Label: Blü:Science
:Blu:Boy. aka (William Holzkopf)

2001-Present: DJ
2009-Present: Music Producer

Official :Blu:Boy. Soundcloud Profile

The Beginning
Born in Hinsdale, Illinois USA (on February 01, 1979) to a family of Artists, Musicians, and Carpenters. :Blu:Boy. found a liking for music starting at a young age of 7 with the Piano.
As his interest grew, :Blu:Boy. became a Rock music fan, anything and everything from early Rock, Swing, and Blues, to Modern Rock and Metal.
His tastes also were found in early, late, and post-modern Punk, as well as Industrial and the occasional Disco track.
Dance music, more specifically the Chicago House, Techno, and Trance movements of the '80's and 90's became an ever more present part of his daily life. And with access to Computers from the age of 7 on, :Blu:Boy. learned basic programming skills, and the wonders of Music and Graphic manipulation.
:Blu:Boy. had a passing interest in producing Mix-tapes through the early 1990's, but with the advent of better audio software and faster computers, his interest in digital music creation was born.

The Groove Years
Around 1999 :Blu:Boy. learned to DJ from his fellow peers of the time. The most influential in this arena being DJ RISC, Lars161, and Wezil21.
DJ RISC, was influential in coining the DJ Handle :Blu:Boy. and was instrumental in :Blu:Boy.'s advent into the world of Vinyl toting DJ's; with his all-night DJ multi-genre training Sessions.
:Blu:Boy. continued to DJ around Illinois, mostly at small or local events. Though having a great love for music he was still more focused during the Early 2000's on Event Production, for he didn't see a potential for a living with just DJ'ing alone. He worked with companies such as PGP: Positive Groove Productions, Catalytic Souls, and AP: Acomplis Productions.

The Present Future
By 2005, :Blu:Boy. began looking into music production again as another outlet for his talent. Though, (due to life's gambles), it was not until 2009 with Cerebro that he pushed out his first professional Single.
2010 saw his 2nd Single and first EP come to light for it's 2011 release, and 2012 saw the release of his second EP.

Leisurely Thoughts
:Blu:Boy. Tells it straight on why he fell in love with the Electronic sound; saying,
“I found Dance music and the Electronic genre as a whole to be a most pertinent sound for my generation. I could hear all the Blues, Jazz and Tribal influences in the modern electronic sound and wondered what I could do myself to make this sound even better.”
:Blu:Boy. Considers artist like Naw-T-Boy Nardi of Chicago, Tiësto, Paul Oakenfold, Armin Van Helden, Armin Van Buuren , and Brian 'Mix' Middleton, 2 Cool Chris, John '00' Flemming, Diesel Boy and Julian Jumpin' Perez as some of his mainstream Influences.
He let's us in on what really got him hooked, “I love Rock music, and am a huge fan of the Industrial sound. In fact it is Industrial Music and late '80's Dance that truly got me hooked for my later love of the Electronic.”
And yet :Blu:Boy.'s current style probably would not have seen the light of day, here he explains, “I originally came into the modern era of electronic sound via Progressive House, it wasn't until I had those late night sessions with DJ RISC that I started to see a whole Universe of sound that I was completely ignoring. And I originally absolutely hated Trance, I didn't understand it one bit; but now it is by far my most favorite sound. It is so moldable and undefinable... you can do so much with it and you're not stuck to one specific sound.”
Music is a fundamental part of his life, :Blu:Boy. expresses this with definition, “I'd hate to sound corny, but music really saved my life. I consider it to be the breath for our Soul's and I can't see my life without.” He continues to say, “...This is my passion and I hope to continue doing better and greater things with it.”

That Blutronic Sound
Currently producing sounds such as House, Trance, (Dark)Ambient-​Minimal, and Industrial music.

    I don't think I have heard smooth jazz intertwined with Dubstep sounds, (though I could be wrong), up until this point&rt;

    After listening through at first I was unsure of where this track was going, yet I noticed how intricately and how well thought out this track is.

    It seems to be a bit of its own beast, (Which is a good thing), I like different and for Dubstep in general it has become laden by its own success and I haven't heard anything that could be considered new and or different within the genre, Breaks had similar issues in the past but seems to continually reinvent itself&rt;

    DnB is a favorite of mine but meshing these three styles together gives it a bit of a GOA, Turntableist edge while keeping with it's modern upbringing.

    This style is to me at least fairly unique and I would like to hear more of this method and sound.

    Their is potential here and I am willing to help spread this sound.
