In this episode, the overall theme of Gilles Peterson’s WorldWide Show is minimalism. He opens the show with an eclectic track from London producer James Blake, proceeding on to play Dego‘s instrumental “The Monarch,” and then giving us a taste of Jill Scott‘s newest album with the neo soul number “Rolling Hills.”
Gilles also pays tribute to the great producer Fonce Mizell, who recently passed away. The tribute segment includes some of Mizell’s work with Bobbi Humphrey, Marvin Gaye, and Taste of Honey. For the weekly Worldwide Family Mixtape Gilles enlists multi-instrumentalist producer Machinedrum to bless us with a varied mix of tunes. Machinedrum is based out of Brooklyn and recently released an LP called Room(s) through indie electronic label Planet Mu.
