Wickedy Sounds

One of my heroes from my house days: DJ Sneak. With his trademark chunky Chicago jackin beats and long filter sweeps Sneak created a sound all of his own, and his special hypnotic brand of house music trancended the boundaries of the Chicago scene and crossed over on to both the San Francisco and New York dancefloors. This is one of my favourite Sneak jams, the B-side to 'Smokey Hill Street' released on his own Magnetic label in 2001. Analog stabs drive along a crispy Chi-town beat, paving the way for the loopy bassline, all churned through the unmistakeable band-pass sweeps. It's quite fast at 130bpm, and I'd definitely play it out much slower, but still - sounds wickedy.
