Rob Willis is a British electronic and dance music producer.
Now working out of his studio in the heart of Berlin’s Kreuzberg district. His style combines the energy of his adopted city with the sound of Rob’s heroes in the UK: the Chemical Brothers, Fatboy Slim and M.I.A.
In 2016 Rob continues to push his sound, with his remixes achieving support from some major blogs around Europe, and an original release called ‘Break Free’ appearing on the Club Sounds vol. 76 compilation. Several more single releases are planned for the next few months, so watch this space!
Rob’s roots though are as a DJ. Rob started whilst at boarding school, doing odd jobs to pay for records and equipment. After leaving, he moved to Barbados where he DJed in clubs around the island, and then to Leeds, where he was named DJ of the year. He then continued to play gigs around the UK, warming up for Annie Nightingale, Pendulum and the Stanton Warriors.
Then returning to his hometown of London, Rob did a course in Sound Engineering at the legendary Alchemea, learning from legends of the trade such as Haydn Bendall (Kate Bush, Alan Parson’s Project) and Marcel van Limbeek (Tori Amos). Rob then moved to Berlin, where he began working in Phlexton Studios as a sound engineer and mixer, as well as producing beats for a variety of German Hip Hop acts – including features on a top-ten album – and playing keys in the electro-pop duo DEON.
