Recently voted "America's Favorite House DJ - 2006" by the readers of BPM Magazine (an award which he also won in 2003), Bad Boy Bill releases his first ever live mix album & concert DVD, Behind The Decks LIVE. With Bill's reputation built upon his phenomenal club sets that incorporate extravagant visuals and live dance performances in addition to Bill's fierce turntable prowess, it was only logical for Bill to release his first ever live performance audio/visual set. Filmed and recorded over Memorial Day weekend 2006 at three of the nation's premier nightclubs: The Church in Denver, Avalon in Hollywood, and Crobar in Bill's hometown of Chicago, the DVD features footage shot from over 10 cameras captured in stunning Dolby 5.1 and DTS Surround Sound. Never one to short his fans, the DVD rounds out at over 2 hours and includes exclusive multi-media content, behind the scenes features, exclusive visuals, & interviews in addition to the live concert footage.
We would be remiss, however, if we did not talk about the amazing music featured on Behind The Decks LIVE. From the start, this mix grabs your attention with its banging electro house vibes and doesn� let go. Bill effortlessly weaves outstanding tracks and remixes from current house music heroes Eric Prydz, Green Velvet, Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso, Paul Woolford, Fedde Le Grand, Kurd Maverick, Joachim Garraud, JJ Flores & Steve Smooth into a very �ow�sounding club set, all the while incorporating his
traditional use of multiple a cappellas to create on the fly mash ups. The mix album also features exclusive new original productions from Bad Boy Bill himself ("Just Like I Want" and "Someday"), making
this a release that you� l have to see to believe.
Bill got his start DJing as a teenager, joining a DJ crew in the neighborhood and spinning at DJ battles. Only a senior in high school, Bad Boy Bill started his own record label. He eventually became a household
name on Chicago's B96, using his "Bad Boy Bill" audio ID as a way of distinguishing himself from the other DJs on the radio. Today, Bill spends most of his time producing tunes in the studio or out on the road, playing up to 150 gigs annually, everywhere from New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles to international hotspots including Peru, Columbia, Germany, England, and Spain.
