For any DJ and bedroom producer, the ability to "hustle" is often the most underestimated, yet most important factor in determining whether they will fade out or successfully make their mark on the industry. Good hustle is the epitome of both the man and monumental career of international DJ, Roger Sanchez. From humble beginnings in New York City, diggingin dusty crates of old vinyl and spinning at house parties in Corona, Queens, to dominating thedance floors and headlining festival main-stages in everycorner of the globe.The crafting of Roger Sanchez, the DJ, started in the late 80s, where as a young man he was enticed by the explosion of Hip-Hop that was taking over thecity. Embracing the culture as a b-boy and graffiti artist, he would hit partieson the Bronx River, and before long, his friends had him trying his hand on the wheels of steel. In a time and place where Hip-Hop, House Music, and "turntablism" all collided in a perfect storm of creativity, opportunity, and sick beats, Roger seized hismoment and began to build his empire on vinyl and slip mats, starting with a few singles and expanding into a massive collection of over two thousand original productions and remixes.Releasing music under a multitude of monikers, including the S-Man, Roger S, The Nu-Solution, Underground Solution, DV8, Ego Trip, El Mariachi, The Funkjunkeez, Tribal Infusion, Twilight, and Transatlantic Soul. Roger has been able to maintain the essenceof his sound while still using each alias as a tool to expand on various fresh and experimental sounds, allowing him to remain fluid and cutting edge across decades.So many successful endeavours would have never been possible without a rock solid work ethic, something that Roger prides himself on. From the very beginning, he was a dedicated crate digger, searching for obscure samples and breakbeats in influential NYC record stores like Rock & Soul and Vinylmania. His infallible work ethic, paired with the firm foundation of art and culture that he gained from the Pratt Institute's School of Architecture took control of the wheel as his passion for music expanded, driving him to start hustling mixtapes on the sidewalks of Broadway in order to finance his earliest gigs. With the encouragement of his father, an engineer, Roger abandoned his plans for a career in architecture and decided to devote all his efforts to his music.His first 12-inch, "Dreamworld" came out on the Outer Limits imprint in 1990 under the name Egotrip, and was the turning point that shifted his focus from simply playing music to producing. Shortly after, he released "Luv Dancin" for Gladys Pizarro, under the name Underground Solution on the iconic Strictly Rhythm label. It was this release which led to his first tour. Roger hasn't stoppedsince, using his decades of experience to build enticing remixes for a wide range of artists including Michael Jackson, The Police, Diana Ross, Jamiroquai, Maroon 5, and No Doubt, for which he won a Grammy in 2003for Best Remixed Recording forthe song "Hella Good".Always motivated by that innovative spirit, Roger was an early pioneer of podcasting and was awarded the first-ever Best Podcast Award at the International Dance Music Awards in 2007. He currently hosts Release Yourself, a weekly terrestrial and online radio show and podcast that features not only his own productions but also features up and coming tracks and artists. It attracts over 20 million listeners around the world and is broadcast inover thirty markets on every continent, and if that weren't enough, he creates many of his podcasts and mixes from the road.Roger has captained a seriesof releases onlabelssuch influential labels as Strictly Rhythm, One Records, and Defected over the years. He further extends his influence by helping release the music of new artists on his labels Stealth and UNDR THE RADR and through his own personally built production studios.His latest label, UNDR THE RADR, launched in 2014 with his own ‘Dangerous Thoughts' track, also saw the collaboration ‘Drop The Needle'with Man Without AClue &Kevin Knapp. Collaborationwith Huxley (‘The Calling') and Tough Love (‘In The Name of Love') followed suit, continuing the theme of exploring new ground that was shown with his ‘Amour' single for Riva Starr's Snatch label. In addition to a barrage of dark, dirty house music, UNDR THE RADR also brought the revival of his infamous S-Man alias,focusing on dark and raw club music.Alongside UNDR THE RADR he alsorelaunched his Stealth Recordings labelin 2014and releasedthehit, ‘Remember Me' (feat Stealth) as Roger Sanchez, which exploded onto the scene as Pete Tong's Essential New Tune and continued into a global radio and club hit, picking uppublishingdeals with Ministry of Sound -Australia, Ego -Italy, We Play -Germany, Blanco Y Negro –Spain, and beyond.He has followed up the album release with a whirlwind tour of shows that are have taken him to dance floors in the far corners of the world and allowing him to return to his second home, the White Isle. Having prominent residencies in Ibiza since 2000, Roger took a break from the island in 2015 and has returned in full force in 2016, beginning with the Space Opening Fiesta and continuing throughout the summer with Creamfields Ibiza and monthly Glitterbox appearancesat Space, as well as shows at veteran clubs, Pacha and Amnesia. 2016 has also brought him back to the festival stage with numerous summer festivals appearances from London, to Croatia, to headlining the NYC Downlow stage at the iconic,Glastonbury Festival. In 2018, Roger continued to rise as he established his UNDR THE RADR club residencies in 1-800 Lucky inMiami, Schimanski in New York and La Suite in Marbella. Expandinghis involvement with Glitterbox and Defected in Ibiza, UK, Croatia and across Europe. He recently reformedthe S-Men (alongside DJ Sneak and Junior Sanchez) for their release "Who We Are" on Defected.Roger is an artist who is always moving forward, re-defining house music. Despite his success, he remains humble, real, and true to hisroots. The S-Man sums it up perfectly when he states: "I'm always moving forward, but neverlosing sight of where I've been."
Dj Ralph détient sans nul doute l’un des plus beaux palmarès de la scène DJ française. Véritable pionnier de la scène techno française, il a commencé à promouvoir les musiques électroniques dès 1991 via son agence Tekmics. Il côtoie ainsi à l’époque les figures de proue de la scène techno, de Laurent Garnier à Richie Hawtin en passant par Jeff Mills et Sven Väth. Très impliqué dans le développement de jeunes artistes, il est le premier à croire au potentiel du duo Miss Kittin & The Hacker, un an avant de sortir son premier maxi ‘Why Not’ en 1997. Avec le temps, DJ Ralph franchit les barrières musicales et élargit son spectre musical, notamment via sa rencontre clé avec Joachim Garraud au début des années 2000. Par la suite, sa carrière personnelle va prendre une ampleur internationale, avec à la clé une signature sur le label suédois Joia en 2009. Cette affiliation suédoise fait suite à sa signature avec le jeune label F**k Me I’m Famous de David Guetta, sur lequel il est l’un des premiers à poser son nom. Derrière son slogan «Electro Addict», le Français fédère alors une génération de clubbers de plus en plus large en signant plusieurs collaborations avec Avicii ... Chaque soirée Electro Addict Party témoigne d’une effervescence et d’une énergie qui font de DJ Ralph l’un des DJ’s les plus appréciés à la fois des clubbers et des professionnels de la nuit. Régulièrement invité sur la scène de grands événements, comme le festival Inox ou les X Games à Tignes, DJ Ralph se produit depuis des années aux quatre coins du globe, d’Ibiza à Kazantip en passant par Miami et Nouméa. Il figure parmi les DJ’s français les plus côtés du côté de l’Asie et du Pacifique. Malgré son agenda DJ bien rempli, il continue de développer son label Electro Addict Records et prépare la sortie de son 2ème album solo, édité par Joachim Garraud... Son dernier single " I am Ready " vient de sortir sur le label qui a vu naitre la Swedish House Mafia "Joia Records”.
