The fabled U.K. DJ comes to NYC plays the Bunker. Added bonus: A great Wilson set!
Northern England’s Greg Wilson, a resident at such famed venues as Manchester’s Wigan Pier and the Haçienda, spent the early ’80s as the U.K.’s top purveyor of a sound he termed “electrofunk”—the kind of electronic postdisco, prehouse dance music that was coming out of New York clubs like the Paradise Garage, the Roxy and Danceteria. In 1984, at the height of his powers, Wilson quit deejaying; but in the ’00s, he came back strong, playing more than ever, forging an array of spectacular reedits (notably the Credit to the Edit series) and running the Electrofunkroots website. On August 25, Wilson comes to NYC to headline the Bunker bash at 12-Turn-13.
