Probably you already found out that we are preparing for the 1 year celebration and our special guest is Mick Wills [Nation, Minimal Rome, Gigolo Records – Stuttgart, DE]. This will be his second visit to Sibiu (after 5 years) and his first in Cluj-Napoca. Many words can be said about the man who started his djing career almost 25 years ago and has released his first EP back in 2001, on International Deejay Gigolo Records, but we leave the words to the only three Romanians with releases on Gigolo. Instead, we present an exclusive dj mix from Mick recorded live in Jena, Germany, on July 24th this year.
Enjoy and “Dance like nobody is watching”.
“What struck me first at Mick Wills is his true dedication and passion, the obsession in collecting records; rare and unknown. He visits all annual European vinyl fairs, with a portable battery-powered pick-up and digs up unknown rare house and italo records. He also impressed me with his the incredible mixing technique, he is a true master … ”
“The visionary Mick Wills is one of the 100% pure dedicated electronic music activists, which spins discs the same way he lives his life, and that makes each of his sessions a real experience. You’ll find attitude as its best, in a large variety of seduction electronic music genres (electro, chicago house , techno, italo disco, ebm and TB303). He signed with record labels like : Minimal Rome, Gigolo Records, Space Factory, Automatik-Datamatik, Psycho Thrill and others. Recently he joined the dj rooster from Nation record label based in Chicago, alongside artists like: Traxx, James T. Cotton, D’Marc Cantu, Naughty Wood, Nancy Fortune and others.
