DjHistory.com relaunches after 20 years16 December 2022 - Press release
DjHistory is the brainchild of authors Bill Brewster and Frank Broughton; established in 1999 with the purpose of preserving dance music’s history and to create a fertile landscape for the DJs of the future. London based Material Music working with London based developers Wellmade have worked over the past twelve months to deliver the return of the much heralded website and community. With an interview from Dimitri From Paris, bounds of articles past and present and an ever growing community forum, if you have a passion for dance music then DJHistory is for you.
Material’s Sean Brosnan spoke of the return 'Community is a word that’s often thrown around casually with not much substance at the core. With DJ History there is a real, present and growing global community and we are so pleased to be preserving and developing a culture that is so close to our hearts’.
Bill Brewster is a freelance writer, well-known DJ, music consultant, dance music producer and co-owner of Forensic Records. Frank Broughton is a writer and copywriter, formerly Clubs Editor at TimeOut New York & Deputy Editor of i-D Magazine. Together they are the face behind London’s notorious Low Life parties and the authors of the hugely successful definitive history of the DJ, ‘Last Night a DJ Saved My Life’, which has just been published with a new edition and is available on the DJHistory website.
The site became the go-to community for music aficionados and wealth of dance music history, with many referencing the website as a key influence on their now successful career. The newly formed DJHistory is to once again provide a community space for the future of dance music, as well as a monthly podcast interviewing the great and good of dance music and in-depth articles exploring arcade DJ ephemera.
