Brian Raymond Crowley. Born July 7, 1977
DJ BC took an interest in music at the young age of six, thanks to having two much older brothers and a sister. His beginnings found him enjoying many variations of rock especially Punk and Death Metal. Once he began attending school, he was exposed to different influences such as 80’s Synth-Pop and Hip Hop. BC had always felt outcast from people, and music was always a comfort to him. Whether it was lyrics that made him feel understood, or melodies that put him at peace, music was his most inspiring escape.
As the 80’s later progressed he discovered the styles of Goth and Industrial music. This was heavily influential to him and later led to the musical project Aegrosomnia (latin for “a sick man’s dreams). In 1989, BC’s older brother bought him a guitar and he immediately began plucking away. He practiced as often as possible and became versatile and well learned.
In 1991, BC attended his first rave in a dingy warehouse under the Colfax bridge in Denver. The new sound he found with the lights and crowd was compelling for him beyond words. He had never imagined such a gathering with such an amazing sound. While he very much enjoyed the different styles of electronic music, he was not very impressed by the DJ’s. They only seemed to blend the tracks in a very basic way. He had little interest in spinning, but entertained the thought that if he ever did, he would incorporate samples from horror films and such to keep people on edge.
Throughout the 90’s he had formed and joined several bands which were Punk or Metal. During this time he had learned to play bass and piano. Never really finding his visions expressed, he began working on the project Aegrosomnia which later became Burn Circuit due to a trademark infringement. In this project he found himself channeling his influences in Goth, Metal and Industrial. The tracks he was building included samples from movies, electronic drum machines, synthesizers, keyboards, bass, guitar and his own voice.
After he was finished with this project, he stepped away from the local live music scene and got back into the EDM scene. The vibes were much different and a relief from the aggression that often took place in the metal/goth bars.
In 2002, BC saw DJ Bad Boy Bill who, from the very start of his set incorporated scratching, beat juggles and sampling with house music that BC only thought could be done in Hip Hop. After going to various parties never being impressed with anyone’s mixing abilities, he now saw that it was possible in electronic music to go beyond just a simple blend in mixing. Right then and there he decided he must be a DJ. The following spring, he picked up a pair of Technics 1200’s, a Pioneer 600 and a small variety of Break Beats and House. On day one he had no issue with beat matching due to a history of producing electronic beats with synthesizers. But it took about 6 months for him to polish his skills and feel comfortable spinning out live. It took an additional two years to really get scratches and beat juggles to a place where he would perform them publicly. BC found his comfort zone spinning German Hard Acid Trance and Hard Techno and stayed in this realm for many years. He built a wonderful fan base with these genres.
In his first year he began performing at house parties and landed a Thursday night residence at a club called Kazmos with his partner DJ Random Intent. Under Nice Guys Ent, they promoted this into a successful night and kept with it for eighteen months. During this time, BC was playing shows with production companies such as Floor Bangers and Ryan Dykstra Nightlife.
Over the next years, BC was resident with several clubs, played out for many different production companies and held residence with Big Johnson Entertainment, Utopia Beats, Sound Pharmacy, ECNIC and Blackout Productions. He has headlined many shows and has traveled throughout the United States to play. He has produced several tracks and is currently working on more.
In 2008, he began to experiment in other genres like techno and minimal. He played this for two years before taking a year long break. in 2011, he made a comeback with a surprising change in to hard, dark Drum & Bass. While this genre is his passion, he also spins many of the electronic styles, while also playing Hip Hop, 80’s, Rock and many others.
