After experiencing the explosion of house music in the UK in the late eighties Bill started DJing professionally in 1992 whilst living in Paris. He played regularly at the ‘immense’ parties held at many of the best nightclubs in Paris: Elysees Marbeuf, Folies Pigalle, Elysee Monmartre, Cave de Clichy, Le Rex, Le Bataclan… He also embarked on a two-year weekly residency at the renowned Parisian Sunday session Jellybabies.

Returning to England in 1995 he began working for the original DJ mix compilation series Journeys by DJ for whom he continued to play at JDJ tour nights around the country. This culminated in a monthly DJ residency for Triptonite held at seminal London underground club The End, a breeding ground for the most prolific house and techno artists of its time.

In 1997 Bill took over A&R and label management at The End label End Recordings. He also ran the legendary Mr.C imprint Plink Plonk. He was responsible for the development of the critically acclaimed album Low Life by the now infamous Layo + Bushwacka!  He was also an integral part of developing founder and club resident Mr.C’s debut artist album.  This was coupled with his burgeoning presence at the label’s mother club The End, where Bill has played with the elite of the scenes performers including Derrick Carter, DJ Sneak, Deep Dish, Dave Angel and the ubiquitous Mr C and Layo + Bushwacka! among others. Bill hosted the End Recordings room at Subterrain where he was joined by Miguel Migs and DJ Rasoul (Naked Music), Drop Music, Hernan Cattaneo, Charles Webster to name a few.

He has also played at countless international dance events over the years and was resident DJ on MTV European tours across the continent including Ibiza where Bill played for Sonar at the 15,000 strong MTV event at Privilege, as well a DJ set in between Gorillaz and Morcheeba on the main stage at the Isle of MTV event in Lisbon and at the MTV European Music Awards after party in Barcelona.

In 2003 he created Shakes Records and released numerous highly acclaimed 12s and toured to promote the label before deciding to put life in music on hold and travel the world. After returning in 2005 he relocated to Barcelona where he still resides.

More recently Bill can be found spinning at parties in Barcelona, London and Ibiza for Finca am, including the opening night for Dance 88/89 and his monthly mix on Ibiza Global Radio. He also recorded and a special mix for the Lapsus Radio show on Spain’s National Radio 3.

He has also been honing his music production skills, releasing remixes, edits and tracks on various platforms including his casabop label, which features his own material as well as tracks from like-minded producers and friends.
