Bill Brewster Delivers an Education
With a firmly-cemented reputation as one of dance music's key commentators and historians as well as an outstanding career as a DJ and producer over the past 30 years, Bill Brewster's voice is one that has played an undeniable role in shaping the landscape of the contemporary dance music industry.
As another writer once keenly noted: what Bill Brewster doesn't know about disc jockeying is probably not worth knowing. Beginning his career as a DJ way back when in '86, he was one of the dudes responsible for founding the legendary Fabric, going on to play weekly for 6 years. Emphasising his musical diversity on the decks, one week he would come on after Sasha in the main room to finish the night, the next he would be sparring with Leo Zero in Room 3 playing mental disco records and Balearic biscuits. In addition to this enviable accolade, his books Last Night A DJ Saved My Life and The Record Players are two must-reads for anybody worth their salt in talking dance music.
