Gregory Del Piero (born October 14, 1972 in Sète, Hérault) is a French music producer and DJ.

In 1987, Gregory Del Piero started as a DJ, he was introduced to the night-life scene by one of his uncles who was a bouncer at the time. The following decade Gregory worked as a resident dj in numerous popular clubs in the south of France until the summer of 1998, where he met the world-famous Joe Claussell of Body & Soul, from New York City, while Joe was on tour in France. After that meeting Gregory decided to pursue his interest in electronic music and moved to San Francisco.

In 2000, through the club scene and Mauricio Aviles, he was introduced to Israel Megerssa the owner of Zebra Records. Israel took Gregory under his wing and hired him as a house music buyer at Zebra Records Music store. More than a father figure, Israel was a spiritual guide to Gregory and told Gregory that he should start getting into music production. That will mark the beginning of a 4-year collaboration with the keyboardist and sound engineer Charles Spencer where Gregory began producing his signature sound – soulful house music.

In 2001, Gregory's first single, titled "Don't Hesitate", was signed by the label Subliminal Records and since then he has produced some of the most influential and cutting-edge "master pieces" in the industry, such as his remix for Miguel Migs & Jay-J "Friend of the Blues" on Black Vinyl, "Won’t Stop" featuring Latrice Barnett, "Each Other" featuring Paris Brightledge and the timeless classic "Anytime". Gregory has been one of the few San Francisco's artist that has created and developed what was called "the San Francisco Sound" Deep and Soulful melody that has been copied widely and spread all across the glode the next coming years.

In 2006, with the help of the digital era and download sites like Traxsource and Beatport, Gregory started his own independent record label Del Records. He released his first artist album " I Love You More", that got acclaimed in the Dance music industry and abroad by the likes of Stuart Matthewman (Sade) and CeCe Rogers (Jestofunk). Gregory and "I Love You More" were granted with a front page cover and a full page interview on the oldest UK Dance magazine M8 (Tilllate Magazine).

In 2010 Gregory has become one of the most prolific producers in the soulful side of the scene and has already produced and remixed such artists as Byron Stingily (Ten City), Susu Bobien, Keith Thompson (Raze/Break For Love, Pepper Mashay, Stephanie Cooke, Kenny Bobien, Michelle weeks, Latrice Barnette, Monday Michiru, Billy Love, Jojo Haley and Bill "The Buddah" Dickens amongst others.

Gregory has been performing as a DJ in all major events in San Francisco, and also abroad in Detroit, Miami, Los Angeles, Dubai, Bratislava, Copenhagen.
