Having left the UK at 21 to open Ministry of Sound in Bangkok, Taipei and Singapore, Damian Saint has been at the forefront of the Asian house music scene for 17 years now.
He currently presides over the music direction at the W Hotel in Bali as Music & Sound Suite Curator, and spends most of his days on the decks and in the studio alongside some of the world’s most exciting house and techno acts, leaving periodically to bring his sound to turntables around the region.
On the decks his (at times) blistering displays of technical ability, and unapologetically eclectic track selection make for some electric moments, and despite nearly 20 years of playing records, there is a palpable excitement to every set he plays.
His skills have taken him across many of Asia’s house and techno hot spots, from Japan to Vietnam, Seoul to Bali and everywhere in between, with a long stint as main resident at Ministry of Sound in Singapore.
Track selector, Music Director, and bullshit detector, his strait talking attitude, softened only by his passion for the music, has earned him the respect of industry heavy hitters at both the global and local level, and he is set to remain one of the key components of the house and techno scene in Asia into perpetuity.

We stayed at the Marvellous One Bedroom Villa for our family vacation. The ambience, from traversing the bamboo driveway to entering the villa gives an upbeat and positive vibes for our intended retreat.
The lobby area was lively and the hotel staff were friendly and extremely helpful which reflects Balinese hospitality.
The villa was outstanding. The ambience was cozy and room cleanliness was well kept. The bed was remarkably comfortable and the in room decor was done in really good taste. Although, we did have some trouble with the electrical sockets as UK 3 pin sockets just would not plug into the universal electrical outlet. A non issue really as we come prepared with universal adaptors.
On to hotel dining. The steaks at FIRE were brilliant, cooked to perfection and our hostess for the evening did a splendid job entertaining our family that evening.
To sum it up, our experience at W Bali was beyond our expectations. We feel relaxed and rejuvenated after our stay and will be looking forward to return. Highly recommended.
