After a tip-top show in February with Chicago legend Jamie 3:26 as well as a short break due to sybirian snow blizzards we're eager to pull out some grooves and get back to some serious bizness…
Red Greg (Melodies International / Moton Recordings)
Darren is a London based Dj / Record collector known to many as Red Greg. He grew up in East London and got his first taste of DJ'ing around '85 after gathering a few records and listening to local sound systems and mix tapes. Shortly afterwards he started playing Funk, Soul, Rare Groove, House and Acid, However his love affair with Disco & Boogie didn't properly begin until the late 80s.With an ever-growing collection of vinyl and a passion for the underground, he met DJ Louis Heel at a London gig and the two launched their respected club night, 'Ebonite'.
Since Darren has released his own edits / productions under the Red Greg alias on labels such as the highly sort after Z Records, Moton Recordings, Marcel Vogels own Lumberjacks in Hell, some of which have been going for very high prices indeed. In recent times has become a staple in the Melodies International crew along side Floating Points and Mafalda. The label has re-pressed rarities such as 'Aged in Harmony — Your a Melody' which was released in a lovely triple 7" pack with full insert for the collectors out there as well as 'Tomorrows Peoeple — Open Soul'!, Both regularly played by likes of Sadar Bahar.
Darren's depth of knowledge, diggin' passion and technical ability has led to his reputation as one of UKs best Disco / Boogie selectors getting bookings at Festivals / Parties such as Southern Soul Festival (Montenegro), Dekmantel, Stevie Wonderland, Dimensions and many more!
