From humble New York City beginnings to multi-year Ibiza residencies; from digging in dusty crates to headlining festival main-stages around the world, Roger Sanchez has truly blazed his own path in this thing we call House Music.
What began in the late 80s in Corona, Queens, attending parties by the Bronx River and other jams as a break-dancer and graffiti artist, Roger Sanchez was introduced to DJing through friends, trying his hand in an organic environment where his creativity behind the decks flourished from a few singles into an ambitious catalogue of over two thousand original productions and remixes. The rest, as they say, is history. Now, some two+ decades later, Roger Sanchez hasn’t stopped grinding. For those unfamiliar (besides, where have you been?), just a quick search will yield a prolific output of productions, remixes, performances, and alias,’ with 2016 showing that the “S-Man” surely has no signs of slowing down.
Tomorrow, 23 September, Roger Sanchez drops by Detroit’s Grasshopper Underground with support from resident Golf Clap. Anticipating the event, Roger has been gracious enough to drop an exclusive mixtape for us.
