Utah Saints Minirigs Mixtape
We have something a bit different for you this week, so I’m now going to pass you over to UTAH SAINTS!
Utah Saints have been making music, DJ-ing and playing gigs around the globe since the birth of House music and are made up of Tim Utah and Jez Willis.
The world renowned duo have released 9 Top 40 UK hits, 4 of which hit the Top 10. They have sold over 2 million records worldwide, sampled a huge range of artsist from Annie Lennox to Slayer, Kate Bush to Metallica and have supported U2 on a UK and European tour, set up and promoted award winning and legendary clubnights in Leeds, London & Edinburgh and have recorded and presented shows for radio stations such as BBC Radio 1, XFM, Galaxy, Kiss and Ministry of Sound. They have rather precariously walked the tightrope between genres and also between the underground and the mainstream. Utah Saints list of achievements is huge and they are continuing to add to it, 20 years later:-
Utah Saints are still very much at the top of their game hosting their SugarBeatClub brand at various Clubs and curating festival stages, putting on an eclectic range of nights from with DJ sets from Annie Mac to Justice, Zane Lowe to A-Trak , and have played alongside everyone from Take That to Erol Alkan. They have now put on over 500 nights, and DJ’d themselves at over 1000.
When the pioneering DJs aren’t playing at clubs and festivals in various parts of the world, they can be found in the studio working hard on their new material and also remixing other artists. These have included everyone from Bring Me The Horizon to the Stone Roses to Girls Aloud, their most recent being DJ Fresh. As well as running their own Sugarbeat label which is now into it’s 4th year, the duo have also released their own compilation in 2013 called Electronic Bass Music and have also just had a number 1 on Beatport with their Soundpack Collection.
