How do you listen to music?

Greg Wilson is one of my favorite djs/producers and I was lucky enough to watch/listen to him live in Athens about 3 or 4 years ago. I don’t easily enjoy music out there in bars in the last years -perhaps I’m getting old and weird I don’t know, although I seriously think it’s not all my fault– but that night I remember dancing and smiling like a retard with just 1 drink – yeap. that was a first for me.

In this interview by James Thirkettle for the documentary “How do you listen to music?”, amongst other things he’s talking about how listening to music can differ depending on how we practice that, while he’s referring to his own experiences when it comes to the appreciation of music.

"...The great thing about music is that it has the power to continually surprise you, if you allow it to do that…"

And that's why, my friends, background music is forbidden. You 'll understand when you watch that video.

If you want to get to know Greg Wilson a little bit better, here you can check out his blog (which is updated all the time), here you can explore his soundcloud page (where -trust me- you'll find loads of music, you 'll be able to download for free tunes that are mind blowing and you 'll probably need hours to be sure that you haven't missed anything). Also, you can search for his compilations Credit to the Edit Vol 1&2 (Tirk Records)

Below you 'll find 3 of my favorite Greg Wilson edits and my favorite set, some free for download.
