Greg Downey - Global Code

Belfast-born Greg began DJing over six years ago, shortly before he decided to pack up and move to Ibiza for the summer with his records. While playing at a dingy San Antonio after-party, he was spotted by the promoter of Gatecrasher, who was so impressed he asked him to play the following week at Space. Since then, Greg has worked hard to establish himself firmly among the best young DJs in the UK, recently voted Number 82 in the DJ Mag Top 100 DJ Poll..

Greg developed a taste for tougher electronic dance music from a young age and this is reflected in his unique style, which combines underground and uplifting trance with elements of techno. This is all rolled into an explosive performance, which sees him using 3 CDJs, Serato Scratch Live, Pioneer DJM 800 and EFX 1000 to devastating effect.

In 2006, Greg joined the PF Agency, and is going from strength to strength, spinning to packed crowds at Lush, Godskitchen, Slinky, Inside Out, Goodgreef, Passion, Gatecrasher, The Gallery and a host of others including dates around the world in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Shanghai, Poland and Indonesia.

In 2007, Greg attracted the attention of John Digweed with his remix of ‘Heaven Scent’, which featured on the massive Cream’s Ibiza 2007 compilation and championed by every everyone from Sasha, Eric Prydz, Paul van Dyk, Tiesto, Armin and Digweed himself. Greg has also appeared twice on Eddie’s show in the last twelve months, most recently in September, where he delivered an ingenious Full Fire Mix.

Greg has enjoyed huge success with his own track, ‘Vivid Intent’ , which Armin Van Buuren picked as his ‘tune of the week’ on his award-winning State Of Trance radio show!

2007 saw Greg record his first Live As album on Discover. Recorded live from this years mega Planet Love Festival in Northern Ireland, the album captured Greg's energy as a DJ and was featured as "Album of the Month" in Mixmag.

2008 was Greg's biggest year to date, clocking up airmiles across the globe from South Africa, Finland, Sweden, Poland, Argentina and more. Greg was snapped up by Paul van Dyk for his label Vandit. His first release Stadium was a huge success and was Mixmag's Cream Ibiza anthem of 2008. Greg was also chosen by Paul van Dyk to remix his track New York City which appeared on his massive Hands on In Between Album. On the tougher side of things his track King Dong on Discover Dark was hugely popular with Tiesto, Paul van Dyk, Judge Jules and Eddie Halliwell. Greg's defining moment was entering the DJ Mag Top 100 at number 82, an amazing achievement for a young talent.

Supported regularly by the likes of Paul van Dyk, Tiesto ,Armin, Ferry Corsten, Eddie Halliwell, Judge Jules, Sander van Doorn Above and Beyond and many more, Greg's many achievements, alongside his outstanding technical ability and passion to succeed will make him a household name.
