Who doesn´t know about Gilles Peterson? For those who really don´t here´s a small introduction i found at his website:“Music lover, record collector, DJ, broadcaster… Perhaps most famous for his much loved genre-exploding radio shows on BBC Radio 1 (and 17 other stations around the world including Japan’s leading commercial station J-Wave), Gilles’ insatiable appetite for new music undoubtedly lies at the heart of his success. Worldwide is 10 years young and fresher than ever – a benchmark for broadcasters the world over; global demand for his DJ sets is at an all-time high; the mighty Worldwide Festival (held annually in France and Singapore) curated by GP just gets better and better; and as for his record label Brownswood Recordings? Well, it just goes from strength to strength.”
Gilles great shows on BBC Radio 1 and his eclectic podcasts have been crossing my path many times and it was always a pleasure. Now, i do have a strong focus on electronic music in this Blog but this is great for a change!
Jazz..for those summer nights that are hopefully still to come.
