Will McGiven is a Derby, UK based DJ known for his eclectic Constellations Radio Shows on www.soulandjazz.com every Friday. Will has DJ’d all over the UK as well as an appearance supporting the great Marcus Miller for the North Sea Jazz Festival at The Bird Club, Rotterdam.
Will has been a massive fan of the Discus label for many years now, proclaiming it to be “The most deep and diverse label anywhere on the planet”.

He only uses his DJ software’s reverb, pitch slider and echo effects to create the unique sound scape presented here.

You can buy your CD or DL either direct from Discus Music or from Bandcamp. The prices and the postage charges are the same on both sites, but Bandcamp will charge you VAT on DL only purchases. Whichever site you choose, the DL element is delivered to your Bandcamp collection.
Discus pays a 10% commission to Bandcamp on sales there, but if you buy direct from Discus Music we get to keep 100% – which of course we prefer! But in the end, please buy from whichever site suits you best.
