Stealth Records announces its next release, this time from the label boss himself, Grammy Award winning artist/producer/DJ Roger Sanchez. Roger is one of the world’s foremost names in House music, known as a “DJ’s DJ” and a “Producer’s producer,” Sanchez’ unwavering status as a top-global master of the genre is a testament to his robust belief in the power of music to liberate people, physically and mentally.
Already in the Top 10 on the House Charts on Beatport, “Troubleman” is the first single off the house legend’s much anticipated upcoming fall LP release “Roots,” and its sound marks the official return to Sanchez’s foundation in house music. On the Roots LP release, Roger continues to stay true to the diversity of his influences, from salsa, blues and soul to disco, rock and hip-hop, all which solidified Roger’s dedication to representing this spectrum of musical styles and spurred his constant quest to redefine the boundaries of house music.
The S-Man or commonly known as Roger S has reunited with two long time friends on Troubleman, GTO, who was the voice of Roger’s classic “Turn On The Music” and house heavyweight DJ Sneak, who takes control of remix duties.
“Troubleman is the first track from my upcoming album Roots and I had so much fun collaborating again with GTO. I’m going back to my underground roots, everything from deep house to a bit of tribal and modernizing it. My new album and this track definitely has the Blues overtones laced throughout the song- it’s all about the breakdown & when the track kicks back in! The video definitely captures the feel of the track by blending an old school vibe with modern techniques- I love the feel of it.” -Roger Sanchez
The video for Troubleman, directed by Sherif Higazy officially premiered on Jay Z’s Life & Times featuring Roger Sanchez and GTO.
