Bill Brewster, Benjamin Smith (Late Night Tales DJs)
Bill Brewster is welcomed by Late Night Tales to Bristol's The Love Inn for an intimate, late night DJ set.
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. Involved with Late Night Tales since year dot; Bill has supplied expert sleeve notes for each album from Fila Brazillia to BadBadNotGood. His own Late Night Tales presents After Dark trilogy, which – as Bill describes – “is dance music for people who know how to make love”, brought a delightfully heady dose of eclectic slo-mo-disco, house and oddities to the series.
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. 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 three books together, including the acclaimed Last Night A DJ Saved My Life and How To DJ (Properly).
Warming up and cooling down on the night; Late Night Tales DJs’ Benjamin Smith reps the series' wealth and diversity, threading inspiration from the series together with tracks from his own record collection.
Late Night Tales invites the world’s best artists to delve deep into their music collections to create the ultimate "late night” selection. The series includes expertly curated mixes by Bonobo, Groove Armada, Jon Hopkins, Belle & Sebastian, Django Django, Four Tet, Friendly Fires, Nils Frahm and The Cinematic Orchestra.
Get down early, stay out late.
