Greg Wilson – DJ legend – The Loft, Brighton

Greg Wilson at The Loft BrightonWow – had the best night out in Brighton I’ve had in many years at the Greg Wilson gig at The Loft last Friday! For those who haven’t heard of him he was one of the first DJ’s to play at the Hacienda in Manchester, the first DJ to play live on TV (to Jules Holland on the Tube in ‘83), and one of the last to still use a reel to reel to do his own live edits, remixes and samples through his sets, a trick which not only makes each set unique, but also most of the tunes he plays unique.

We heard him play 3 equally stupendous electrofunk stomping sets on the Rizla stage at Bestival last year and recommend that you catch him while you can!

There’s a lot more about Greg on his website ( and examples of his work on his MySpace page (

Best tune of the night for me (and current top tune) is Atlantic Conveyor’s “We Are”, but you may have to hear Greg play it to really get it! (
