Billy Johnston is not your typical US techno artist: some of this might have to do with the fact that he comes from South Florida; yet another part of it might have to do with his extensive background in jazz, swing, and big band music from the 1930’s.
Ultimately, however, what sets Billy apart are his shuffling versions of techno & Ep musical stylings that have garnered him accolades in both “Techno” & Tech House” music. While focused on deep & driving techno/tech house, Billy’s projects always show his twisted sound: Dark & penetrating grooves with stories full of drama & surprise that cut through the core of rhythm.
As of late, Billy Johnston has been doing some major “Wheeling & Dealing” and his recent “Ep” release’s have been tearing up dancefloors from Milan to Tokyo, and everywhere in between. He is part of the new school of up and coming acts that incorporate all facets of marketing & promotions for each release by helping the labels & clubs he is affiliated with. The reputation he has earned is A+.
Finally, his release’s & collaborations with Gennaro Mastrantonio between 2009-2017 have garnered serious underground success. In a few short years achieving three top ten “BEATPORT HITS” in Techno, Tech House charts, & also been supported by Richie Hawtin, Nicole Moudaber, Maya Jane Coles, Umek, Phil Kieran, Namito, Josepth Capriati, Sian, Alexi Delano, Paco Osuna, Adam Beyer, Stephan Bodzin, DJ Hell, Anderson Noise, Tony Rohr, Dustin Zahn, Gary Beck, Sasha Carrasi, Dandi & Ugo, Slam, & many, many more!
