Greg Wilson began DJing back in 1975. A pioneer of mixing in the UK, becoming the first ‘dance music’ DJ hired for a regular weekly session at Manchester’s seminal club, Hacienda, Greg was the first to push the new electronic, post disco records coming out of New York to the UK audience, a sound he dubbed ‘Electro-Funk’. He created the first UK radio mixes for Piccadilly 261 in Manchester back in 1982, and in 1983 he was the first DJ to mix live on TV (The Tube)
Taking a break from the scene at the end of 1983, he returned in 2003 with his own website ‘electrofunkroots, documenting this crucial era in UK dance music. Greg also returned to the clubs, spinning at such renowned nights as Electric Chair, Horse Meat Disco, Fabric & Back 2 Basics! This has lead to many bookings across the continent (including a terrace appearance at the famous We Love Sundays session at Space), with a world tour in 2008 encompassing Japan, Australia, Brazil & the USA.
Since his return to the scene, Greg has literally been on fire. DJ magazine nominated him for an outstanding contribution award, as well as being named amongst their top twenty remixers of all-time. In January 2009 Greg’s reputation was enhanced even further with his Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1 becoming an instant classic, receiving universal acclaim (I have this mix myself and it really is that good! Eclectic isn’t the word, more like out of this world!!!).
