Biography

Luke Wilson AKA Utah Jazz, is one of the original liquid funksters. He started mixing Drum & Bass whilst still at school, inspired by LTJ Bukem & Alex Reece and his DJ career soon blossomed – randomly adopting the name ‘Utah Jazz’ from the US Basketball team to showcase his preference for the mid 90s ‘Jazz-Jungle’ sound.

In 2008, his debut album ‘It’s A Jazz Thing’ was released worldwide to both commercial and critical acclaim – cementing Utah Jazz’s position as one of the major cross-over D&B artists this side of the millennium. Pipped at the post by worthy winners Chase & Status, ’It’s A Jazz Thing’ was also the 2nd highest placed Drum & Bass album in Mixmag’s famous 2008 Top 50 poll, with Pendulum coming in 3rd.

Released through Bryan G’s seminal V Recordings camp (the first home of Roni Size & DJ Marky) with radio and club support from the likes of Trevor Nelson, Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, LTJ Bukem, Fabio, Andy C, Goldie and Gilles Peterson – the global impact of ‘It’s A Jazz Thing’ has also now made Utah Jazz one of the most in demand selectors on the international D&B circuit.

Since the release of ’It’s A Jazz Thing’, Utah Jazz has now joined the likes of High Contrast & Danny Byrd as one D&B’s leading remixers with reworks for Wiley (Atlantic Records / Warner), Tricky (Domino Records), Lethal Bizzle (Search & Destroy / V2),Serani (Island Records / Universal) & Yo Majesty.

After surprisingly high sales of“It’s A Jazz Thing’ both in the UK and Worldwide, 2010 sees the release of Utah Jazz’s highly anticipated 2nd studio LP entitled ‘Vintage’. Album collaborations include Jungle Drum & Bass legend, Jonny L (XL Recordings), multi-million selling vocalist, Chelonis R Jones (from Royksopp) plus MCs Conrad & DRS so expect ground breaking new territory once again from this prolific Drum & Bass DJ, Producer & Remixer.
