The Dead Horse Gang Presents... Bill Brewster


Line Up:

BILL BREWSTER
Tim Forrester (The Dead Horse Gang)
Douglas (The Dead Horse Gang)

Whether he’s taking the roof off a club with his unique selection of deep and tough house music, enchanting a backroom with a genre-bending set of disco, Balearic, rock and hip hop or playing chillout music by a pool in Ibiza, 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. 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.
