Lefto & Simbad Present Worldwide Family Volume 1 Teasers

Brownswood Recordings is a clear leader in the art of compilation releases. Besides the fact that the music is often hand-picked by Gilles Peterson, Brownswood compilations have a greater purpose than to rehash old hits; they bring quality music to light, music that might otherwise be overlooked.

Gilles isn’t the only DJ on a world mission to find the perfect beat, and he’s trusted the Brownswood family DJs Lefto & Simbad to start a new series for the Worldwide Family. Enjoy these teasers from both DJs and check the tracklistings after the jump.

Look out for Lefto & Simbad Present Worldwide Family Volume 1 in early 2011.

Gilles Peterson Presents: Worldwide 2xCD + MP3

The tagline for this new double-disc compilation, out on BBE Records October 11th, Gilles Peterson Worldwide is “A Celebration of His Syndicated Radio Show.” It’s filled with some of Gilles Peterson‘s biggest radio successes: the acts he broke on BBC1, the bands he catapulted to cult status, the songs he made into international sensations, and basically many of the milestones from the last ten years of funk, soul and jazz music.

In fact, we get giddy every Thursday when we have the exclusive stream to share with you. Check out past shows of the  highly-influential 2-hour broadcast. [GPWW on Giant Step]

Gilles’ selections throughout the years have influenced all of us, if not the whole world. He’s been on a massive quest ‘for the perfect beat,’ and thanks to this show, we’re constantly updated on the status of the noble, necessary mission.

Grab the download and after the jump, watch some of our favorite videos of tracks featured on the compilation.
