Anthony Mansfield has been on a 20-year journey through the world of
psychedelic dance music ever since attending the now-legendary full moon massives of
San Francisco’ s Wicked Crew in the early 90’ s. Anthony spent the rest of the decade
in New York, spreading the gospel of deep house across the Empire State with a late-
night radio show, his 8-year-running weekly, and the countless underground parties
that gave birth to his own crew, HectorWorks Soundsystem. After an exhausting and
debaucherous 2-year run as GM, talent booker, and resident DJ at upstate’ s largest live
music venue, The Odyssey, Anthony was ready to return to San Francisco.
Anthony hit the West Coast running in 2002, joining his old friend DJ M3 as
resident DJ and co-promoter of the infamous Green Gorilla Lounge in a string of
successful weekly club nights, true seat-of-your-pants underground parties, and blown-
out monthly events across the Bay Area, with some of the city’ s and world’ s best names
in dance music. Anthony has left his mark on Burning Man for the last decade as well,
at the Space Lounge, Green Gorilla, and Disco Knights sound camps, with a trail of
exhausted dancers and party people in the wake of his many epic sets on the playa.
Anthony has been producing his own particular brand of dance music since his
first release on Rong Records in ’ 04 with Ben Cook as “ Barfly” . Quickly moving to
found his own label, Hector Works, in 2005 with NYC deep-house production wizard
Nick Chacona, Anthony has worked with Garth, Tal M. Klein, Sneak-E Pete, M3, and
others in the last five years, releasing tracks on Gomma, Moodmusic, Aniligital , and
Om Records. His tunes have received nods (and plays) from some of the world’ s top
DJs, including Dimitri from Paris, Harvey, Greg Wilson, Doc Martin, Idjut Boys, Ivan
Smaggle, and Playgroup. Camped out in his room at Moulton Studios, Anthony is
currently hard at work on the 16th release for Hector Works, and looking forward to
taking a break for the Treasure Island Music Festival!
Born in Florida in the late 70's, Sneak-E Pete was raised listening to the sounds of disco and freestyle as he grew up. As a teenager he began collecting funk, hiphop, and breakbeat records, and eventually decided to attend college in upstate New York. He soon began DJing, and producing memorable underground raves and club events in the town of Ithaca. His sound was a mix of funky and electro breakbeats, performing regularly all over the East Coast. He was also introduced to Mike DeVellis, and began performing live DJ sets alongside Mike's saxophone.
Pete soon moved to Brooklyn, NY and teamed up with Scottie B to form Blunted Funk Recordings. He produced a series of weekly and monthly events in NYC, most notably a three year residency at the infamous Halcyon lounge to host a weekly show on Groovetech.com. After many trips out West, he decided it was time to bring the Blunted Funk sound to San Francisco.
Currently, Sneak-E Pete hosts a few monthly events in San Francisco, and has synched up with long-time friend Anthony Mansfield to host 'Sick Moves' on Samurai.FM. He's also been spending more time in the studio, creating remixes and original music for Blunted Funk. Pete teamed up with Anthony Mansfield to remix Quincy Jointz "Lazy" for Aniligital Music in '08 and recently signed a tune to the Pig Balls label in Sweden.
