With the Choice series being compiled by the biggest and best DJs and producers of our time - it was long overdue that an icon like Roger Sanchez should be persuaded to share his classics with us. Here the S man has created a double CD filled with funk, jazz, italo disco, salsa, electro, deep and twisted house and more. It showcases seminal tunes and highlights gems that have influenced countless tracks and artists in the years that followed their release.

Says Roger: “I feel honoured to have been asked and it has been a pleasure putting it together. I am at a point now that I can look back on how the dance scene has grown and put the development of my career right next to it. It's nice to go back and underline what started it all. “

With no fewer than 6 exclusive re-edits by Roger, it makes for a very distinguished twelfth release in this stellar series. CD1 is a lounging, sprawling mix filled with 1970s warmth – featuring the underground disco vibe of Two Man Sounds ‘Que Tal America’ and Lafayette Afro Rock ‘Darkest Light’ which is undoubtedly funk in its best form. CD2 includes the acid anthem ‘Night Moves’ by Rikster and the gritty synth techno quality of Steve’ Poindexter’s ‘Computer Madness’.
