On May 6, a special Boiler Room broadcast featured two dance music legends: Todd Terry, who has been mixing and remixing dance music since the 1980s, and DJ Sneak, the original house gangster himself.

Episode 6 of the Vinylcast was recorded in 2001 and comes from the legendary LA ‘How Sweet It Is’ raves, huge productions put on by a company called B3. These parties (How Sweet It Is & Juju Beats were the biggest) went on back in the late 90’s early 2000 – the original Daisy Carnivals!

DJ Sneak on Vinylcast 03: “Green Bush is the first edition to a series of mix sessions that I made when I first moved to Canada in the late 90’s. The home mixes often came at the weirdest times, usually while jetlaged and always while smoking some of the best weed that Canada had to offer. The term Green Bush is in reference to the plants that I would usually smoke while mixing. These sets where often recorded on cassette, all mixed with wax so they sound very analogue. At the time that I was mixing this it was a great time in House music, sounds were fresh and I often played unreleased promos that I got shipped to my home in Toronto. I’ve had many people ask me about traxx from this series. This is a priceless collection that I am going to re-release during this podcast series and we start with the very first mix of them all, Green Bush 1.”
DJ Sneak on Vinylcast 02: “Sunday Schoolin is a homemade mix recorded at home when I first moved to Toronto, this was back in the late 90’s, not sure of the exact year but I know it was pre-2000. Cold Canadian winters made it easy to stay in and enjoy the sweet sounds of vinyl.”
As a DJ, well, he’s one of the very best, and so it’s an honour to have DJ Sneak provide the special Christmas edition of Cadenza’s Source to Cycle podcast featuring 2 mixes … enjoy!!
