2010 has been a year of new horizons for Sanchez: a complete overhaul of his management team, a revolutionary set-up switch to CDJ-2000s ("it's really changed the way I play, so now I'm doing a lot more on-the-spot remixing") and a host of new high-profile collaborations with the likes of Afrika Bambaataa, Maroon 5, Natalia Kills, and
Danny from McFly, obviously.
The Release Yourself Ibiza club night at Amnesia (after moving from Pacha late last year) also celebrates ten slick, successful years, signalling an island resurgence for Sanchez. "We're really seeing Ibiza come back this season," he says. Live shows (featuring numerous spins of his chunky, B-52s-sampling single '2Gether') have been a staple part of the last 12 months, be they his own mammoth Release Yourself sets or performances from his Stealth label roster. "This summer we did three Stealth beach parties at La Plage which were very, very sexy. That was one of my high points of the year," he purrs.
And what of the future for a DJ with as big a sense of ambition as Sanchez? "I'm really looking forward to 2011. I've got a lot of big things coming with a lot of major artists."
We wouldn't expect anything less.
