Greg Wilson is a Merseyside-based DJ who 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 and 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 across the world. His two ‘Credit To The Edit’ compilations did much to cement this reputation as did his 2009 BBC Radio One Essential Mix, voted one of the top 10 of all time, whilst Rolling Stone Magazine voted it 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 his monthly DJ Magazine column highlights some of dance history’s finest DJs, records, labels and clubs. His multi-media label, Super Weird Substance sees his focus return to original recordings, as well as live events, known as ‘Super Weird Happenings’.
