We stopped Sacha Kljestan in the training room prior to today’s session at Ellis Park and made him take off his earphones to answer a few questions about the music he is listening to at the moment:

So what’s on your playlist right now?

“Well, right now I’ve got the latest Kanye West album on. I like most of his stuff a lot. And I just finished up listening to the new Jay Z album, American Gangster, the one that was released alongside the movie. I haven’t seen the film yet, but I’ve heard it’s pretty good.

So who’s your favorite hip hop artist?

“Right now, I’d probably say The Game, but he hasn’t had a new album in a bit. All time probably Dre. I’m really anxious for his new album to come out.

If it ever comes out…

“Yeah I suppose it has been like that for a few years now, huh?”

Obviously you’re traveling a lot during the season. How do you keep up with new music?

“It’s hard, but I manage. My brother helps out a lot. He sends me tons of stuff that he likes or he thinks I’ll like. That makes it easier.

So what else are you listening to?

“I like the Chili Peppers a lot. Their old stuff is classic, but their new stuff is good, too. I’m really into Stadium Arcadium. The Killers’ stuff I enjoy too. Both their albums I really like.

Do you get to go to live shows much?

“Not as much as I would like to, but I do make sure to see Hellogoodbye whenever they’re in town. I went to high school in Huntington Beach with those guys, and it’s great to see them doing really well.”
