Junior Sanchez


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 2015 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 sounds are set to pave new pathways inside the world of
dance music and beyond. In addition to producing and touring constantly, Junior’s own multimedia
company Brobot (distributed by SIZE Records) has just celebrated it's 1st birthday. Their
“Year-One Compilation” is a major milestone featuring releases from Todd Terry, Felix Da
Housecat, DL, Chocolate Puma, and Harry Romero, among others has garnered strong support
in the industry. The high level of artistic integrity BROBOT maintains is primary to why the label has
enjoyed countless BBC Radio 1 looks, press coverage, 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.
