Guest Mix Info
Good friend and Milanese heartthrob, Lele Sacchi returns to the SB guestmix series this week. The man knows his way around a house 12″, having been in the game since the early ’90s, bearing witness to the evolution of what we call house music.

It was a great moment for those genres, the US original sounds melted into the exploding UK sounds.
In Milan, I was playing at legendary nights at Tunnel, Gasoline and then at Magazzini Generali which became one of Europe’s most important underground large venues. It was also a period when I started getting international recognition playing in Spain, France and UK with likeminded spirits as Ralph Lawson, DJulz, Jef K and the likes…”
