DJ Sneak

House Chicago House deep house electronic techno

In 1983, Carlos Sosa aka DJ Sneak, moved to the city of Chicago from the island of Puerto Rico, where his early musical experiences and Influences were rooted in salsa, merengue and famous Latin orchestras. Chicago, like Puerto Rico, is a city rich with musical styles and sounds.

It was in Chicago that Sneak found inspiration in underground house music, Warehouse parties and "old school" mix tapes from the early pioneers - Farley Jackmaster Funk, Ralphi Rosario, Steve Hurley and local radio station shows played on WBMX. Sneak earned his nickname rocking designs in the graffiti tagging days and began working at retail stores as an airbrush artist, not long after he cultured the music industry world and began recording his first releases.

While at retail stores Sneak developed his DJing skills around the city working regular mobile DJ jobs and local nightclubs. In an already saturated DJ pool, Sneak focused on music production and started an independent label - Defiant Records. In 1992, using the fundamental studio pieces, Sneak began recording tracks with an unusual new style. In 1994, while still working at local store Gramophone Records sneak met Cajmere (Green Velvet) owner of Cajual and Relief Records.

Cajmere released some of Sneak's pivotal tracks and helped bring international recognition, with it, a global DJing career.In 1995, Sneak's new sound revolutionized house music with inspirational sounds and rhythms never heard. The disco filtered house grooves became Sneak's signature sound. Innovator to many, Sneak's love for music spawned current talents such as Daft Punk, Basement Jaxx & Armand Van Helden.

In 1996, DJ Sneak's" You Can't Hide From Your Bud" on Derrick Carter's Classic Recordings turn out to be something of a masterpiece, setting a blueprint for many subsequent 'filtered disco' tracks and preceding the wave of funky, disco-influenced house that would prove the massive popularity of Chicago underground music. From 1996 through the present day DJ Sneak is also a veteran on the remix world, with highly expected remixes that drive dance floors across the globe to ecstatic conditions by means of his intense beats and rhythms. After years of development, DJ Sneak is a familiar name across the world's club circuit rocking down the best venues and events.
