This week on the Gilles Peterson World Wide radio show: the best of The Worldwide Awards from North London, an annual celebration of the music played on GPWW; plus the usual oddities and soulful grooves. Featured artists include Flako, Bonobo, Andreya Triana, Theophilus London, Mulatu Astatke & more.
To follow the Crystal Pharoah Remix of Si*Sé's "This Love," we have a new remix by Hird, best known for his album Moving On with Yukimi Nagano (Little Dragon). This track is on the mellow side of house, but the driving instrumentation makes it great for the dance floor. It has elements of breakbeat in the verses, undulated bass lines, and subtle touches of jazz.

Talib Kweli & Hi-Tek, AKA Reflection Eternal, have teased us for years now with the promise of a follow-up to their classic album Train of Thought. Finally, things seem to be coming together, so we are eagerly anticipating new music any day now. If "In this World" is any indication, it will be worth the wait.
