Bill Brewster 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. 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, 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. When they are not writing books the pair concentrate on their labour-of-love website DJhistory.com. They also throw parties of legendary quality in the shape of Low Life, their warehouse rave-up that has now been running an incredible 17 years.
He has been working in the industry for almost 30 years, running 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 (under the name Hotel Motel with Alex Tepper) or cook up edits.
