Rico Sanchez releases new single, ‘Thunderbird’



The DJ, composer and producer of digital music known as Rico “The Politician” Sanchez has released his latest single, “Thunderbird.” The track has been published in two versions, edited for radio and an extended-play edition. Both have been proudly released independent of support from the corporate music industry on the Last Nights DJ music label. A spacious, titanic electronic dance song with elements of both old-school house music and contemporary, cutting-edge styles, “Thunderbird” stands as proof that the Politician has finally arrived.


Rico Sanchez describes his “Thunderbird” single as “a big-room, festival track inspired by Native American folklore regarding the menacing legends of the so-called Thunder Bird, and its thunderous sound when it flew through the skies. I imagined this bird terrorizing any major city in today’s world and tried to make this sound come alive through my production, gathering inspiration not only from the hard, pounding synths but the momentum of it owning the skies.”


A veteran of the DJ underground for more than 17 years, Sanchez is no newcomer. He cites as main artistic influences such legends of the turntables as David Guetta, Justice, Steve Aoki, Knife Party, Bad Boy Bill, Designer Drugs, Benny Benassi, UTKU, Dave Spoon, Axwell, and Calvin Harris. His own sound takes enough cues from these to make his new single “Thunderbird” very attractive to fans of the above, but retains also a unique flavor all his own.


Sanchez has performed all over the world, including locales like New York, India, Australia, and Florida. His professional name, “the Politician,” comes from his reputation for welcoming celebrities and high-profile socialites to performances on his guest list, and for his knack for leading party-goers through the roof. When he’s not composing his own music, he spins for dance parties everywhere there is music.


“Thunderbird” by Rico Sanchez the Politician is available online worldwide.
