DJ BILLY WOODS
Eclectic, expansive, outrageous, DJ Billy Woods is the one man disco freak show that will blow the mind of the most seasoned of professional disc jockeys never mind club goer. A giant amongst those in the know, thanks in part to his incredible 20,000+ record collection and unique ability to source the most sought after records on the planet for himself and many of major players on the scene. His radical selections and unorthodox approach are as likely to challenge and confound the most flexible of music tastes and dance floors as they are to inspire those of the most hardened opinions to re-engage and embrace genres previously dismissed as outdated, unfashionable, unthinkable.
This could include anything as outlandish as drenching party goers in a ten minute long sonic thunderstorm only to bring the house down with a maelstrom of dance floor friendly rock, to djing directly from the dance floor while getting down to the ecstatic response of party revellers, or simply stripping naked and crossfading with his penis… just to make the point that a dj without 12 inches is wholly inadequate when it comes to hosting a serious adult dance party!
Yet as those who’ve experienced Billy in action will testify, however far out the music gets somehow his sets always manage to come together all at once, often in the most unlikely or unexpected of ways, to make perfect sense just in time for re-entry.
Having almost single-handedly revived local interest in disco through his no boundaries approach to djing during the late 90’s & early noughties, a scene that has gone global in recent years with the success and interest in artists such DJ Harvey, Lindstrom, Prins Thomas and events such as 'Horse Meat Disco', and having performed alongside all but few of the djing greats that are still with us - legends that include Francois Kervorkian, Nicky Siano & Danny Krivit, Billy’s focus in recent years has been in creating, with the help of long time partner, fashion stylist Lisa Ringrose & local audio genius Bob Balmain ‘the best club party experience on planet earth’ here in Glasgow - namely ‘Supermax’.
