Biography

Greg Fenton has DJ’ed, produced and written about music for the last 26 years.

He began life as a DJ in 1985 playing Belfast club The Orpheus, as well as notorious after-hours venue The Plaza. June 1989 saw Greg move to Manchester and it was there he held residencies with the likes of Mike Pickering (Circus), Jon Da Silva (Spacefunk), and Justin Robertson (Spice/ Konspiracy) by the early nineties. He was also cited by The Chemical Brothers as an influence in their Channel 4 documentary, Block Rockin’ Beats. From there he went on to DJ extensively across the UK at clubs like Golden, Love to Be and Shindig, along with European dates including Paradiso (Amsterdam) for i-D magazine.

Greg’s funky choice of music has also supplied the soundtrack for many of Manchester’s late-night bars including Prague V and Barca. Prior to this Greg was resident for 2 years at Factory Records’ flagship bar Dry 201, which resulted in a Saturday night residency at the world renowned Hacienda.

He also reviews music, which he began back in 1991 for DMCs weekly Update magazine (formerly Mix-Mag Update) and has reviewed for i-DJ, M8 and Our House Mag among others.

Greg’s participation in UK Dance culture has not only occurred through DJing and writing but by his production work. Debuting with Silver City “Love Infinity” which was Essential New Tune on Pete Tongs Essential Selection the song achieved nine consecutive weeks airplay. He has since co-produced as Soularis releasing five singles on Chicago’s seminal Guidance Recordings and has gone on to record for labels such as Hed Kandi, with new releases due on Mcr labels MUM and Mad-Hatter.
