GREG WILSON, BLACK BOX, BELFAST
As part of this years NI Science Festival we are delighted to present Greg Wilson
at Belfast's Black Box on 25th Feb 2017.
For those of you who have been in A Parallel Universe the past 30 years, 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. His Electrofunkroots and Being A DJ blogs have become an online touchstone for dance music enthusiasts worldwide, whilst his new label, Super Weird Substance sees his focus return to original recordings, as well as live events, known as ‘Super Weird Happenings’.
