About Mr. Bill:

Mr. Bill has been a leader in the audio production world for years. Beyond producing dazzlingly intricate originals, remixes, and collaborations in the glitch and IDM realms with other stars of the industry, his eagerness to share his massive library of technical know-how has made him just as sought-after for studio work as he is for highly energetic and crowd-pleasing live performances.

Bill Day has released six full-length studio albums, to-date, including 2013's double album, The Collaborative Endeavours, and 2014's Settling for Mediocrity. He has just released his most recent album Corrective Scene Surgery, a sprawling 28-track collaboration with longtime associate and graphic designer Funilab, which is being released as one single at a time. You can catch him on his biggest North American tour to date this fall with Circuit Bent.
