he S-Man, better known as Roger Sanchez, takes control on the last night of an insane party-marathon which is the Amsterdam Dance Event. Venue of choice is Escape, one of the oldest clubs in Amsterdam and he keeps the party going till the morning hours...
The sun sets on a glorious 'Day at the Park' in Amsterdam as Roger Sanchez takes the crowd higher and higher. Deck rocking mix skills, pumping, uplifting beats, and pandemonium in the park after the jump...
In Roger Sanchez’s eyes, music is cyclical. It’s about “drawing influences from the past and re-imagining it in a completely different way.” Hence why his forthcoming album will be called Roots.
Sanchez’s musical roots go back to the mid ‘80s, when the then-teenage breakdancer started DJing, and became fascinated with the new house music making its way to his hometown of New York from Chicago.
“At that time, the dominant forms of dance music in New York were freestyle and hip-hop, and house was almost the return of disco,” he says. “It was stripped down and four-to-the-floor, but there was something really magical about it, and it drew me in.”
