DPC Local Disco Showcase: Brian Billion

We are one week away from DPC’s relaunch festivities. Yes, I’m referring to the Local Disco Showcase at U Street Music Hall, on February 6th, and we’ve got your spotlights on each DJ of the line coming to you all week.

Brian Billion’s avatar
First up is an individual who needs no introduction to those who have  frequented the DC electronic music scene over the past decade. You’ve probably seen him at U Street Music Hall performing alongside Classixx or most recently Benoit & Sergio.

Or maybe at 9:30Club,  for the ridiculous 90's dance party known as "No Scrubs".

You might have even spotted him behind the booth at U Hall handling the lights that help create the perfect energy on the dance floor. 

Have you noticed all those amazing posters draped over the venue’s walls? He’s responsible for those as well.   Meet U Street Music co-owner and one of DC's favorite DJs, Brian Billion.

We recently caught up with the man and dished up a serving of rapid fire questions. So sit back and take a fantastic Disco voyage through his responses:

DPC: Biggest influences from the Classic Disco Era?

BB: Giorgio Moroder
         SOLAR Records (Los Angeles)

DPC: Nu Disco Era?

BB: Classixx
Ron Basejam

Hot Toddy

DPC: 3 Labels to watch in 2013?

BB: Futureboogie (UK)

      Dirt Crew (Berlin)

      Correspondant (Paris/Cologne)

DPC: Memorable disco experience?
BB: Dimitri From Paris 6-hour disco set at U Hall last year.

DPC: If you could see one DJ in 2013, it would be... ?

BB: Dixon

DPC Bonus Question: Who is the Queen of Disco ?

BB: Sylvester ------> CORRECT !

Give Brian's most recent mix a listen. It’s smooth and full of mood-setting Disco and House flavor.....drink it up!

Stay tuned this week, as we’ve got more spotlights, interviews, and mixes from the DJs who will be providing the grooves for DPC relaunch party, February 6, at U Street Music Hall.
