House icon Roger Sanchez recently took up his position behind the decks in New Delhi, laying down over 100 minutes of flaming grooves in front of a worked up Boiler Room crowd in the Indian capital. Cutting between four decks with loops, scratching, spinbacks and every other trick in the book, Sanchez deals in nothing but the heaviest, most funky house going, bringing out plenty of the classics that earned him his legendary status.
Sanchez is well known as one of the stars of New York’s underground scene, and having been named DJ Awards’ “Best House DJ” on four separate occasions it’s fair to say that reputation isn’t limited to his hometown. A true world star, it’s no wonder his Indian audience looked bang up for it as they got to watch one of the genre’s pioneering selectors demonstrate classic house in all its glory, with tracks from the likes of Roland Clark, MK, Danny Tenaglia, Inner City and many more.
Touching down in Europe this summer, Roger Sanchez will play in Bristol alongside Amine Edge & Dance, Sam Divine and more on Saturday 1st July, with a set at Defected’s Day and Night party at Motion. Sanchez will also be presenting UNDR THE RADR at a Float Your Boat party on Thursday 10th August, doing so alongside the Ibiza boat party’s resident DJ Jason Bye.
