We are delighted to announce that this month an absolute legend in the world of dance music is heading to Australia & New Zealand for his first ever Antipodean tour.
Bill Brewster is interesting not only because of what he does on the decks, but because he has played a massive part in defining dance music via his books and journalistic endeavours.
Bill began DJing in 1986. He was a founding resident of seminal London club Fabric, going on to play weekly for 6 years. A musically diverse DJ, one week he would come on after Sasha in the main room to finish the night, the next he would be sparring with Leo Zero in Room 3 playing mental disco records and Balearic biscuits.
His books ‘Last Night A DJ Saved My Life’ and ‘The Record Players – DJ Revolutionaries’ have helped to define dance music culture, the industry that surrounds it and the main figureheads who have helped to shape into the force that it is today.
For this tour Bill has been scouring through his massive record collection to bring a mix of definitive classics that will sit alongside up to the moment bombs to get the dancefloor pumping.
“I’m psyched about coming to Australia and New Zealand not least because I’ve heard it’s warmer than Grimsby. I’ve been furiously digging out some forgotten gems in my records room for the trip and I’m looking forward to busting some of them out, so hold on to your corsets”.
Bill is happily hanging out in Auckland for a few weeks, and will be presenting a seminar at the Red Bull Studio on the Friday evening before the Ink Bar party...
Massive thanks to Skyy Vodka and George FM for the support of this sure to be dope get-down!
