Xpander is a 1999 EP by Sasha along with Charlie May, Andy Page (producer) and Gaëtan Schurrer.[1] This single was featured on many compilations such as Global Underground: Ibiza, Pete Tong's Essential Selection, Hooj Choons' Nu Progressive Era, and many other DJ mix compilations. It is considered a seminal release within the Progressive Trance community.[2] It was voted the 9th best Dance track of all time, by readers of Mixmag.[3]

The track is in some ways a tribute to the Oberheim Xpander synthesizer, which is the main synthesizer used in the track.

This track was also featured on the PlayStation game Wipeout 3.[4]
