Budcast episode 7 is a whole 3 hours of DJ Sneak recorded live at the 19th birthday of Subculture, held at Glasgow’s infamous Sub Club on 4th May 2013. Sneak took to the decks alongside long-standing residents and all round club heroes Harri & Domenic.
This is what the promoters had to say about the event:
With Harri & Domenic at the helm Subculture has endured like no other club night in the world and is now firmly established as the longest running weekly underground club night on the planet. It continues to go from strength to strength as Harri & Domenic refuse to relent when it comes to pushing boundaries and reworking their ever relevant take on the house music blueprint. As testament to their integrity and longevity, they continue to steer clear of trends or fads and remain true to their roots, serving up flawless selections of house and techno to the clued up masses the world over.
In true birthday style we have invited one of our favourite DJs and truest inspirations to join us, the one and only DJ Sneak. One of house music’s genuine pioneers, DJ Sneak has the passion and drive to keep house music alive and as the self-proclaimed House Gangster, he has more than helped shape the course that dance music has taken over the last 20 years. Since the early 90s his music has strongly influenced crossover acts such Daft Punk, Basement Jaxx and Armand Van Helden as well fellow underground heroes Derrick Carter, Mark Farina and Greenskeepers, taking in a whole generation of Chicago DJs that owe so much to his production style and DJ aesthetic.
Having begun his DJ’ing career in 1983, Sneak continues to be at the top of his game. His non stop beat bumpin’ sets are a one of a kind experience in the electronic music circuit and are backed up by a barrage of top quality releases on some of the most consistent and revelationary labels operating today. His signature sound of funky filtered disco-influenced house and tough, jacking beats has revolutionised and redefined house music for well over 20 years and his influence continues to be be felt today.
