Roger Sanchez

Roger Sanchez is an American icon. There, we said it. With a career spanning two decades, Roger was at forefront of the house music revolution in the 80s and early 90s. He has outlasted many though the genre’s transformations into the multiple offshoots we know today. Through it all, his grace, passion, skill, professionalism, and of course his stellar productions, have spanned generations and brought the sound of the New York underground to dance floors around the globe. Where others have come and gone, the S-Man (an alter ego dating back to 1992) has given us both underground rhythms and chart-busting anthems.

His new single, S-Man Feat. GTO – 2 Close brings that unique mix of early 90s rhythm programming, keyboards, bass lines and warm kicks to today’s house music mix. There’s been a return to some of the classic sounds of house as of late, but given Roger’s history of developing the sounds today’s producers are copying, it’s not a stretch at all for him to put out another timeless record that will be on the USB 3.0 sticks to house music DJs around the world. He’s pursuing a deeper, darker tone and texture as S-Man, a moniker he’s bringing back that differentiates this release from his more traditional, more polished songs.

Roger is also embarking on a U.S. tour with a stop in Montreal, after a summer spent assaulting the decks in Ibiza. He’ll be mostly on the East Coast through December with a date in L.A., so catch him where you can.

Here are the dates:

  • 10/4/14 – Club Therapy – Providence, RI
  • 10/4/14 – Boutique – Hartford, CT
  • 10/10/14 – Space NYC – New York, NY
  • 10/13/14 – Sound – Los Angeles, CA (S-Man)
  • 10/24/14 – Bijou – Boston, MA (S-Man)
  • 11/22/14 – Mister East – Linden, NJ
  • 12/12/14 – Maison – Toronto, ON
  • 12/13/14 – Stereo – Montreal, QC
