Girl Talk is the pseudonym of DJ and remixer Greg Gillis. A Pittsburgh native who works as a biomedical research engineer during the day, Gillis
channels his other creative energies into Girl Talk, whose sample-based dance tracks have made him the John Oswald or Christian Marclay of
the mash-up generation: each of his songs are built on recognizable samples of recent hit singles, recontextualized into an entirely new piece.
Not just a geeky studio boffin, Gillis is also a manic, intense live performer known for his high-speed exhortations into the mic and tendency to
strip to his underwear on stage while dancing circles around his laptop and DJ setup.
