As usual Gilles Peterson is up to his typical antics with the, Worldwide Show, showcasing flawless mixes and stellar track selection. This weeks show features sounds from DJ's Rainer Truby and Bangatang. In a similar fashion, these lads both have a keen sense of proper songs and do a fantastic job at mixing them well.
Jonesy is back at it again with another installment of the 'The World According To Jonesy'. And in accordance with tradition, Jonesy reminds us that crate digging certainly isn't dead. Every track featured in this week's installment is solid gold (so what if Jonesy had to wipe off a few layers of dust to let the true luster come shining out).
In this latest installment of the Worldwide Show, Gilles Peterson brings in legendary DJ/Producer Louie Vega. Little” Louie Vega graces this mix with several stylings from afro beat rhythms to samba shuffles, taking us on a mellow yet danceable journey through his musical mind.
Good friend and fellow Time Traveler, Jonesy, is always able to impress his listeners with an epic selection of cuts, from deep funk to cosmic soul classics. The track, "'Tween the Lines," by Noel Pointer is especially groovy - it has a George Benson "Breezin'" type feel, inter-sprinkled with funky vocoder melodies that make Daft Punk wish they had taken a lesson from Jonesy's record collection.
Sacramento based producer Lee Banon, while only 24 years old, is already a decorated artist in his own right. Having worked with Talib Kweli, The Alchemist, U-N-I, Curren$y, and Saigon, to name a few, this dude is definitely well on his way. Last month, he released his Fantastic Plastic EP, which you can stream in full after the jump.
Today, we want to share a supremely dope mix he did for Mary Anne Hobbs' radio show. Hollowed pulsing sounds are chopped into a mystical ambient concoction - you can't help but close your eyes and fade out.
