A UK legend talks about the early days.
As one of the first to mix together records in the UK, it's fair to say that Greg Wilson's influence on electronic music is assured. But what's more important, perhaps, is Wilson's dedication to the preservation of dance music history and culture. He's been on a tireless quest since his un-retirement just a few years ago to explain the roots of contemporary house and techno-in addition to rocking crowds around the world. RA's Todd L. Burns recently sat down with Wilson to talk about DJing in the late '70s and the early '80s at legendary haunts like Wigan Pier and The Hacienda.
