Carlos Sanchez began his career as a DJ in New Orleans in 1997 where he was active in the local rave scene. His love of the underground parties and DJ culture sparked him to begin buying records and learning to mix on his own. Within a year he landed his first DJ residency, which was soon followed by other residencies and weekly radio shows. Before he knew it, Carlos was booking high-profile gigs all over town, including the Moonshine Over America Tour.
Carlos' momentum didn't slow down when he moved to Las Vegas in 1999, where he went on to hold residencies at posh nightclubs such as Drai's, Club Sponge, Sevilla and Tabu, just to name a few. For the past 10 years he's been holding it down at the legendary Downtown Cocktail Room where he showcases his unique brand of deep house music at his weekly Friday Night Social events.
His style is what has set him apart from the droves of commercial, jukebox-style DJs that infest Vegas today. Carlos' music is directly influenced by growing up in New Orleans, and his style reflects his love of blending jazz, funk, latin and soul. New Orleans is—if nothing else—a melting pot of African, French and Spanish cultures, and it certainly played a key role in making Carlos Sanchez the DJ he is today.
One third of the Las Vegas DJ collective known as Unfiltered Soul, Doug Wilcox has some serious DJ chops, thanks to 30 years in the game. His experience and breadth of music knowledge is deep and far-reaching—the kind of resume that would make most DJs jealous.
Also a founding member of Vegas' Unfiltered Soul, Rob Alahn has been holding it down in the Las Vegas underground scene with his unique flavor of soulful, sultry deep house.
Along with the rest of the Unfiltered Soul crew, Rob has been holding down one of the longest-running underground house music residencies in Las Vegas at the Downtown Cocktail Room for the past ten years. Their weekly sessions are broadcast live online, and they are constantly pushing the boundaries of streaming technology and raising their game for fans all over the world.
Unfiltered Soul's DJ sets are often melodic, afro-centric, Latin, tribal, and can branch off to explore other territories. Their sets are never planned in advance; they're spontaneous and from the heart. It's always fresh, always unpredictable and always unfiltered.
