Billy Kristal is 1/2 of the DJ duo "12 Inches Under"
Everything started from the fact, that both of them really love music and adore partying. After falling in love with parties, djs and those round black 12 inches spinning on the decks, Billy Kristal started collecting vinyls and was trying to learn the art of djing. One night, after the party, both of them ended at Billy Kristal's place. They started to spin his records together and soon realized that their musical taste is very similar and DJing together is much more fun than doing it alone. The next day Killl My Disco bought his first vinyls...
After spending a year spinning records in bedroom, trying to learn djing, duo decided that it's time to start playing public. In 2009 they started their first parties at Cafe de Paris, soon moved to Banzai bar. After getting positive support they started their famous parties Never Go With The Hippie To ŠMC at ŠMC cafe, the place they really love. Soon after that they got noticed and began to dj in the clubs like Opium, WOO, Gorky. In 2011 the duo was voted to the TOP 5 of best new DJs/artists category in DJSCENE BEST 2011 election. The word is that these elections was very antidemocratic, but they still like this achievement. Also that year they travelled to Berlin, to play their first DJ set abroad.
Billy Kristal and Killl My Disco's musical taste was influenced by the labels like Kompakt, Bpitch Control and the artists/DJs like DJ Koze, Michael Mayer, Superpitcher, Optimo DJs, Apparat and the local favorites Partyzanai DJs, to name a few.
In their sets the duo mixes 4/4 electronics, minimal/tech house, electro or techno etc., and is open to many new sounds, bleeps and noises...
