Within the local Hip Hop and RNB scene very few people set new boundaries like DJ WILLI. It’s no surprise why he has been groomed as the fresh new face within the urban scene.
DJ WILLI has been spinning records and rocking dance floors around the country before he was legally allowed to be in the nightclub. At only 17 years old, he secured his first nightclub residecies, by the age of 21, his ability to engage the dance floor was no longer a secret, he was being sought to headline afterparties for Chris Brown, Jason Durelo, A$AP Ferg, Bone Thugs & Harmony, Wayans Brothers, Mac Miller, and Tinie Temper.
DJ Willi has also shared the performance stage with Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, Tyga, Ty Dolla $ign, Fabolous, Omarion, YG, DJ Mustard + Many More – all while maintaining weekly residencies & guest spots across the country.
During the week DJ WILLI leverages his years of industry experience together with his unshakable drive for success to elevate the DJ WILLI brand to new and exciting entertainment ventures. Over the last three years, Sydney-born DJ WILLI has been secretly building his empire; he owns and operates a publishing company, a record label, and tours international artists.
In 2015, DJ WILLI established record label Future Records. Wasting no time, DJ WILLI released his debut single with his co-collaborator BOW WOW. The two have co-produced one of the sexist and most successful R&B tracks to come out of our shores thats reached the dance floors of clubs around the world.
“TOO REAL” is no ordinary bump’n’grind track; the initial release attracted significant publicity and was featured on Channel 9 News, A Current Affair, Daily Telegraph, and The Daily Mail. Within the first week of release, the music video was added to MTV Australia & New Zealand along with Drake’s “Hotline Bling” as the only 2 records to be added that week for the RNB Genre.
Too Real peaked at number 2 on the Australian Rnb iTunes Charts, the single also crossed over internationally reaching number 37 on Hotnewhiphop.com and 35 on djcity.com most downloaded track for the month. As well as being played on radio stations across America, UK, Europe & Australia. You can currently find the record all over the internet and sitting on Bow Wow’s Vevo Channel and Spotify both with over 1 million plays.
Not too bad for a first release.
In 2016, following from the success of Too Real, DJ WILLI released a remake of the song he re-produced called “YOUR BODY” – this club banger has come to light through djs, social media, and the internet over the past 6 months, currently sitting on over 3 million plays on YouTube alone.
In the same year, DJ Willi toured internationally and signed to a booking agency in Dubai with plans to do regular shows within the Middle East. He is currently working on his Debut Album while pioneering his own sound and style of production, and with what we have heard already, its safe to say this is one to look out for.
The album already features collaborations with The Game, Bone Thugs & Harmony, Pretty Ricky, Bow Wow + Many More Top Secret Collobrations, just recently DJ Willi was booked as the National Tour DJ for the Tory Lanez Australia & New Zealand tour.
