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.
