What could be better then seeing Greg Wilson work his reel to reel DJ magic? The answer is obvious! Seeing him in a nicely intimate venue like 2022NQ. Well you are in luck because that’s exactly where you can see him on Saturday 17th August! fits that bill rather nicely thank you very much.

Greg played last at 2022NQ’s New Years Eve party, bringing his groove based music and homegrown edit set to a riotious climax and the team thought it was about time he came and gave another performance in their basement space.

Merseyside based DJ, and scene historian, Greg has been DJing and spreading the gospel 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 legendry 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 Nu-Disco scene.

Greg also recently started his new label ‘Schooled in the Classics‘ taking inspiration 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.

To get you into the spirit of the night here’s a mix Greg did at a little festival called Glastonbury a couple of weekends back…
