Greg Wilson is a DJ that made history in Manchester during the 80s. He spread the verb of electro-funk, a mixture of Funk with robotic Kraftwerk sounds. Wilson was known for playing jazz funk records with residencies in clubs in New Brighton between 1975 and 1980. At the start of the eighties, Wilson moved to a residency at the legendary Wigan Pier, and with the jazz funk scene running out of steam, he searched for new sounds to play to the crowds. Despite these successes, in 1984 Wilson retired from DJing to face a new challenge: starting with the group Broken Glass, Wilson began producing records rather than playing them. He worked with the Ruthless Rap Assassins to produce their two albums and singles releases, whilst also working as a producer and remixer for other artists, such as Yello and Kiss AMC.
He returned back to Dj scene in 2003, and published two compilations called: “Credit to the edit” with great re-edits of famous disco and electro-funk songs. He was also the producer of Broken Glass a famous hiphop crew from Manchester, sampled by Prodigy in the Album “Always outgunned…”
