Playlist: Bill Brewster

The DJ has picked some of his favourite tunes, just for you...

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. 

He’s got a gig in Manchester coming up, so we asked the man himself to pick us some tunes that he can’t stop listening to at the moment, and tell us a bit about them. Enjoy!  

Emilie Nana – I Rise

“Really lovely reinterpretation of a Maya Angelou poem, re-tooled for dancefloor business.” 

Chrissy – Back In Time

“Old fashioned but brilliant house record that is driven by a killer bassline.”  

Namosh – Soul Survivor

“Heavily influenced by early 1980s electro, but with a nice modern touch to it.”   

Nona Hendryx – Peelback

“Taken from an EP collaboration between Soul Clap and Nona, this is proper modern funk with a heavy kick to it.”  

Marcus Marr – Familiar Five

“Almost everything he does is great and this is no exception. Stupidly good lyrics and a slow but relentless rhythm to keep the fingers pointing upwards.”  

Tunnelvisions – Guava

“Reminds me a bit of one of those eccentric Belgian or Norwegian records that occasionally crossed over into the charts in the 1970s. Fantastic record and super Balearic.”  

Uta Bella – Nassa Nassa

“French Cameroonian artist I discovered on one of those excellent Africa Seven compilations (essential purchases!)” 

Sirs ft Cinnamon Denise – What A Day

“Great warm-up record and perfect for those long, er, sunny evenings we’re currently having…” 

Sultan Shakes – Oud Do Ray

“Lovely oddball cover version of Voodoo Ray that appeared on the essential Deek Recordings’ Gloria compilation last year.”  

Thomass Jackson – Fantomas

“Lovely, gloopy, late night electronic wrecking ball from Mexico that sounds tremendous played extremely loud.” 

Bill will be spinning tunes at Manchester’s Carlton Club on Friday 13 April. Tickets available now at www.ticketweb.co.uk/billbrewster
