Will Clarke’s beats and bass are as big as his beard. Another Bristol talent, like fellow dirtybird signing Eats Everything, he earned his DJ chops as a resident at Kanya in Ibiza before starting his own South West party, Cut The Rug. Having played alongside the likes of Visionquest, Carl Cox and Boys Noize, he’s grown into a headliner in his own right, while a dedication to the studio has seen his work released via labels such as Anabatic, Exploited and Southern Fried. Clarke’s DJ sets are guaranteed to standout thanks to his arsenal of edits, Annie Mac recently releasing his re-beefed version of ’80s electro classic ‘Al-Naafiysh’ by Hashim as part of her Free Music Monday series.
Joining them is Billy Kenny, who hails from Leeds but now lives in Germany. Despite being an ex-pat, however, his sound still draws on garage as much as house and techno, multiple appearances on Rinse FM proving his UK credentials. When not releasing on Sweat It Out on dirtybird he co-runs This Ain’t Bristol. This label proved the Launchpad for his biggest track to date, the bitch house sampling ‘Work Me’, recently remixed into a disco fury by Justin Jay and given away as a free download to celebrate This Ain’t Bristol reaching 20,000 SoundCloud followers.
