‘Strictly Roger Sanchez’ Retrospective Out in April

Strictly Roger Sanchez

Internationally lauded New York City house music institution Roger Sanchez might have the Midas touch, but he comes from humble beginnings. Hailing from the streets of Queens, NY, he’s worked diligently to raise his profile from aspiring DJ/producer in the late ’80s to touring the world, running his own label and holding down residencies in Ibiza. A selection of Sanchez’s most important work is the subject of a well-curated retrospective, Strictly Roger Sanchez, out on April 22.

Divided into three sections — Remixes, Productions, The Strictly Years — the 31-track compendium includes his seminal cover of Steve Wonder’s “Another Star” fronted by Kathy Sledge, ‘Luv Dancin’’” cut under his Underground Solution alias and his timeless remix of Aly-us’ classic anthem “Follow Me.”

The globetrotting Sanchez touches down in Miami to play Nervous’ annual pool party on March 18. Though he’s always one to include the freshest tracks in his sets, odds are good he’ll manage to sneak in a classic or two from the list below strictly for the ‘heads.
