Utah Saints is an English electronic band based in Leeds, Yorkshire, England. The music is written and produced by Jez Willis and Tim Garbutt, who were joined on-stage by other musicians when the band played live from 1991 to 2001, since then they have performed as DJs. The band had three top ten singles in the UK Singles Chart in the 1990s, and were notable for their pioneering and extensive use of sampling technology — in particular, their practice of manipulating samples from mainstream pop and rock songs and combining them with contrasting dance beats, using samples in new contexts. They had 3 further UK top 40 singles in 2000 - 2001, a top 10 single in 2008 and a top 30 single in 2012.
