Out all Night is set to be released in August 2020.
We asked Gregory a few questions to understand more behind the creation of his album.
What was the main idea behind this release? Is there a narrative, or story throughout the Album??
The idea for the Album came from a photo of Tokyo at night, which eventually became the front cover. I had been working on a lot of house music, which is typically the genre I enjoy working with but, I also wanted to change the style of music I was producing as a lot of the music that’s coming out has been inspiring new ideas. I think I had four or five songs finished when I realised that actually an album was the best way to showcase the variations in the music I was creating. Once I finished ‘Out All Night’ not only did I feel the title was fitting to the track but also it suited the album name too, they both went hand in hand. The artwork really drove the feel for the album.
I really struggled with some concepts, not coming from a musical background the guidance and mentoring I received really inspired confidence in my own ability.
The knowledge of the tutors was incredible and they were more than willing to spend the time with me, even after classes so I fully understood anything I was stuck with. I don’t think I could have got where I am today without you guys!
Signing to Wuze is a bit of a funny story really! it all came about in a bowling alley after I’d drank probably too much Jägermeister!
Last March I had agreed to sign to quite a well-known German Record Label after they heard my debut track ‘Talk to me‘. The problem was that the contract talks had taken a long time and hadn’t really progressed, I was becoming anxious that it might not get released.
Over the following Easter weekend, I was in Germany for a big music event called EasterRave.
I usually go bowling the night before and catch up with a few people I know but, on this occasion, my friend and I were running really late as the trains were on strike. I’d flown over to Germany from Manchester and arrived in Oberhausen late into the evening. We decided to have a few drinks in the hotel and I don’t really drink. By the time we left the hotel and walked to the bowling alley I was pretty much wiped out.
William (Quickdrop) who owns Wuze was there with some mutual friends and we were both sat at the same table. I was in no fit state to bowl, I don’t think either of us had spoken when he said to me’ I really dig your track and want to sign it to Wuze’ I literally shook his hand and that was it! I don’t really remember much else!
The biggest surprise of all was that both Quickdrop and Justin Corza were playing a DJ set at EasterRave together and they played the Morty Simmons remix of ‘Talk to Me’ which was one of the most surreal experiences I have ever had. Not bad for a weekend in Germany.
