Junior Sanchez Talks About Using Samples Creatively
After dropping the groove-laden stomper Music So Special with LP Giobbi on remix duties, Junior Sanchez returns to Undisputed Music with ‘Freedom’. With Charlie Vox on vocals and a power-house, funky-bassline paired with uplifting trumpets – this track is sure to set any dancefloor alight.
At age 11 named Junior resorted to using his sibling’s hand-me-down records and combining two of his parents’ old stereo systems to create a makeshift DJ rig. By age 15, he was DJing at some of the hottest underground clubs in NYC and the world. Continually shaking up the world of house music with his eclectic and unpredictable palette of sounds since 1994, Junior Sanchez is one of dance music’s most prolific artists.
Born and raised in New Jersey, Junior first cut his teeth at some of the hottest clubs in NYC and it was here that he perfected his craft to become one of the most in-demand DJs in the music industry. Junior’s catalogue is overwhelmingly impressive, with releases on some of dance music’s most established labels including Defected, Relief, Classic Music Co, Circus, Strictly Rhythm, Nervous and Snatch Records to name a few. Add to that an impressive list of production remix credits for artists including Madonna, Gorillaz, Jamiroquai, Chrvches, Azealia Banks, Cassius, Ariana Grande and Teyana Taylor.
He joined me on Twitch recently to chat about music, using samples creatively, the Process of starting producing a record & history of producing in the early days, Process of signing records to his labels & the current releases and much more.
