BAD BOY BILL: www.BADBOYBILL.com
Bad Boy Bill is in the mix and hes live Understand!
So goes one of the legendary chants of Chicago house icon Bad Boy Bill, who began name checking when he first started out on the radio to distinguish himself from the other DJs on the airwaves. Bill has come a long way from his days as a radio mix show DJ. On his belt hang the titles of DJ, Artist, Producer, Songwriter, and Entrepreneur. Not to mention three-time DMC FINALIST, 1998 Winter Music Conference MIXSHOW DJ OFTHE YEAR, 1999 URB Magazine 2nd Place DJ OF THE YEAR, and this years #1 FAVORITE DJ according toBPM Magazine. And now, after the success of the Bangin In The Box series, Bill is upping the ante to deliver Behind the Decks, a new mix CD and DVD, on System Recordings.
Hailed by DJ Magazine as One of Americas most popular and influential DJs, the renowned artist didnt grow up dreaming of making music in his youth, he thought he would perhaps pursue a career as a professional baseball player. But in high school, after joining a DJ crew with some of his neighborhood friends, Bill entered the world of DJ battles and party promotion. “My DJ style originated with the idea to remix a song live with two copies of the same record and then combine scratching and hip-hop techniques with house grooves.” At only 16, his friend Julian Jumpin Perez, who deemed Bill the dopest white kid hed ever seen, stood Bill before prominent radio jockey Farley Jackmaster Funk at WGCI, and he began scratching and mixing the eight records hed been practicing on for hours every day. Farley was so impressed he recruited Bill right then and there. After WGCI, Bill found himself on the airwaves again on Chicagos B96, and eventually broadened his skills, making his own tracks and starting his own record label while still a senior in high school. Nowadays, Bill averages over 150 DJ gigs annually, playing everywhere from New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles to international hotspots including Peru, Colombia, Germany, England, and Spain.
Coming from a broad musical and cultural background, Bill cites numerous personal influences. My grandfather was an opera singer so he was always into music, and was very supportive, he says. My dad took me downtown to buy my first set of 1200s I will always thank him for that. Additionally influenced by the likes of motivational speaker Anthony Robbins and Chicago mix show DJs The Hot Mix 5, Bill notes, Everything I hear affects every song I choose to play and the way I play it.
And his inspiration? Spinning the crowd into a dancing frenzy with his lighting-quick mixes (often playing up to 20 records in the time the average DJ would mix in 5). “The payoff for me is seeing people dancing and having a great time during my set,” he explains. And of course, another source of inspiration: the ladies (Bill was named the Wilt Chamberlain of Techno by Lotus Magazine).
The double disc release, Behind the Decks, delivers that famed Bad Boy Bill pumpin house sound with his legendary scratching, a cappella, and turntable tricks, but also takes the entire live experience to a new level with DTS and Dolby 5.1 surround sound mixes and visuals. With this mix CD and two-hour DVD, Bill hopes his audience can finally get a good picture of what Im like and what I do. A perfectionist, Bill is always striving to expand and improve upon what hes done before. And Bill feels this new mix is doing just that moving forward, progressing and growing. My musical style is constantly evolving. I used to spin deep house, acid house, hip house, freestyle, techno, and the list goes on. My sound today is what it is based on the music I have heard or made prior, Bill says. Smiling, he adds, My personal style has changed as well, from Underoos to Wranglers, Jordache to parachute pants, and then all the way to Snug and Prada.
In spite of all of his accomplishments, Bad Boy Bill remains modest, levelheaded and positively motivated about his direction. “I am always thinking about the future.” Working in the studio up to 14-16 hours some days, Bill continues to push the boundaries, both with Behind The Decks as well as his next endeavour: his artist album.
You can catch Bad Boy Bill live and Behind The Decks as the BTD tour rolls through a city near you because Bad Boy Bill is in the mix and hes live – Understand!
