GPWW: 7/6/11: David Rodigan In-Studio Clash and History of Reggae

Jamaica is the destination in this latest installment of Gilles Peterson World Wide. Gilles brings into his studio the legendary DJ David Rodigan, known for being an influential figure within the Reggae genre. Rodigan takes us on a musical journey through the history of Reggae, from its Rastafarian Ska roots, through to Bob Marley and The Wailers, the origin of Dubs, and even gives us his take on the impact that digital sounds had on Jamaica’s music in the mid 80s. Towards the end, Rodigan and Gilles clash – a form of competition that’s been around since the 1950s – by taking turns playing some classic reggae jams.

We’re in for a treat this week, as Gilles Peterson brings us his Vinyl Record Special. For this installment of his Worldwide Radio show, he goes diggin’ in the crates, playing tunes exclusively from his vinyl collection. As he mentions at the start, “think about going into the most amazing record shop that you’ve ever seen…it’s all goodness, and we’ve pulled out the very best ones.” One such gem is “Song of the Wind” from Santana, a masterful cut from their 1972 album Caravanserai. Other artists included in the Vinyl Record Special are Nina Simone, Gil Scott-Heron, and Lou Bond, among many more. Sit back and enjoy.
