BAD BOY BILL
It wasn’t very long ago that a bizarre and glorious new sound began creeping out of nightclubs in Chicago. Before this future music captivated the world, before it spread to London and New York, before it was even given a name, this new sound
captured the imagination of a young Chicago teenager who prior to coming out of his teens would have a name synonymous with Chicago House Music: That name was Bad Boy Bill.
Bill’s passion for House Music and his astounding natural ability behind the turntables eventually led him to the competition scene where he would win numerous DJ Battles across the country including placing in multiple DMC Championships. Bill constantly pushed the envelope and came up with incredible style and techniques to punish his competition including a performance so infamous it was censored on the DMC contest video.
Always one step ahead of the pack, Bill foresaw the industry’s shift to digital media, and teamed up with a small group of friends to co-found Beatport.com. Starting out as a small website Beatport quickly exploded and revolutionized the DJ world and has now become the worlds leading distributor of electronic music.
While Bill continues to go strong with an intense tour schedule and countless hours in the studio working on upcoming releases; one thing that will not change is his fans demands for Bad Boy Bills signature Mix Cd’s. The “Behind the Decks Radio show” a monthly podcast and free download became Bills answer to the swarms of fans that constantly asked him for new mixes. Unlike other podcasts the Behind the Decks radio show gives you the feel of a live Bad Boy Bill DJ set filled with exclusive tracks and Bad Boy Bill style mixing and scratching. Upon its launch the radio show was immediately picked up by radio stations across the world for syndication.
In an industry that’s notoriously fickle, and regularly dethrones it’s top DJs for the next big thing, Bad Boy Bill has consistently stayed ahead of the pack. His innovation has shaped the industry, not just behind the decks, but in every aspect of the business. Bad Boy Bill is the rare embodiment of past, present, and future. He will always be a legend for his contribution to the EDM world, he is lauded for what he’s doing today, and the industry and his legions of fans are always wondering what he will do next.
