FEB 10 – Bill Brewster (UK)
The standout bookings keep rolling through at Harry’s! Next up a serious beacon of intellect and incredible music knowledge and taste… The one and only
In a former life, Bill was a punk rocker, a chef and also the co-editor of a football magazine. Now you’ll find him taking the roof off a club with his unique selection of deep and tough house music, enchanting a backroom with a genre-bending set of disco, Balearic, rock and hip-hop or playing chillout music by a pool in Ibiza. It’s fair to say Bill Brewster is a man who knows how to work a crowd in the best possible sense.
His commitment to the music industry is clearly reflected in his work, and it’s fair to say he’s in it for the long haul. Bill was one of the founding residents at Fabric in London (a position he held for 5 years), and with almost 30 years in the business, he’s also been behind the wheel of various labels from Twisted UK and Forensic in the ’90s to Disco Sucks and Anorak.
As if the man isn’t busy enough, Bill lives another life as a writer and with his long-term partner-in-crime, Frank Broughton they have written four books together, including the acclaimed Last Night A DJ Saved My Life, How To DJ (Properly) and their most recent The Record Players. The pair also launched DJhistory.com, a website dedicated to the history of dance music and DJing and their party which ran for 20 years from 1995, Low Life.
In his spare time (if he has any), you’ll find him running his weekly podcast ‘DJ History’, in the studio with Fat Camp partner, Theo Noble, re-editing old disco, funk and rock records; or producing original music.
