In 1996 DJ Gregory made his recording debut, "Take the Cash on Run," on Basenotic Records as Cheesy D. The following year he co-produced "Faithfull," a hit collaboration with Julien Jabre as Fantom for the EMI subsidiary Source. Throughout the remainder of the decade, he produced additional tracks under a series of monikers -- namely Bobby Ewing, .G, Prassay, Carinhoso Project, and DJ Gregory -- for a variety of labels, most notably Yellow Productions, home of DJ Yellow and Bob Sinclar. In 2000 he began producing tracks as Africanism, a collaborative project on Yellow Productions; two of his productions in the series, "Block Party" and "Tourment d'Amour," became international club hits.
Established as a hitmaker, DJ Gregory founded his own label in 2002, Faya Combo, and released "Tropical Soundclash," another sensation, this one billed to himself. His fifth release on Faya Combo, "Elle" (2003), was also a club smash. During this same time period, he and Bob Sinclar mixed the double-disc Africanism (2002); plus, he and Julien Jabre produced a series of tracks for Basic Recordings under the Soha moniker. In subsequent years, DJ Gregory affiliated himself with Defected Records, on which he released Faya Combo Sessions (2008), a three-CD collection of his work (the first disc a DJ mix, the second a compilation of his productions, the third a compilation of productions as remixed by others). ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi
