Sascha Lappessen, Thomas "Alisson" Lüdke, and Ralf Kappmeier, created Sash! in 1995. The previous year, the three had worked together, under the name of Careca, to produce a piece called "Indian Rave", which was a midly successful song. In 1995, Sash! released "It's My Life", which became a European club hit. In 1997, with Sabine Ohmes as the singer, Sash! released "Encore Une Fois". Described on Sash's biography as "the big break", it reached #2 in the UK Singles Chart, as well as reaching the top 10 of five countries' singles charts, and the top 20 of seven countries' singles charts.
In the same year, Sash! produced "Ecuador", and "Stay", which both also reached #2 in the UK Singles Chart. In 1998, Sash! released "La Primavera", which reached #3, "Mysterious Times", which reached #2, and "Move Mania", which reached #8. In 1999, "Colour The World" was sold, and it reached #15. The following year, "Adelante" was released, and it reached #2. "Just Around The Hill", and "With My Own Eyes", were also released in that year, reaching #8 and #10 respectively. "With My Own Eyes" became the last single released by Sash! in the United Kingdom for at least 8 years.
In 2007, Sash! released an album called '10th Anniversary', which was first sold in South Africa. The album was scheduled to be released in the United Kingdom by the end of May 2008, although this release has apparently been delayed. On June 20 2008, Sash! was ranked #168 on the DJ List. On 2008 Sash! came back with a new single "Raindrops" made together with Stunt- which is a remake of his first single "Encore Une Fois".
Sash! helped to create "Too Much Rain", a song released by United Deejays in 1998. Lappessen was one of the composers and lyricists behind "The Sun is Burning", which was released by Gisami in 1999. That year, Sash! also created a remix of "MA Baker" under the name of Boney M. Vs. Sash!. In 2000, Sash! helped produce "Le Soleil Noir", and the three also wrote the lyrics and composed the music. The song was released by Encore!. In 2003, Sash! helped produce Las Cosas I, when they were collaborating with La Isla (Isla San Juan). Lappessen, Lüdke, and Kappmeier, wrote the lyrics for "Abeja Maya", which was created in 2005 as part of a collaboration with Latinovela. That year, Sash! also worked on "Everytime we Touch", which was released by Lacara.
