Greg Wilson is a Merseyside-based DJ who started out during the seventies disco era and played a pivotal role in the development of UK club culture in the early eighties during his tenure at Wigan Pier and Manchester’s Legend plus The Haçienda, with his upfront selection of NYC electro-funk grooves. Focussing on production over the next decade he worked on the seminal ‘UK Electro’ in ’84, and produced two critically acclaimed albums for the Ruthless Rap Assassins in ‘90 and ’91.
Returning to DJing in 2003, Greg connected with a younger audience and began to spread his reach wider than ever. His first two ‘Credit To The Edit’ compilations did much to cement this reputation as did his 2009 BBC Radio One Essential Mix, named one of the top 10 of all time, whilst Rolling Stone Magazine listed it as one of the definitive 25 online mixes, dubbing Greg ‘one of the earth-moving dons of U.K. dance.’ His Electrofunkroots and Being A DJ blogs have become an online touchstone for dance music enthusiasts worldwide, whilst in 2015 he received the Outstanding Contribution award from DJ Mag, who invited him to write a monthly column highlighting some of dance history’s finest DJs, records, labels and clubs.
Greg has DJ’d throughout the world including globally renowned events / clubs like Glastonbury and WOMAD Festivals, Ministry Of Sound and Fabric in London, Space Ibiza, Berghain Berlin and ADE Amsterdam, to name but a few.
