His real name is Sean Worthington Williams, but most people simply known him as Worthy – a master of production and performance, and a man who brings an unmatched level of energy to the dance floor.
Worthy's sound has been described as breakbeats with a mix of everything from future house to booty bass and techno. He honed his skills, learned electronic music and how to spin alongside Justin Martin, Claude VonStroke and Martin's brother, Christian (among others). It was when he moved out to San Francisco and they co-founded the Dirtybird soundsystem and record label that things really took off.
Worthy has graduated from playing dark club basements to touring the globe, having performed at renowned venues like Hive in Switzerland, Electric Pickle in Miami, Sankeys in the UK, and Mezzanine in San Francisco. Behind a soaring popularity, he has drawn capacity crowds at festivals like Ultra and and Burning Man. In fact, Urb Magazine named Worthy one of the Top DJ's To See at Burning Man back in 2011.
Worthy has an original sound that will amp up any crowd, always leaving the fans wanting more. As he is fond of saying, he wants "even the most skeptic hater's booty [to] shake." He's certainly accomplishing that goal, and his latest track "The Words," has another swirling house beat, with a bass-driven swing. Hear this and more at his upcoming gigs, including stops at the Lightning in a Bottle Pre-Party in Spin, California and at the Monarch Theatre in Arizona.
