Roger Sanchez is jetting into town... and you could see him play for FREE!
The superstar DJ’s best known for his UK number one hit Another Chance and prestigious residencies at the likes of Pacha and Space in Ibiza – and now he’s appearing at Q43’s hot club night Than-Q!
Sanchez honed his craft in late Eighties New York, enticed by the exciting early days of hip-hop. Attending parties by the Bronx River as a breakdancer and graffiti artist, he was introduced to the wheels of steel, and soon his creativity behind the decks flourished from a few singles into an ambitious catalogue of more than 2,000 original productions.
He’s remixed tracks for Michael Jackson, Jamiroquai, Maroon 5 and No Doubt – he won a Grammy Award in 2003 for Best Remixed Recording with the song Hella Good – and now, under the moniker ‘The S-Man’, he’s poised to push musical boundaries once more.
“The S-Man was my alter ego for when I wanted to do stuff that was just dark, dirty, straight dance floor with no regard for radio or anything like that,” he said. “Just the raw expression of what I feel works for me on the dance floor.
“I really get the chance to open up and try different sounds. I think the S-Man brings back a lot of what I learned in the early years of my production… the really straight back-to-the-club roots of it. It’s taking on the elements of deepness, making it dirty again, adding elements of hip-hop, and just bringing it all to bear.”
Don’t miss the chance to hear him live!
