The new album from Ghostpoet, Peanut Butter Blues and Melancholy Jam, comes with the Gilles Peterson stamp of approval – it was released this month on the Brownswood record label, and singles like “Cash and Carry Me Home” and “Liiines” have been heavily played on the GPWW radio show for months now. Since the US release on February 4th, Ghostpoet has received praise from all kinds of press:

“In a way, Peanut Butter Blues sounds like what Slick Rick might have made if he drank a little bit more, slowed down his flow a touch, and loved messing with synthesizers, drum machines, and laptops.” - Prefix Mag

GPWW 2/16/11: Worldwide Family Mixtape by Deep Space Orchestra

Gilles Peterson continues his journey as a global force, this week bringing a mix by Deep Space Orchestra, the electronic UK duo. First he digs into all kinds of new music, including Duffstep, Penguin Café, Rick Wilhite, Mr Raoul K, Bibio, Al Quetz and The Stepkids (a hipsterish rock group, the latest signing to Stones Throw Records). Gilles also takes a moment to honor the recently deceased, legendary Jazz pianist George Shearing. You might be interested to learn that George Shearing had a Latin music streak as you’ll hear in his rendition of Horace Silver’s “Senor Blues” – we learn new something every week from this show. Deep Space Orchestra comes in with a mix of their own stuff and their favorites including Cottam, Chateau Fight, Bicep and KRL. Afterwards, Gilles closes it up with a few of his musical staples: James Blake and Ramadanman.

Giant Step & Dusty Groove Present: Bilal Live in Chicago, March 5th

On March 5th, Bilal brings his own live band to the windy city for a rare Chicago performance by the Philadelphia-born Soulquarian. Bilal’s 2010 album Airtight’s Revenge was arguably one of the best soul albums of the year, getting incredible feedback from both his peers and the press. The remixes, the covers and videos that came along with it were all leading to this – the tour. If you’re in Chicago next weekend, catch Bilal at The Shrine, presented by Giant Step and Dusty Groove, to experience the voice Janelle Monáe once described as a Van Gogh painting.
