Vinylcast Episode 5 is a set dug up from way back in 1997. It comes from the legendary Back To Basics club night in Leeds, and at the time DJ Sneak had no idea it had been recorded. The mixtape then started surfacing in record shops and became infamous. It's available here for the first time to stream and download, direct from DJ Sneak.
DJ Sneak and John Larner chat exclusively for Keepin' It Deep about the past, present, and future of house music. From his humble beginning in the Chicago underground to his globe trotting festival DJ sets, DJ Sneak has a unique perspective on where electronic music is heading.
DJ Sneak on Vinylcast 01:
â€œDetroit â€“ 1999 â€“ date not confirmed but a good guess â€“ This set was recorded at small club called Porter St. back around the same time DEMF was getting started. It was one of the best parties I played in Detroit hands down â€“ total underground vibe.â€More ›

Chicago, like Puerto Rico, is a city rich with musical styles and sounds. It was in Chicago that Sneak found inspiration in underground house music, Warehouse parties and "old school" mix tapes from the early pioneers - Farley Jackmaster Funk, Ralphi Rosario, Steve Hurley and local radio station shows played on WBMX.
