GPWW 3/8/10 Worldwide Family Mixtape: Josh Wink

Coming down off the excitement of that World Cup mix, Gilles Peterson still has to wait a while before the first match in June. Back to the groove, he’s home from a trip South covering New Zealand and Australia, and he has reliably collected new music all along the way. This week features music from that side of the globe, as well as some recent listens and favorites from his tour, like Scuba, Ramadanman and Michel Cleis. This week GPWW also features a mix from Josh Wink, an innovator from Philadelphia whose musical approach is described as techno meets big-room bop.

Gilles Peterson Prepares for the World Cup

The first GPWW of March 2010 is a new format. The playlist is broken into eight groups — musical brackets if you will — corresponding to countries participating in the FIFA World Cup 2010. Thirty-two national football teams, sixty-four matches, and something tells us that Gilles will not miss a single one.  This week’s show is perfect evidence that these playlists are truly worldwide. In it you will find a a track from each of the thirty-two countries, carefully selected with a little help from Twitter friends.
