Greg Wilson

Few figures on the international dance music scene can wear the title of legend as aptly as Greg Wilson. The British DJ boasts a career spanning three decades, going back to the birth of house and his early days as a DJ at Manchester's seminal club the Hacienda. He also, however, carries on the authentic mixing art form to a greater degree than any of his contemporaries. To watch him go at it live on the decks is to take a trip back to the early days of garage, disco, and electro-funk, when vinyl records, beat-juggling, and old-school tape delay gave dance music a loose-limbed vitality rare in today's mechanized DJing. Wilson makes records speak, and he still uses his vintage Revox B77 reel-to-reel tape machine to expand his live sound to epic funky proportions.

More About

A mixing pioneer in the UK's clubs, Wilson introduced the early-'80s British generation to the new electronic, postdisco sounds coming out of New York. Old-timers might recall his famous 15 minutes on television in 1983 when he became the first DJ to mix live on British TV on The Tube. The past few years have seen Wilson tour widely across all continents, including, surprisingly, his first dates in cities such as New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. In January 2009, the release of his widely acclaimed Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1 revealed his craftsmanship and imaginative sounds to an eager new generation. Hardly one to fade away, Wilson has garnered a new relevance that seems timelier than ever, and Miami welcomes him for his WMC debut and an exclusive performance at the Electric Pickle March 24.
