Girl Talk aka Gregg Michael Gillis can only be described as a musical revolutionary. In just over a decade, the Pittsburgh native has transformed the way we see and hear music, while simultaneously giving birth to a new genre.
Oddly enough, I first heard about Girl Talk during a Communication lecture at SFU, where my Professor gave Gillis props for continuing to make art under the intense confines created by copyright infringement. After said lecture, I immediately returned to my dorm room and downloaded ‘Night Ripper’ and ‘Feed The Animals’, two albums that have been in heavy rotation ever since, along with his most recent release ‘All Day’.
In terms of critical acclaim, Girl Talk is in a league all by himself. No other DJ/Producer/Musical Mastermind can sample the way he does. And if the rumors are true, which I’m pretty sure they are, nobody puts on a live show quite like Gregg Michael Gillis.
If you want to see what all the hype is about, Gillis will be playing at the Commodore in Vancouver on September 7. You better hit the gym beforehand, this show is gunna be an aerobic workout.
