GPWW 8/9/10: Hypnotic Brass Ensemble Feature

Despite the bad weather which kept us off the rooftop, we were very grateful for Gilles Petersons secret performance at NYC Soho House on Sunday; he played a killer set and naturally got the crowd moving. If you too want to be included in the hippest swanky events, always featuring quality music, follow our tweets for exclusive event entrances, plus crafty art and vinyl contests. 

This week on GPWW, Gilles Peterson features the words and sounds of the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. Their interview reveals a lot about the group: from their introduction to brass instruments and what they’ve been through to what’s next for them as a band. The first part of the show is mostly old favorites interspersed with brand new music from artists like Nia Andrews and Marcos Valle.

Gilles Peterson Digs Cuba

[kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/7CrXJ-QugkE" width="550" height="445" allowfullscreen="true" fvars="fs=1" /]

2 years ago, Gilles Peterson visited Cuba for the first time on a reconnaissance mission to check out the new generation of Havana-based artists.  The fruits of his labor culminated in the album he presented, Havana Cultura, which was recently released, but now his Brownswood Recordings imprint is preparing the release of Havana Cultura Remixed out on June 7th, enlisting remixes from the likes of Louie Vega, Carl Cox, Seiji, Marc Mac of 4Hero, and many more.  The 2 disc album also features a bonus DJ mix courtesy of Gilles Peterson himself that neatly weaves together the disparate threads that make up a typical Peterson DJ Set.  From the stirring percussion and meandering groove of Louie Vega’s marathon Latin workout to the hi-octane Bengua-esque skank delivered by Carl Cox and the lazy ebb and flow of Michel Cleis‘ magnificent shuffling houser, this is Gilles in his element.
