Disco Dan and Helena Hauff. I am the night, color me black! 11/02/2012 at Golden Pudel Club.
You know the saying ‘Dance like nobody is watching’? Transfer this to dj’ing, and you could end up with something like ‘Play like there is no tomorrow’. An obsessive way of spinning records. and this is exactly how you could describe the way Mick Wills plays. Mick is not an entertainer or superstar, but one of the few true artist dj’s left, someone for whom the music is still all that matters.
Mick Wills starts his dj- and vinyl collecting career in 1986 at the age of 14. In 1994, one night he spins together with DJ Hell who is impressed and gives wills the chance to spin in the legendary Ultraschall in Munich. In 1996 he works in the studio for the first time and he knows from that moment that he wants to produce records as well as play them. He records his first tracks in 2001, and Hell’s Gigolo label immediately bites. The “Atomic EP” that also includes a remake of Bobby Orlando’s “Calling All The Boys” by the Kinky Lovers (Mick Wills & Isabella Venis) is a success and two other Mick Wills releases follow. This year, he will release a new track on Urbi et Orbi 2, a compilation on the Italian Minimalrome label. He’s made a name for himself too as a remixer with projects released on Minimalrome, Space Factory and Automatik-Datamatik. Later in 2011, Wills will do a production on Nation Records, the label owned by Traxx.
While signed to gigolo, his dj-career takes off. With germany not big enough anymore, ‘The Gigolo From Porschetown’, spins blistering sets in places as diverse as Mayday in Dortmund, Barcelona’s Loft, and clubs in Chicago, Amsterdam, Valencia, Moscow, London, Athens, Budapest, Bucharest, etc. His sets mix the best of over 25 years of dance music in a way that few dj’s can, effortlessly switching between the cutting edge of today’s sounds and vintage chicago, detroit, italo, hi nrg, wave, acid and electro. Wills is a true music freak, an avid record collector and really does play like every night is his last. Again and again and again…
