Various Greg Wilson’s 2020 Vision
Carrying around a title like “the godfather of electro-funk” is no easy feat. Add to that a return to DJing after a 20-year hiatus and you’re risking a serious case of self-parody. But Greg Wilson has proven himself with this mix, and it feels like another victory lap for the Manchester edit master. Culling tracks primarily from the 2020 roster (from Fred Everything, Random Factor, et al.), Wilson rotates through electro, house, disco, and funk with reel-to-reel overdubs and a fine ear for pacing. However, the triumph here equally belongs to 2020 Vision. Tracks like Nick Chacona’s ambitious “Through the Door” and Spirit Catcher’s gleaming “Sweet Deal” are flooring. 2020 would have been right at home the Haçienda.
