Hipnotic Jazz, otherwise known as Glen, is an experimental music and picture maker from Southend, UK. Glen’s music takes influences from jazz, electronica, Movie/TV scores, hip hop, house, garage, broken beat, dub, techno, jungle, drum n bass, soul, funk, reggae, afrobeat, folk and most other things in between.
Glen grew up on a mixture of soul, prog rock, hip hop and acid house. In 1995 Glen bought himself his first set of turntables and started DJing a mixture of chicago / detroit house and US / UK garage. From 1998 Glen expanded his musical interests through discovering the music and artists that inspired the dance and hip hop music he mixed and listened to. Whilst DJing at local clubs & bars around Southend (at this stage as a funk, soul, hip hop, trip hop, dance music DJ) Glen studied alto and soprano sax, percussion, turntablism, guitar and production. In 2003 Glen switched gears and took on a career supporting vulnerable young people and families.
Ten years later and Glen creates Hipnotic Jazz – after discovering new inspiration in photo editing and graphic design, and which eventually leads him back to digital music production, online collaborations and social media promotion.
