1978 (40 Jahre alt)
Glastonbury, Somerset, England, Vereinigtes Königreich
Will Saul, born 28. December 1978 in Glastonbury, England, is a DJ, music producer and the founder of Simple Records and Aus Music. He started his first record label, Simple Records in 2003, after having worked at Sony International’s A&R department for two years. It was when subsequently working for the legendary Koobla records and then Phonica that he had his eyes fully opened to the wonderful world of house and techno. Simple Records is one of the leading lights of the more melodic side of house music – releasing music from the label’s core artists (Saul, Sideshow) as well as the likes of Vector Lovers, Marc Romboy and Motorcitysoul.
February 2005 saw the release of "Simple One", a compilation which encapsulates the labels sound – edgy and deep but tuneful and organic. In early summer of the same year, Will followed with the release of his debut artist album Space Between, a soulful and melodic journey geared towards home listening rather than the dancefloor. Will started Aus Music in 2006 with Sideshow (Fink on Ninja Tune). The label explores the more leftfield and experimental side of house, techno, dub and downtempo, with releases from cutting edge artists such as Motorcitysoul, Lee Jones, Martyn, Appleblim, Ramadanman, Joy Orbison, Shur-I-Kan and Midland.
Over the last few years Will has gained an admirable reputation as not only a DJ, but also a talented A&R and producer, thus in 2009 Will released a three-disc contribution to EQ Recordings highly regarded "Balance series". Will was also a resident at the legendary London club The End for many years before it closed its doors in January 2009. He contributed to Radio 1's Essential Mix series on 27 April 2013.
Since 2015, Saul has served as A&R for !K7's acclaimed "DJ-Kicks" series, beginning with Actress' entry to the series in May and continuing with entries by DJ Koze, Seth Troxler, Moodymann, Dam-Funk, Jackmaster, Marcel Dettmann and Daniel Avery that received praise from critics and audiences.
