DJ Sneak is an important part of Chicago’s second wave of house music. Do you remember “You Can’t Hide From Your Bud?” That song basically laid the groundwork for the unrelenting wave of French filter-house that came out afterwards. While Paul Johnson’s “Get Get Down” was also instrumental, Sneak ushered in the era of Armand Van Helden and Daft Punk that dominated the mid-to-late-nineties sound. Although he now lives in Toronto, he continues to play internationally to parties brimming with the cool and the beautiful. Don’t take his Chicago appearance for granted! (Jarrett Spiegel)
