Growing up in the unassuming suburb of Belleville New Jersey, an 11-year-old boy named Junior Sanchez resorted to using hand-me-down records and two of his parents’ old stereo
systems to create a makeshift DJ rig. By age 15, this prodigy was already DJing at some of the hottest underground clubs in NYC and perfecting his craft as a producer. Junior’s intense
passion for music and unrelenting work ethic has allowed the New Jersey native to transform himself from his humble beginnings into one of the most innovative and in-demand
DJ/Producers in the industry. Junior Sanchez’s ever-evolving and forward-thinking style has attracted positive attention from artists spanning all genres. Over the course of his career,
Junior has produced and remixed material for Madonna, Shakira, Katy Perry, Good Charlotte, CHVRCHES, Placebo, The Bravery, Daft Punk, Gorillaz, Blaqk Audio, Hot Hot Heat, Roisin
Murphy, Felix Da Housecat, The Faint, New Order, Emiliana Torrini, Jamiroquai, Giorgio Moroder, Moving Units, Les Rhythmes Digitales, and countless others. When he is not
producing for some of the biggest artists in the industry, Junior focuses on his own massive tracks, recently releasing the game-changing “Salt” and “Without You” featuring the legendary CeCe Peniston.
As a DJ, he has performed internationally in clubs and festivals throughout the United States, Asia, Australia, and Europe and currently holds residencies in the USA and Ibiza. And when it comes to his career, Junior isn’t one for slowing down, with 2014 being no exception. The renowned DJ/producer recently finished working on new material with the likes of Chocolate Puma, Todd Terry, and Doorly, and will be debuting his newest alias IMIURU (Pronounced: I Am I, You Are You) with his introductory single coming out early 2015 on Jesse Rose’s Label, Play It Down. These new sounds are set to pave new pathways inside the world of dance music. In addition to producing and touring constantly, Junior’s own multimedia company Brobot (distributed by SIZE Records) is soon to turn 1 year old. Their forthcoming “Year-One Compilation” is a major milestone featuring releases from Todd Terry, Felix Da Housecat, DL, Chocolate Puma, and Harry Romero, among others. The high level of artistic integrity BROBOT maintains is primarily why the label has enjoyed countless BBC Radio 1 looks, and not forgetting to mention the undeniable heavy support from fellow djs on the club/radio circuit. Junior Sanchez has undoubtedly carved a place for himself in this cutthroat industry, but you can expect even bigger and better things from this creative juggernaut in the near future.
