With his three track ‘Hustler Stomp’ release currently blazing hot on the I’m A House Gangster label, Sidney Charles drops by with an equally hot mix for the Gangstercast. The mix features 80 minutes of Sidney’s trademark jacking, stomping and booty shaking house, just the way we love it at HG HQ.
Born as Sidney Charles Hurricane Vieljans in Hamburg, Germany, Sidney’s introduction to music was through the magic of two 1210s spinning Hip Hop, Soul, Funk, Breakbeat and Turntablism, before transitioning to the faster BPMs of House and Techno and the culture which accompanied dance music. Sidney is clear to state that he is not a musician, nor a percussionist, but a collector. A collector of culture and experiences.
Speaking of the I’m A House Gangster sound, Sidney comments, “It’s pumping, raw house, mainly influenced by funk and hip hop orientated samples. The sound represents a certain state of authenticity and realness. As the House Gangster style points out, House Music is not only music, its a way of thinking, acting and living. The attitude towards house music is the most important thing, that stands behind the whole House Gangster sound.”
