GLENN on Spotify
“Supplier of deep, infectious dance grooves and a feel-good atmosphere.”
That is how Glenn describes himself as a DJ/producer. Although he grew up in an environment where little attention was paid to electronic music, Glenn developed an increasing interest in the genre in the early 1980s. Especially after hearing the song Popcorn by Hot Butter (1972), there was the absolution that he would ever do something with the genre. Growing up in a period when there was a lot going on musically, it took almost 20 years before he actually started producing.
His love for the then fairly new genre of hip-hop was so great that he first focused on that. As a successful breakdancer in the 1980s he regularly toured the country with a group and was very active as promoter and mc of his hiphop organization MadFlava in the late 90s. Partly due to the latter fact, it happened regularly that Glenn himself came to stand behind the turntables.
He left the hip hop world and during the years he slowly but surely ended up in a world of house, techhouse, deephouse and Intelligent Electronic Music. Now as a DJ/producer Glenn has found several ways to express his musicality. Hypnotic synths, heavy deep bass, melancholic melodies but also disco, hip hop and soul influences, accompanied by a “feet of the floor” house-kick, are among the ingredients. And by constantly developing and being very involved in the scene, he stays up to date!
“For me as a DJ, it’s all about getting the audience in the mood they came for that night. This by creating a lovely deep groove. And that can be in different styles, tempos, new or old tracks. As long as the evening remains a wonderful experience! “
