Gig Information

Bill Brewster is the man for all occasions.

In a former life, Bill was a punk rocker, a chef and also the co-editor of football magazine When Saturday Comes but has been a record nerd all of his life. He began DJing in the 1980s, but came into his own in the early 1990s, particularly during a two-year stint in New York running DMC’s office, where nights at the Sound Factory and hanging out with Danny Tenaglia gave him the musical grounding you can still hear in his music today. Bill was also one of the founding residents at Fabric in London, a position he held for five years. There are few still playing regularly today that have his dedication, eclecticism and encyclopaedic knowledge of music.

His parallel life is 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 were also behind the legendary money-drain DJhistory.com and their party which ran for 20 years from 1995, Low Life. They now spend most of their time on a yacht moored in Manchester Shipping Canal.

He has been working in the industry’s fringes for almost 30 years including the running of various labels from Twisted UK and Forensic in the ’90s to Disco Sucks and Anorak. Occasionally Bill finds time to secrete himself away in a studio to make music or cook up edits. And when he’s not doing any of that, he has a wife, two children and a dog called Mavis to tend to. He is currently working on a secret project involving New York and its immense musical history.
