One of America's busiest international DJs - when DJmag gets in contact with him, he's in the middle of a tour of China - Donald Glaude's ongoing appearance in the Top 100 is testament to years of hard work back home.
One of the residents at seminal West Coast club Spundae and more recently the main DJ at the Ice nightclub in Las Vegas, Glaude is one of America's most popular house DJs, still playing regularly across the States.
Donald's labels Eden and Durty release music by Pig & Dan, Gene Carbonell and Bryan Cox. And this year, he finally restarted the production career he began in 2003 with the single 'Big' on Bugeyed Records.
However, he is still first and foremost a DJ and his 2007 double mix CD, 'For The People', recorded live at Ruby Skye, captures the energy and range of a typical Donald Glaude set.
