Prolific Junior Sanchez returns to D4 D4NCE alongside MIKE DEAN with ‘Weekend Vibes’, the next single from his upcoming LP, featuring Lee Wilson.

A celebrated US producer, remixer, and label executive, Junior Sanchez first landed on the burgeoning London dance label in March of 2024 with ‘So Hype,’ featuring Grammy Award-winning songstress Mýa. The legendary collaboration set the tone for Sanchez’s future output on the label, with huge names uniting to create sleek house music, as he has done throughout his illustrious career, from co-founding Da Mongoloids collective with the likes of Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk, A-Trak, Basement Jaxx, and Armand Van Helden to recently launching his Freqazoids project with UK producer Dance System.

Sanchez is joined on the track by MIKE DEAN, a celebrated record producer who is no stranger to working with A-list artists, including The Weeknd, Beyoncé, Kanye West, Kid Cudi, Jay-Z, Drake, Lana Del Rey and Madonna.

‘Weekend Vibes’ shows the two experts at work, with new in-demand vocalist and songwriter Lee Wilson adding a throwback feel to the modern and energetic future dance hit.

‘Weekend Vibes’ is available May 24 on D4 D4NCE

Junior Sanchez Bio

As one of the world’s most respected and innovative DJs, Junior Sanchez has remained at the forefront of house music since the ‘90s. But throughout his three-decade-long career, Sanchez has continued to challenge himself—becoming a versatile producer, a hands-on label executive, and an inspiring entrepreneur. Above all, Sanchez’s enthusiasm for his craft and his passion to share it with others is present in all his endeavors. Although Sanchez’s story begins in the most ordinary of places—suburban New Jersey—his rise to fame was anything but. The youngest of six, Sanchez was raised on his family’s diverse record collection. While his Brazilian mother enjoyed a steady dose of Latin music, his siblings each had their own favorites: from ELO and Fleetwood Mac to Slick Rick and The Smiths. Sanchez embraced it all. But when he discovered house music—a relatively young genre that sprung from the ashes of disco—it resonated with him on a new level.
