We've been puzzling for days to find the right DJ to represent deathmetaldiscoclub #050, our second milestone in the reboot of our guest mix series. Eventually we could call only one name that would satisfy all of our members needs and tastes and represent the deathmetaldiscoclub aesthetic in a perfect way. His name is Mick Wills. He was happy to indulge and we are extremely excited that time has finally arrived for you to check out the result. This really is a perfect fit!
Mick Wills has been one of DJ Hell's Gigolo Records greatest stalwarts for years and he's also an important representative of Traxx's legendary Nation. And there is great reason for this. Mick is one of those very few artists that has always stayed true to his taste. He is absolutely one of the hardest working music diggers in the industry. His selecting skills are truly one of a kind and the combination of his knowledge and technique result into extremely explosive dj sets. Whether it's techno, wave, chicago or italo, he is able to blend it all together into one very consistent story. In fact, Mick is the definition of consistent. He will always give his 200% when it comes to music.
The same goes for his productions, he's been gradually releasing since 2001 (on labels like Tabernacle, Gigolo International, phil e and Minimal Rome). He'd rather release something of amazing quality, than having thirty singles out there that are mediocre. He is not the guy that you'll find on the cover of Mixmag and maybe it is for the better. Because one thing is certain, when it comes music, every choice Mick makes is carefully considered.
Mick Wills has just released a furious remix on Uncanny Valley's Rat Life records and he's also got an amazing new remix for Andreas Gehm's Elec pt. 1 project coming out on Signals. That one could hit the market anytime now.
For now, enjoy his deathmetaldiscoclub #050 anniversary DJ mix and don't forget to check out some of the links below!
