DJ Greg Wilson’s ‘Reels of Steel’ at Band on the Wall, Oct 2011

I’ve recently been working with the seminal Mancunian music venue Band on the Wall, helping them to showcase the unique venue and their facilities.

When I started this project I was particularly keen to capture one legendary North West DJ, Greg Wilson, in action as I’d originally shot him back in 2008 at the Electrospective event in Islington Mill. Ever since then I wanted to catch him in full effect, with his trusty Revox reel-to-reel tapes onstage.

I’d seen Greg back in April for the first outing of his new ‘Reels of Steel’ project, which he’s since taken on tour, so his recent return to Band on the Wall for Dan Soulsmith’s ‘Stretch Disco’ night gave me the perfect opportunity to snap him as he played to a buzzing crowd. It was a great night, and as you can see, the place was jumping. Check out Greg’s mix from the night on Soundcloud here to immerse yourself in the full experience…
