This compilation is a tribute to a truly groundbreaking show, music and a serious music personality who is ahead of the curve and debuts awesome records on his show before anyone else. Gilles Peterson is a truly revered international club and radio DJ and one of music’s foremost tastemakers, (possibly the most well known in the whole world) in a world dominated by style over substance.
The focus of this compilation is to present to its audience not just a DJ's favourite selection or songs that stood the test of time but it represents a great collection of songs and grooves premiered on the Gilles Worldwide show before any other station in the world. Not many people in this day and age are able to bring together multi genre music and pick the best of each genre like Gilles can. Killer tunes from Amy Winehouse, Dizzee Rascal, Recloose, Little Dragon, Cinematic Orchestra, M.I.A, Benga and Darkstar are all highlights.
For Fans of: Hip Hop, Funk, Jazz, Soul, Dubstep and all other related music styles!
