Never stopping and never settling down, Greg Pidcock’s unique blend of house techno and progressive vibes has been developing around the world since his love affair with dance music began in his childhood, discovering Prodigy and Underworld when he was seven. Born in 1988, this tri-national’s (CAN/UK/USA) family moved from Calgary to Bangkok when he was 6 years old. It was as this journey began that Greg first saw the film Hackers and heard the techno beats that would define the rest of his life.
Jump to Quito, Ecuador 2001 where Greg first begins to experiment with Fruity Loops and other early DJ software. Before long his family moved to Lima, Peru where he begins DJing electronic music events at just 15 years old. The cutting edge progressive and tech sounds being played at the time were a big influence, and Greg was frequently sneaking out of his house to catch the top notch international and local talent in Lima. At 16, his family relocated to India, forcing Greg to adapt to the house music deprived streets of Mumbai. Not giving up, Greg trained hard and joined forces with India’s premier dance music promoters: Submerge. This led to his first club sets in India, which gave him a clean slate to really find his personal groove, and get people dancing. It was lucky his parents were so supportive of the late nights and drum beats from such a young age!
When high school ended, University began, landing Greg in Montreal to study Digital Media & Cyber Art at Concordia University. Montreal has opened many new doors and developed his sound even further; from playing small underground loft parties with local heroes to playing with legends like James Holden, Layo & Bushwacka!, Marc Romboy, M.A.N.D.Y., Green Velvet, Hector Romero, Stephane K, John Creamer, Angel Moraes, and Tone Depth. Mere years before, Greg was buying Tone’s records, now it was time to manage his new label: Bad Pony Records. He also started a very promising production duo with Bobby Savage, which will be providing him with new ammo as the months pass.
He holds monthly residencies at Cherry and Salon Daomé – two of the city’s premier house music venues. He has also played around Montreal at: Stereo Nightclub, Igloofest, Velvet, Club UN, Circus Afterhours, Business, Academy, Jupiter Room, Se7en, Bar D’Hiver, Terrasse Bonsecours, as well as long list of loft parties.
Greg Pidcock’s sound now revolves around eclectic dance music, a relentless search for high quality beats and a drive to keep the dance floor on their toes.
