Sankeys closing part two sees another stack of awesome talent gathered for our entertainment and another mystery guest to ponder over… The musical menu is looking particularly healthy as Todd Terry plays a special acid set in the Acid House, Sneak and Cajmere return as do Solomun and H.O.S.H. and Miguel Campbell makes another welcome addition, while there is a Wolf & lamb experience in Spektrum and a special guest in the Basement.
Sneak and Mark Farina took to the decks in Vancouver back in May as part of the Nordic Trax label’s 15th Anniversary celebrations. Scene In The Dark have a great review, which we’ve re-blogged here in it’s entirety alongside some videos, photos and a live recording!
DJ Sneak has managed to achieve an EP with dizzying effects. After listening you find yourself breathing a huge sigh of contentment, and then go on to listen again and again. Simply breathtaking.
It wasn’t long however till the main room really took off and it could have only meant one thing; Sneak had arrived, was on stage and was dropping his first tune of the night – a jacking remix of the 90s classic, ‘I’ve Got The Power’. As Sneak and Doc worked their way through a memorable six hour, back-to-back, 4 deck set, they took in everything from the classic US sound to darker, deeper, tribal records. Just a few that made it into my recollection of the night include; Black Science Orchestra’s ‘NewJersey Deep’, Flashmob’s ‘Brick House’ and a bouncing remix of MGMT’s ‘Electric Feel’ – all met with a plethora of fist pumps and woops from the crowd.
August 17th 2012. Mark the date in your diary to get your hands on the ultimate collection of Sneak tracks released on Robsoul Recordings. Phil Weeks’ Parisian house imprint are releasing a monster 6 album series which also features DJ W!LD, Chris Carrier, Joss Moog, Fries & Bridges and Phil Weeks himself, alongside DJ Sneak. Sneak’s installment will be the second in the series and includes 9 tracks.
