From his days as a seventeen-year-old A&R man for Rufftrax to meeting a young Armand van Helden in 1992 and forming the house music collective the Mongoloids to working with Felix da Housecat on the legendary Kittenz & The Glitz album to the launch of his own Brobot label, Junior has been a part of some of dance music’s finest moments. Speaking of fine moments in music, Junior put together an exclusive mix for us a little while back, you can download it for free here.
To give fans a proper look into what Junior Sanchez means to dance music Steve Angello’s Size Records has has put together a special video biography on the man. This is Junior Sanchez, up front and honest...the real deal as he sits down with Josh Madden and candidly reflects on the past and where things are going.
"The hardest part of my early career as a kid was the balance between wanting to live a creative life, a life of the night, and still go to school, still be a son and have parents that automatically thought what you were doing is demonic or crazy. I would dye my hair, go to the Limelight, which was in church, and to my mom that was raised in a convent, she was like what are you doing? She thought I was going to Limelight to DJ and it was a cult."
In addition to the above video, Juniors' Brobot Records has formed a partnership with Steve Angello and Size Records.
“The vision behind Brobot Records is a purely art driven project where if I love it, I’ll release it,” Junior says. “I want to empower and showcase fresh new talent and release new and more experimental music from my peers while also providing a home to release my own material. I feel like this has gone full circle for me since my cube recordings days. Steve Angello told me that Cube was a source of great inspiration for him to launch Size Records, so it makes sense to form a label partnership between Size and Brobot. I wouldn't have it any other way. It's two like minded individuals creating something special!”
