Review: Roger Sanchez @ Villa

Roger Sanchez in da house! Roger Sanchez in da house!

That’s right the Brooklyn House legend was back and what an appearance he made Friday April 20th for his only Perth intimate show at Villa Nightclub and what a show it was!

After more than 20 years in the electronic world the ‘S’ Man still remains at the forefront of the house music game. The American house DJ and producer has done remixes for the likes of Daft Punk, Diana Ross and The Police  and is the CEO and founder of Stealth Records so we all knew that we were in for a immense 2 hour musical journey!

Making his way into the club just before midnight, it felt as though it may shape up to be a small turn out early in the night, but it was almost as though it was timed just right for his grand entry, as Villa Nightclub was full to the brim with houseo lovers eager to hear the great man spin the classics as well as new material to there absolute pleasure.

As he made his way through the entrance of the club to the upstairs terrace screams were heard from all angles of the room as people were overwhelmed with excitement to know the legend himself had made it! Surrounded by a entourage of private security and staff the royalty was defiantly being shown as he had an exclusive path through the crowd to the booth!

Standing in the VIP section and watching him begin his set on a 4 CDJ deck setup we all knew we were truly in for something special!

Using just one USB stick to produce one of the most sensational house sets I’ve heard in a club in years it was remarkable to know that the future of DJing can now be controlled from a single device no bigger then an eraser!

Playing tracks like Calvin Harris – Feels so Close (Benny Benassi remix) and the smash hit classic Fedde Le Grande – So Much Love the club was feeling the magical ora of the sounds of the house meister!

Dressed in a black saturn vest, bucket hat and shades his cool vibe behind the decks was surly being felt through his set! Finishing the night with his #1 smash hit Another Chance to end the epic 120 minute house extravaganza the roar of the crowd defiantly proved that once again he was the king of house!

Ace Basik ended the night with some electro house bangers to keep the crowd on the floor and moving to the end as this was a night of all things house and of all things legendary as the S Man made sure that his return to our shores since his appearance 3 years ago at Summadayze was going to be just as big as his main room sets in IBIZA and beyond!
