DJ Glu Sound is London’s Storm DJs Agency boss. Growing up in Belgium with class-mate Sacha Robotti of Robosonic exposed Glu to the underground techno sounds of the long-standing Fuse (which booked talents such as Green Velvet, CJ Bolland, Sven Väth), together with the more progressive trance and house movement as showcased around Belgium by Illusion, Cherry Moon, and La Rocca. University brought Glu to the UK where his exposure was furthered due to the more progressive sounds of Sasha, Craig Richards, and Lee Burridge who hosted Tyrant nights at the famous Bomb club in Nottingham.
Glu Sound worked the crowds of Nottingham, having played at various top-class gigs, warming up for the likes of Brandon Block, Alex P, John Kelly, Nick Rafferty. He also played a key festival during the solar eclipse of 1999 which got press coverage in NME at the time.
After working a full season in Ibiza in 2000, one of his mixes was noticed by Muzik Magazine, and his name was published in the same section as one of his very respected fellow DJs, James Zabiela. A residency at the famous Gatehouse in Derby soon followed, playing alongside many greats including DJ Gee (following which he played out in Ibiza at Bora Bora). Soon after he was resident at a host of Canadian nightclubs on the west-coast, including the legendary Tommy Africas where he played alongside top international talent including Roger Sanchez.
Glu Sound has been around the world, and has even flown over to Iceland to play at Bjork’s club Sirkus where his quirky house sounds were most welcomed. He hosted his own night in North London from 2004-2006; revisited Ibiza to play again in 2009; hosted a residency at Flute London. He has since performed at XOYO, Cargo, even played to a crowd of 1,000s at the Epsom Derby for the Queen.
His production work includes a number of remixes such as Pojke’s She Moves Through The Air (recognised by NME), Yousef’s Italo-Sleeze, Blond:ish’s Town Joker, Dragonette’s My Legs, Bass Kleph’s Less Is More.
Now signed to MUM Records with tracks such as ‘Mad Man’ with Heckner, Glu has worked alongside Billy Gonzalez and Karl S. Berg producing some exciting tech and deep house material. His production work has been used at 2 London Fashion Week events – including one alongside Ella Eyre
