The Essential Mix 30/1 (7/2): Greg Wilson

This week we welcome Legendary DJ pioneer Greg Wilson to the Essential Mix. Greg Wilson was one of the first DJs in the UK to mix two records together and came to prominence by championing New York’s emerging Electro-Funk sound. He was a resident at the legendary Wigan Pier in the 1970’s and 80’s.  And in 1983 he became the first DJ to host a weekly dance music night at Manchester’s Hacienda.

He stopped DJing in 1984, but picked up his headphones again in 2003, playing at the likes of The Electric Chair, Fabric and Basics to widespread acclaim. Using both a laptop and a reel-to-reel tape player, Greg’s mixing and customised re-edits continue to push the boundaries of how music is mixed.
