Greg Gillis, the highly sought after cut-and-paste artist, has been turning heads with his digitally reworked versions of mainstream music for the last five years. Since the release of his latest album Night Ripper, Gillis has been in demand by what seems like every promoter around the country, and has recently started gaining an international reputation as well. Despite controversy surrounding the album, which samples some fairly current hits and has already been deemed "infringement" by one CD manufacturer, Gillis carries on, armed with laptop and some serious party vibes.
Night Ripper is out now on Illegal Art.
