What is better then seeing Greg Wilson work his reel to reel DJ magic? The answer is, seeing him in a nice and intimate venue, and 2022NQ fits that bill rather nicely thank you very much.
Greg played last New Years eve, bringing his groove based music and homegrown edit set to a riotious climax at 2022NQ and the team thought it was about time he repeated that performance.
Merseyside based DJ, and scene historian, Greg has been DJing and spreading the gospal of black oriantated music since 1975, taking a 20 year sabatical from DJing between 1984 and the end of 2003. Greg has been influential in the UK DJ scene from appearing on the Tube, teaching a young Norman Cook aka Fat Boy Slim how to scratch, writing sleeve notes and contributing music to the seminal UK Street Sounds album and DJing at the legendary Hacienda nightclub in Manchester.
His ‘Credit to the Edit’ series of releases on the Tirk record label have been instrumental in pushing the groove based sound to the masses and forging the NuDisco scene.
Apart from working as a DJ, Wilson also writes on various aspects of dance / black culture with articles published in magazines and webzines including Wax Poetics, Clash, Grand Slam, Strobelight Honey and Discopia.
Greg has also recently started his new label, ‘Schooled in the Classics’. Taking inspirations from his illustrious past to record new tracks. The intention is to channel the spirit of those times gone by into new material, not simply try and re-create what went before. Tipping its hat to New York pioneers such as Shep Pettibone, Francois Kevorkian, Larry Levan, John ‘Jellybean’ Benitez and Tee Scott who’s experimental approach to dance music production has gone on to forge and inspire the current Dance music industry.
