Roger Sanchez (born on June 1, 1967) is an American (of Dominican descent) house music DJ. He is the eldest of two sons (his younger brother is named Gabriel) born to Angela Almonte and Hugo Rene Sanchez, immigrants from the Dominican Republic. Sanchez graduated from the High School of Art and Design in New York City. He attended Pratt Institute, working towards a degree in architecture, but took his father's advice to take a break from his studies to devote his full energy to DJing and see if he could make a career of it. Eventually he found success and began to play nightclubs in New York City, and later around the world. Along with fellow New York house DJs David Morales and Danny Tenaglia, Sanchez has become well known in the European party scene, especially on the Spanish island of Ibiza. He has maintained residency on there every summer since 2000. On October 28, 2009, ''DJ Magazine'' announced the results of their annual Top 100 DJ Poll, with Ultra Records Sanchez placed at number 60. Sanchez has scored numerous hits in the European and World Charts with both his own music and the remixes he has created for an array of superstars including Kylie Minogue, Daft Punk, Madonna, The Police, No Doubt and Maroon 5. In 2003, he won his first Grammy Award for Best Remixed Recording for his remix of No Doubt's "Hella Good". He hosts a weekly terrestrial and online radio show called ''Release Yourself'', with 15 million listeners worldwide. Along with the radio show, Sanchez hosts a bi-weekly podcast, distributed internationally. In 2007 the podcast was awarded the first-ever Best Podcast Award at the International Dance Music Awards (IDMA). Roger is also the founder of his own label in 2002, Stealth Records. Yearly, Sanchez curates a series of compilation albums called ''Release Yourself'', which are known for their blend of deep house, Latin, tribal and tech sounds.Wikipedia This entry is from Wikipedia, the user-contributed encyclopedia.
