DJ Sneak
One of the second wave of influential Chicago house producers and a member of the vanguard of late-'90s American house producers, DJ Sneak wasn't born in the Windy City but began listening to house soon after his family arrived from Puerto Rico in the early '80s. Because he could speak no English, Sneak gravitated to instrumental music (as well as graffiti art), and became inspired by Chicago legends such as Marshall Jefferson and DJ Pierre. Many of those early innovators had left Chicago for the East Coast by the late '80s, when Sneak was ready to start in the business; by 1992, however, Cajmere had begun a resurgence in the city's classic sound by starting up Cajual Records. Sneak aided in the revolution with a series of singles on Cajual's sister label, the harder-oriented Relief Records. Besides other productions for Strictly Rhythm, Henry St., ZYX, 83 West and Feverpitch (several of which feature Armand Van Helden on co-production, building on the Latin vibes of their heritage), DJ Sneak has also released mix compilations including 1996's Kinky Trax Collection and the following year's Buggin' Da Beats.

Founder of the independent vinyl labels Defiant (1993), Magnetic (2001) and Oomph (2002) as well as Leg (1995) for promo releases plus digital only labels Sneaks House (2008) and Sneak Tip Music (2008).

In 1995 he established his own record store called "Sneak Beats" in Toronto (Canada) which sold underground house music on Vinyl and CDs from their store and by mail order. It closed down approximately 10 years later.

Real Time Hand Motion began as a live PA in 1999 when Carson Carr aka “Busy” and Christian Thomas aka "Crux" brought together fellow Nashville percussionists to play dance music on drum pads. In the years following, RTHM morphed through members and gear including countless midi controllers, drum pads and even gaming joysticks for sculpting sounds live. During the Ableton Live boom at the turn of the millennium, RTHM was recognized for helping pioneer controllerism and found themselves lecturing at universities and music schools across the US discussing live electronic music performance and studio techniques.

In 2005, after cranking out hundreds of broken beat and house tunes, Busy and Crux hit their stride in four- on- the- floor territory with a vinyl EP debut on DJ Sneak's Oomph Recordings. This release pollinated dance floors around the world via Mark Farina, DJ Heather and countless others at the top of the House Music food chain.

Going on to produce numerous chart topping tracks for their favorite labels, RTHM's intricate sound garnered reviews declaring their records "a buy on site affair".
