One of France's premier house DJs and producers, DJ Gregory began his recording career in the late '90s, producing tracks for the labels Basenotic Records and Yellow Productions, before affiliating himself with the celebrated Africanism project and ultimately founding his own label, Faya Combo, in the new millennium. Two of his signature productions are "Tropical Soundclash" (2002) and "Elle" (2003). Born Grégory Darsa, he became serious about house music around 1990, when he began making annual pilgrimages to New York City to explore the city's club scene. During the early '90s he worked as a record distributor, importing international dance music to France. By mid-decade he was making a name for himself as a DJ, most notably appearing regularly on Radio FG in collaboration with DJ Deep.
