DJ Sneak Headlines Cielo’s 12th Anniversary Party on January 23rd

It’s time to tear it up on Friday 23rd as Cielo celebrates our 12th Anniversary in the company of DJ Sneak and longstanding resident Willie Graff, alongside local heroes Love & Logic and DC’s own Zenbi. Born in Puerto Rico, raised in Chicago and now a Canadian resident, DJ Sneak is one of house music’s true pioneers. The outspoken self-proclaimed House Gangster was part of the second wave of Chicago house DJs alongside Derrick Carter, Green Velvet and Paul Johnson, and has helped shape the course of dance music since the early-’90s; his early music influencing the likes of Daft Punk, Basement Jaxx and Armand Van Helden. With a signature sound of funky filtered disco-influenced house and tough, jacking beats, he revolutionized and redefined house music, and continues to be at the top of his game, ever reinventing himself: “I’m not the DJ Sneak who made ‘You Can’t Hide From Your Bud’ and ‘Fix My Sink’, I’m a new DJ Sneak right now, and every day I grow, every day I try to get more kids into my style of music.” You too could figure in Sneak’s plans: “I want to make music with real musicians, real producers in real studios, real vocalists with real talent. If you’re that person, get with me… let’s do this!”
