Sunday, April 22: GREG WILSON
Greg Wilson is regarded as one of the most important figures on the UK dance scene where he was instrumental in introducing new electronic, post-disco records coming out of New York in the early 1980s. The sound, he dubbed 'Electro-Funk', was in return profoundly influenced by the German electro-pioneers Kraftwerk.
