Bad Boy Bill’s tour for his first ever artist – album stopped in the District Saturday night at Fur Nightclub. After 25 years in the game it’s hard to believe ‘The Album’ is his first. Hey, better late than never. With elements of rock, hip-hop and house, Bill’s set at Fur truly represented those things that have influenced his album, style and career.

Being schooled in the art of DJing, Bill was gracious enough to bust out the vinyl for a song. He ‘wicki wicki wickied’ to the max, a talent rarely found in electronic DJs. His skills were evidenced by his intense focus; tweaking knobs, speeding things up, slowing them down, and the way he manipulated the faders. His intro was blazing. Bill is all about the DJ skills. He throws a great party.

In order to remain relevant for so long in an ever-changing industry, Bill has had to adapt. From the days when Frankie Knuckles first started this thing we call house, to the sounds of today, Bill has been able to mix, match and throw down with the times. He slammed a remix of ‘Satisfaction’ and then Afrojack’s ‘Zeggie,’ which samples ‘A Millie.’ He cranked out ‘One’ by the Swedish House Mafia, and dope remixes of Daft Punk’s ‘Put Your Hands Up in the Air’ and IDMA tune of the year ‘Hey Hey’ by Dennis Ferrer. We heard a remix of Empire of the Sun – Walking on a Dream and then Bill rocked out with his track ‘Fast Life’ and David Guetta and Kid Cudi’s ‘Memories.’

There are few artists in any genre who can say their career has spanned a quarter century. Bad Boy Bill is on that list and on Saturday night at Fur he showed Club Glow why.
