About Glu Sound:
Glu is the Storm DJs boss, but also one of the main roster. 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, and the legendary Belgian Pierre), 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, and got press coverage in NME at the time.
At the start of 2001 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 a whole range of talent including Roger Sanchez.
Glu 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. More recently, Glu Sound has hosted his own night in North London, revisited Ibiza to play again, began a new residency at Flute London, and started appearing frequently in more London hotspots. He even played to a crowd of 1,000s at the Epsom Derby alongside DRASL for the Queen.
Glu Sound has started producing some 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.
