Bugs Gregory has a passion for music and a drive for creative exploration which has taken him on a producing, writing and remixing adventure.
After he cut his first studio demo, in the back of a store front off Dale Avenue in St. Paul, MN., he received a call from a London based lawyer looking to buy his songs. “I began to think that maybe I needed to give this music production thing a little more thought”.
And that is what he did.
His 1st 12 inch single in 1996 "Come and Get Me", saw nationwide club play, peaking at #5.
In 1996-1998, Gregory was signed to Stacey Castro's Los Angeles based, GroundWorks Music, a production and management company which led to remix work and also another successful 12 inch single, "(The) Kama Sutra", released on New York's Waako Records. This single went on to see much national and international club success as well as being a choice cut for several compilation CD's released by labels such as MCA Records. It was also selected to the initial voting rounds for the 40th Annual Grammy Awards.
From 2000-2003, Gregory worked with producer and former Flyte Tyme Studios (Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis) guru, Jeff Taylor of Madjef Productions. Work included programming, mixing and producing sample CD's (Black Butta series) as well as other production and remix work for various artists. Also along with Madjef, producing, writing and programming tracks for DKG / Universal Music recording artists, KUSH and Rhian Benson.
Following this he did remix work for Grammy and Emmy Award winning Val Watson and remixes for Tiff Lacey, Valerie M and L-KAE. Gregory also had licensed cuts for Bunim/Murray Productions and P. Diddy's series, Making The Band 2 & How To Live Like A Model on MTV.
On a whim in 2011, Gregory decided to register for a producer showcase event in Minneapolis sponsered by New York based company, iStandard Producers. Out of the 50 plus applicants he was chosen as the #2 best producer for the event by a panel of industry judges. To quote JayZ / 50 Cent producer (and judge) Buckwild, “ahhh, what can I say”.
Today Bugs Gregory continues his creative journey and exploration working out of his home based music production suite somewhere in Groovesalot, MN.
