How to be a House Gangster: 5 Lessons From DJ Sneak


Beats, beaches, booties! DJ Sneak and the I'm A House Gangster crew show how it's done in the killer first installment of their brand new mini-series. Shot over one week in Ibiza, the video captures Sneak in his natural environment. The series follows DJ Sneak from behind the decks at Ushuaia with UK don Pete Tong, crushing it at the Hard Rock Hotel with Snoop Dogg, cruising in the legendary low-rider and manning the grill with those renowned BBQ skills.

The self-titled Original House Gangster is very much a pioneer in the underground, a center piece in Chicago's second wave of iconic spinners. His label I'm A House Gangster is a more recent project yet it has firmly established itself as a hotpot for cutting-edge underground bombs with the likes of Ramon Tapia and Jesse Perez complimenting the main man with pure fire releases.

1. Have you got the beats?

Last but certainly not least comes the Music, the vital ingredient for any true Gangster of House Music. You may have the look but you gotta back it up with solid cuts!
