Decoded Sundays – Utah Saints

Utah Saints are made up of Tim Utah and Jez Willis. Together they have been making music, DJing and playing gigs around the globe since the birth of house music. In that time 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 artists from Annie Lennox to Slayer and have supported U2 on a UK and European tour

.

The much loved pair have set up and promoted award winning and legendary club nights, SugarBeatClub, in Leeds, London and Edinburgh and have been regulars on radio stations such as BBC Radio 1, XFM, Galaxy, Kiss and Ministry of Sound. Tied to no sound in particular, the Utah Saints have always hovered between genres and between commercial success and underground kudos. 20 years later, they are still as in demand as ever.

 Of course, Utah Saints are first and foremost fierce and dexterous DJs who have played over 1000 gigs at every club and festival going alongside the likes of Annie Mac, Justice, Erol Alkan and many more. In their time the Saints have remixed everyone from Bring Me The Horizon to The Stone Roses to Girls Aloud to DJ Fresh. As A&Rs this pair have steered their SugarBeatClub label through some fantastic releases, have released a Beatport chart topping compilation, Electronic Bass Music and will continue to serve up the goods as long as they live.

“We were honoured to be asked to do this mix…” They said “Its always a pleasure and good fun to do a mix which is on a bit of a departure from what would normally do as a DJ mix. Everybody has their own definitions of what ‘Chill Out’ is but for us, this is a collection of tracks that we would never really get the opportunity to play out but have connected with us in some way or another.”

The mix also has two world exclusives as well. Firstly their remix of The Losers – ‘The Chain’ which the boys believe is not commercially available anywhere online and also the very last track in the mix, Utah Saints – ‘I wish’, which is a track they made earlier this year and is very different to the style they normally produce.
