Carlos Sosa a.k.a. Dj Sneak is the main representative of Puerto Rico sound, he has travelled around many years, but he has still Latin roots. He moved to Chicago from his isle of birth, in this American city he could discover and experience with underground house music, all these Warehouse parties was his inspiration, after this learning he was developing his skills working in mobile sets and local nightclubs in Chicago, with his work in clubs he was developing his own label, Defiant Records.
In 1992 he started to release his own music, a very different sound more than 20 years ago, something different mixed with Latin notes, two years later he knew Cajmere and, with his collaboration, he released some of his classic tracks.
1995 was his year, Dj Sneak revolutionized house music, new rhythms and sounds that have inspired to Daft Punk, Basement Jaxx or Armand van Helden, in 1996 “ You can’t hide from your bud” sound around the world and he becomes a star, this funky influence in electronic tracks is now a proper music style, he was the pioneer.
He is a veteran in this world, but we are still waiting for works with that Latin taste, Dj Sneak has demonstrated many times that he is more than a DJ, he is a reference for us.
Every year he visits us here in Ibiza, but he is a classic in British clubs like Ministry of Sound, Manumission or Miss Moneypenny’s.
He was, year after year, in all the lists with the most influencer DJ’s for many decades, he had the key, and now everybody loves the Chicago sound mixed with Caribbean style, it’s just impossible to forget.
If you want to visit us in Ibiza come to “Float Your Boat” and be part of a session of this genius, DJ Sneak will be here this summer.
