We've become lazy with our language. Words like legend are used to describe anyone with a laptop and the top 20 hits from this week's download charts. Greg Wilson is the real deal. He's been at the epicentre of the most important musical movements of the past 30 years, f...rom electro to house; hip hop to the wildly successful disco revival and re-edit explosion.
He was the first DJ to mix live on British TV and the first dance music DJ hired for a weekly residency at Manchester's seminal Hacienda club. He even taught a young Fatboy Slim how to scratch. Now Greg is more influential than ever. If he plays a tune, followers scramble to find it. His remixes are as near a guarantee of sales as you can get. His uncanny ability to know exactly what to play - and when - has taken him round the world.
Now it's bringing him to New Zealand for the first time.
