After years of listening to pirate radio, Glen took the decision at 15 years of age to get his first pair of turntables. he started mixing happy hardcore as a bench mark and slowly progressed into garage when the happy hardcore grew into gabba. during the late 90′s garage really took off and became commercial and being over killed on commercial radio. Glen decided for a change, after meeting up with friends and after numerous house parties which sometimes lasted the entire weekend he decided house music was the way forward, he decided to venture out of the bedroom / front room and try his luck at radio which was his original inspiration from the early 90′s… He teamed up with a friend and after a chance conversation with a work college in 2006 found himself on his first radio station.
Glen found himself mixing Electro at the time with his friend and decided to call themselve’s “ELECTRO SAINTS” a name which has stuck since the early days of his radio and club career, during this time he found himself playing in south east london regulary and decided he wanted to venture out of the box and host a night of his own called THE SHAKEDOWN (a big risk for a novice).
The party was more of a success than he could have hoped for and fuelled his ambition to play out more and network across the underground house scene which saw THE ELECTRO SAINTS into the biggest gig of there career at the time, “The Gallery’s 15th birthday” with Tall Paul, Seb Fontaine, Danny Rampling and the legendary Paul Oakenfold at Ministry Of Sound, london.
Growing in popularity and confidence he started talking to other promoters who gave them opportunities to play on boat parties up and down the river thames and more bookings came for Ministry, Pacha and other clubs around london, as well as plans to start another night called HOUSE FRICTION.
In 2009 Glen found himself on his second radio station where the Electro Saints remained untill 2011 and when The Electro faded into heavy blips, beeps and baselines almost resembling dub step it was time for another change, a change which saw the end of the vinyl era and the begining of the digital. Glen bought himself a pair of pioneer cdj’s and started to download a sound he discovered in Ministry and on the radio, TECH, TECHNO & PROGRESSIVE HOUSE. In february 2011 The Electro Saints found they’re way onto SELECT UK, an all new experience from previous radio stations they had been on. new stories new people and different mature crowd altogether!
After six months on SELECT UK, The Electro Saints became “DJ GLEN SAINT” after a mutual agreement, they decided to part company and go there seperate ways.
Glen is still currently talking to promoters, updating his portfolio and producing music.
His goals are far greater now than they have ever been, taking his main inspiration from mark knight and his accomplishments and plans to follow in his footsteps with a little twist along the way….
The adventure has only just begun…..
