Billy Disciple has been at forefront of electronic music culture since 1994. Over the span of his career, Billy has performed in countless states along the east coast and has shared the decks with some of the industry’s most prolific artists, including Terry Lee Brown Junior, Kevin Saunderson, Christian Smith, Josh Wink, Nic Fanciulli, Chloe Harris, and many others. Some noteworthy venues for Billy include the Limelight, Sullivan Room, Crobar NYC, Bar 13, Club Firestone, and Club H2O to name a few.
Presently, Billy has shifted his focus slightly from performing to A&R duties for his first record label project, Undulate Recordings. Undulate is the brainchild of Billy’s best mate and fellow Sullivan Room resident, Al Alvarez (Deepspell). The duo once served as the driving force behind People NYC, and were responsible for organizing several of the most innovative events to hit New York, including the New York City debuts of Pig & Dan and D-Formation.
As the A&R for Undulate, Billy will have a large hand in developing the label’s vision and musical direction – a task that his vast experience has prepared him well for.
Also, Billy recently partnered up with Stranjjur’s Kev Obrien to launch the Stranjjur NYC monthly event at Bar 13. To date, their collaboration has been a rousing success due to recent performances by Till von Sein, Carlo Lio, and Chris Manilk; with Bearweasel, Spencer Parker, and Alex Niggemann confirmed for future dates. If you are ever stateside in NYC, be sure to keep an eye out for one of their Stranjj events.
