Roger Sanchez - Renaissance 3D

Posted By: Simon Jones on 19 December

After a strong showing in 2008 with new albums from John Digweed, Satoshi Tomiie and Steve Lawler to name but a few, Renaissance are set to kick off 2009 with the latest in the ´3D´ compilation series. Previous installments have seen such artists as Faithless and Tom Middleton present a comprehensive insight into not only their studios, but their home listening favourites and influences, and the latest volume will see the S-Man himself, Roger Sanchez take the helm.

The legendary Master of House brings his unique musical vision to present another exciting chapter in the 3D series

Whether its hosting and playing legendary 7/8 hour sets at his Release Yourself parties in Pacha, Ibiza and around the world; compiling and mixing an annual compilation of the same name, or producing as himself or the S-Man, theres no question Roger Sanchez is one of house musics most revered ambassadors.

Aside from running his own label (Stealth), supporting house from the ground-roots up, Roger has also found time to remix some of the worlds best artists such as Madonna, Micheal Jackson, Jamiroquai, Alicia Keys, Daft Punk and many, many more Put simply, the S-Man was tailor-made for 3D!

And he doesnt disappoint

"This is the first compilation outside of my own Release Yourself series I´ve done in a long time, and I was excited by the opportunity to do something different, as presented by the Renaissance 3D mix. I feel this captures the essence of the many different vibes I have, be it on the dancefloor, in the studio or at home. Roger Sanchez

We first catch-up with Roger in the club for a current snapshot of his live club sets, drawing on friends and producers such as India, D.O.N.S., Outwork, Wally Lopez, Hatiras and Richard Grey. The result is archetypal Sanchez, a heady mix of soul, funk and electro.

As we follow him to the studio, Roger presents his seminal remix of the legend that was Barry White alongside key favourites such as Carl Kennedy, Artificial Funk and A Tribe Called Es. The rest of the disc accurately portrays his incredibly prolific studio output, fittingly spear-headed by his crossover smash Another Chance.

Finally, Roger takes us home for an eclectic musical travelogue that begins on the tranquil shores of Ibiza with Afterlifes Clear Blue Sky; jumps across Europe to enjoy the cream of Britains electronic artists, Massive Attack and Finlay Quaye and, later, looks a little closer to his Manhatten home by way of Black Science Orchestras New Jersey Deep. He adopts some Gallic charm via Daft Punk before winding things-up in true festival mosh-pit style with the Klaxons seminal Not Over cover.

Renaissance 3D: Roger Sanchez is out 26th January 2009 in the UK and early Feb through the rest of the world.
