Chicago-raised producer Willy Joy is set to blow up fast, and has earned a reputation as one of the rising stars to watch in the electronic music scene. Introduced to music at a young age, Willy grew up playing the trumpet and graduated university with a degree in music and multimedia. At the same time, he was immersing himself in the rich dance and hip-hop culture of the Windy City. He used this diverse background to create his unique breed of bass music, rapidly changing styles and tempos with ease while always mainyaing an ecstatic, hands-in-the-air dancefloor.
After Chicago, Willy set his sights on California. From there it didn't take long for people to catch wind of his infectious productions and legenday DJ sets. Willy was quickly remixed by producers such as Dillon Francis and Flosstradamus, and was asked to co-produce a song with Major Lazer for their "Free the Unicerse" album. Willy is also a part of Brillz' "Twonk Team prudction crew and is planning multiple collaborations with members of the heavy hitting team. He has since released records with Mad Decent/Good Enuff, Datsik's Firepower Records and Ultra Records as well as remixes for A-Trak and a mix for the massive Diplo & Friends radio show on BBC Radio 1.
