Bell Towers is no stranger to the night. Moving curiously through dance music as a DJ and producer since 2009, BT has had four years of fun with cult Melbourne party Bamboo Musik (RIP); a successful relocation to the Northern Hemisphere (finally landing in Berlin) and gigs all over the world; a long-standing NTS residency and dibs on the name Dance Music Show; an ever-evolving discography; and credits for show music at New York, Paris, London and Shanghai Fashion Weeks that has further shaped his musical sensibility.
BTs DJ sets flirt with 4/4 basement house, flimsy synthetic pop, cheap and chic funk, and emotional sunrise burnouts. He connects the dots and gives the floor his own idiosyncratic interpretation of dance music history. You mightve heard the tracks the first time around, but the point here is that you havent heard them played like this.
In his eight years as an artist/producer an output he self-describes as file under 12, intentionally laconic BT has wriggled on various shades of house, 80s influenced pop and sample disco, released across respected labels like Public Possession, Internasjonal and Cocktail Damore the latter also being an infamous party series now serving his DJ skills as a regular new home.
