Billy Turner is the rising UK artist whose bracing strain of techno is fast gaining recognition. From Luke Slater to Sigha, Edit Select to Norman Nodge, this young DJ and producer is finding favour from an array of figureheads.
After some time out travelling the world, Turner entered an intense period of reflection that coincided with record collecting and self-taught production. He found himself channelling a myriad of styles in his music, and what emerged was a steely and visceral techno sound far beyond his years. His tracks & thunderous DJ style have earned him sets at Berlin’s Chalet club, London institution Fabric & Newcastle’s Digital among others.
2018 saw Turner release several projects, including remixes for Anja Schneider, Dense & Pika and Arnaud Rebotini, plus his debut on the Vinyl-only label DC LTD. He also launched his own Imprint ‘Nocturnal Subconscious’, and joined the Kneaded Pains crew on their label nights at European clubs Toffler & Ampere.
Fully into 2019, Billy has released on labels such as Edit Select & Mote-Evolver. Next up is a second EP on Edit Select plus records on Kaiser’s KSR imprint and Wrong Assessment’s AWRY in late 2019. The next few years will undoubtedly see this precocious talent reach even greater heights…
