixes for Gonjasufi on Warp Records, former Malaria-drummer Gudrun Gut, Madame Gandhi, Chino Amobi, PlanningtoRock and Polica .
Pre-elsewhere, Sasha was songwriter & vocalist of the project Jahcoozi. BBC radio icon John Peel played their first EP and called it 'pop music from the future’ and they released 3 albums after that. Thom Yorke placed 'Silikon' the song Sasha co-wrote with Modeselektor on his Itunes top-10 playlist in 2006.
Sasha has played all over the planet eg. Mutek Festival-Montreal, Shelter-Shanghai, Guggenheim-Venice, Fabric–London, Low End Theory in L.A. or Berghain in Berlin. In 2004 she co-curated 'Grimetime' party series at WMF club in Berlin, for which she booked artists such as Skepta or D-Double for their first gigs outside the UK.
