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

Ministry of Sound welcome back DJ Sneak and revisits some the producer’s most important releases.
DJ Sneak – “Back”
A percussion-laden collision of vocal snippets, disco samples, phased beats and funk bass. Sneak added new levels of energy by stripping back the music whilsadding a layer of jacking snares. Vintage Sneak doing what he does best.
DJ Sneak & Murk – “To The Bassline” Feat. Dreadlion & Leslie Cartaya
Released on Exploited in 2014, this is DJ Sneak’s first release on the label. “To The Bassline” is a collaboration with Murk (Oscar G and Ralph Falcon) and features the unmistakable rolling house beat of DJ Sneak in unison with Leslie Cartaya’s sultry vocals.
Roger Sanchez feat. GTO – “Troubleman” (DJ Sneak Remix)
Released on Stealth Records, This one sees Sneak on remix duties for fellow house pioneer Roger Sanchez and once again proves Sneak’s ability to completelytransform vocals and match them seamlessly with his G-House aesthetic.
Riva Starr & DJ Sneak – “In Da House Tonight”
The combination of UK based producer Riva Starr and DJ Sneak proved to be yet another successful one. This stomper,released just over a year ago on Snatch records has been tearing up dancefloors ever since, being supported by a range of artists from David Guetta to Shadow Child.
Duke Dumont – “Street Walker” (DJ Sneak Remix)
Rising star Duke Dumont was lucky enough to receive a remix from DJ Sneak as part of the Turbo Miami Lifestyle Compilation. Featuring repetitive vocal samples and hard hitting kicks this instantly became another house banger from Mr. Sneak.
DJ Sneak – “You Can’t Hide From Your Bud”
Released way back in 1997, “You Can’t Hide From Your Bud” was one of Sneak’s early bangers. Featuring a slightly more stripped back sound and garagey percussion in the intro, this groove quickly develops into a disco house anthem. Definitely one for all the original house purists out there.
Armand Van Helden – “Psychic Bounty Killaz Pt.2″ ft. DJ Sneak
This is quite simply a collaboration of two of dance music’s biggest mavericks. Armand Van Helden’s trancey power chords combined with Sneak’s vocal sampling, both laid over a stonking house beat is certainly not one to be missed. A pretty mad name for a tune as well, so respect for that.
DJ Sneak – “Marijuana”
This certainly reinforces Sneak’s reputation as a Gangster of the House world. Featuring samples talking about cocaine smuggling and the smoking of marijuana, laid over smooth lounge piano chords and 4X4 kicks, this has all the ingredients of a Sneak classic.
The 2 Bears – “Work it Out” (DJ Sneak Remix)
Another remix by Sneak here, taken from Doorly’s mix compilation for Southern Fried Recordings. Taking UK duo, The 2 Bears, unmistakable nodder, Sneak lays down a classic remix worthy of smashing any dance to pieces.
