Mr. Bill is going to teleport crowds at Darkstar on December 16th! Mr. Bill is a rising star in the space bass genre, having garnered hundreds of thousands of listens on streaming platforms. Space bass is a broad genre, and, without official definitions, I personally classify Mr. Bill as a beats-based space bass artist. While some artists in the genre focus on wave bass and creating unusual sounds, Mr. Bill excels in both, with a strong emphasis on intricate rhythms. These beats may not align with ‘classic’ dance music, but they undeniably represent an artistic endeavor with a massive amount of effort invested, and Mr. Bill ranks among the best.
Mr. Bill’s ascent is relentless, and he shows no sign of looking back. Recently, he released one of my favorite Mr. Bill songs, “The Art of Mr. Bill 5,” a track he created during the Art of Mr. Bill Ableton Tutorials. This song boasts incredible production, building up swiftly and featuring a fast-paced, wave-like electronic drop that seamlessly blends various sounds into a cohesive work of art. Additionally, he collaborated with Ganja White Night this year on “Billdozer,” a track that marries intensity with intricate beat structures, firmly establishing itself as a space bass industry staple. My personal favorite of his is “Porn Funk,” a funky space bass piece with high-pitched elements that perfectly complement the beat structure, featuring subtle future bass elements. This song has been on repeat for a while.
It’s inevitable that Mr. Bill will one day headline major events. He consistently refines his sound and production, showcasing a true mastery of the genre. Catch him at Darkstar on December 16th—get your tickets here!
