Over the last 20 years Billy has played at hundreds of glamorous venues, underground clubs, fashion shows, beach bars, boat parties, warehouses and stadiums. He seduces dance floors with an outstanding record collection and finely tuned technique, selecting an appropriate vibe to fit a particular crowd and setting. He embraces the full range of house music, from deep to funky, from disco to tech, with a seamless and smooth mixing style.
Inspired by the first of many trips to Ibiza Billy Gonzalez’s DJ performances began in London’s Shoreditch scene at Fluid and Ember. His club debut came in 2003 when asked to play a warm-up set in The Quad for BBC Radio 1’s Judge Jules. He has since DJed at London’s historic Turnmills, The End, Heaven, Ministry of Sound, SEOne, Egg, Key and the famed Cross in King’s Cross, and he hosted a weekly show on Pulse FM, winning both the ‘Best DJ’ and ‘Best Club DJ’ awards.
As well as regular bookings in Ibiza as part of the WiLDCHiLD tour, playing the Kanya opening party, El Divino, Savannah and the Pukka Up, Billy also played at Pacha and Fabric events with Annie Mac, Groove Armada, Simian Mobile Disco and Dizzee Rascal. Another highlight was a weekend performing back to back with Sandy Rivera in Poland to an audience of thousands.
His repeat collaborators include brothers Shane Watcha & Clint Lee from the Zoo Project. Now signed to the Storm DJs agency, he played at the Emirates Stadium, Earls Court exhibition centre, Soho House and the penthouse suite of the Mayfair Hotel, to name a few.
On the production-front, his first release was in 2008 for Red Recordings and more recently he remixed for Berlin based label Get Physical. His fashion-inspired Spring Summer Collection mix charted in the Beatport top 20 and has reached over 100,000 listens on YouTube.
