Episode 16 of DJ SNEAK’s BUDCAST comes from a 2 hour mix of jacking house beats recorded live at Barndance Festival in Dublin on April 18th 2014.
The day’s momentum grows and grows, and when Chicago’s DJ Sneak takes the main stage around 7, the crowd is putty in his hands. He delivers the standout set of the day; an hour of solid gold, four to the floor excellence from the self-professed ‘house gangster’.
There was legendary performances from the likes of Chicago’s Derrick Carter, Francois K and headliners Laurent Garnier and Jamie Jones earlier in the afternoon, with fans heading to the Riverside Museum in Glasgow to enjoy two stages of premier electronic tunes – for a second day. DJ Sneak’s rare back-to-back performance with Cajmere on stage 1 delighted the crowd as the charismatic pair played a tremendous selection of Chi-town house music.
The original house gangster’s birthday with Mark Farina and Amine Edge & DANCE was a night of epic proportions!
Essential Ibiza headed down to Insane for the 2013 closing party at Pacha, Ibiza. Making their third appearance of the summer were DJ Sneak, Derrick Carter and Mark Farina in their back-to-back-to-back formation.

“This project is all about my mood when playing in warehouses and unusual venues. This set of tracks were made to hit these type of places and events. My whole vibe on these tracks is “Strictly Underground Dirty Moody House Rhythms” lots of bass > grooves > melodies > and hard hittin’ Sneak Beats. This is music for real DJs, the ones that can walk into a party no matter where and make that place bounce!” – DJ Sneak

The one and only House Gangster DJ Sneak is back on his own DJ Sneak Classics label, with firing new remixes and a remastered version of his 1997 track ‘Back’. On general release on the 27th October with a Beatport exclusive release on 13th October, the EP features Sneak’s original, his 2014 re-touch and two remixes from Tuccillo and Acid Mondays. As an extra bonus there’s a Beats version of the original as well.
Sneak has injected ‘Back’, a percussion laden collision of vocal snippets, disco samples, phased beats and funk bass with new level of energy, stripping back the music whilst adding a layer of jacking snares. The Acid Mondays remix is a driving tribal-esque destroyer while Tuccillo takes it deeper with a rolling funky groove.
This week saw the 20th Annual Sankeys DJ Awards ceremony in Ibiza, with many dance music stars in attendance including Apollonia scooping the ‘Best Ibiza DJ’ and Duke Dumont winning the ‘Best Resident’, among many. But the biggest scoop of the night went to the original House gangster, DJ Sneak, who was presented with the prestigious ‘Biggest Lifetime Contribution Award’.
Absolutely thrilled to receive his award, Sneak comments:
“Feeling grateful to be acknowledged for all the hard work and many hours and years doing what I do for the world. Thank you all very much for the love. I’m still standing and more focused about music life and love. Blessed”
