We’re just like you: we get put on to the best new artists, the likes of which we might have never heard, by Gilles Peterson and his magical radio shows. Andreya Triana is one of those artists. Her tracks stand out in the latest GPWW (Worldwide Family Mixtape: Sbtrkt) and we searched to find that Andreya is unsurprisingly a Ninja Tune artist.
This is the first single from her forthcoming debut album, Lost Where I Belong, co-written with Fin Greenall (aka Fink) and produced by Simon Green (aka Bonobo).
GPWW starts off 2010 with Rahsaan Roland Kirk, moving on to Andreya Triana, Nneka, Jay Electronica, and through to preview the new album by Gil Scott Heron, New York is Killing Me. In Part 2, UK producer Sbtrkt (pronounced ‘Subtract’) joins Gilles in the studio and the mix.
