We could write reams and reams about the globe trotting antics of Roger Sanchez, but do we really need to? Thursday 23rd and Secret Soul Sessions at Cielo should be reason enough to attend. Generally regarded as one of the dance world’s leading DJs, an acclaimed artist, producer, remixer and label mogul, who’s Stealth imprint is widely recognized by Beatport as being one of their top sellers year-after-year. Having started life on the streets of Queens break dancing and making mix tapes, his own creative material eventual found an outlet with the likes of Strictly Rhythm, and later his own Narcotic and R*Senal labels. While as a remixer, at his peak (in the ‘90s) he was an ever present in the dance charts with production work for mainstream artists of the caliber of Michael and Janet Jackson, Soul II Soul, and Diana Ross. In 2003 his reworking of No Doubt’s ‘Hella Good’ bagged Sanchez a well-earned Grammy Award as the year’s Best Remix. Nuff said we think!
