Gilles Peterson and Pharoahe Monch in Conversation

Pharoahe Monch came down to the Brownswood basement ahead of his sold out show at The Garage in Highbury a couple of weeks ago. We talked Hip Hop history, digging for records, sampling and his love of playing in the UK. It was fascinating to hear his stories of the early days of Organized Konfusion and Rawkus Records as well as the plans for his next album.

In Memory of Maurice White Mix

I avoided the really obvious hits that you can hear everywhere and went for my personal faves, and a solid dose of the music that went on to shape the unique sound of Earth Wind and Fire from his early years working with two great mentors to him, Ramsey Lewis and Charles Stepney. I got so much pleasure recording this ? I hope you enjoy as much as I did!

LV Words & Music

Ahead of their live show at St Pancras Old Church, here's a chat I had with the two boys from LV, Will and Simon, discussing their beginnings, their D&B period, linking up with Keysound and Hyperdub, working with Joshua Idehen, Omkalumkoolkat, and the new project featuring Armenian pianist, Tigran Hamasyan. Ancient Mechanisms? is the fourth album by globetrotting London production duo LV. It traces a train of thought that was sparked by a live session with Tigran Hamasyan back in 2012: two and a half years down the line and a trip to Belgium later, the finished record is as much about the workings of musical artefacts as it is about putting the virtuoso pianist into new contexts. TRACKLIST LV - Transition Ian Pooley - What's Your Number (Jazzanova Remix) Bad Company - The Nine Les Voleurs - Cabin Fever DJ Vadim - Got To Rock LV - Globetrotting LV & Joshua Idehen - Never Tired LV & Okmalumkoolkat -...

Jon Hassell Words & Music

Last week Gilles had the legendary trumpet player and electronic music pioneer, Jon Hassell pass by the Brownswood Basement. Jon was a close collaborator with David Byrne and Brian Eno, famed for his 'fourth world' sound which in the 1970s and 80s was unique in merging third world tradition with first world technology. During a hour of words and music, Jon honestly and thought-provokingly discusses that Talking Heads period and some of the regrets he has from that time, as well as touching on his experiences working with German electronic music composer Stockhausen, his admiration for Gil Evans, and his developed thoughts on the north vs south/ mind vs body divide, which have significantly informed the way he creates his music and lives his life. His is an extraordinary story of learning, cultural discovery, and a resounding commitment to realising his unique creative vision. For a full tracklisting go to
