This past week’s edition of the Worldwide Show with Gilles Peterson starts off with a sultry, brass interpretation of Kendrick Lamar‘s “B*tch Don’t Kill My Vibe” from Austinfa jazz producer Sly5thAve. The eclectic grooves continue with a Ras G triplet, Ghostface Killah double, and a hip-hop throwback in “The Do Over” section with Public Enemy.
Gilles also presents a mixtape from global soul quartet, Hiatus Kaiyote, featuring tunes from fellow Aussies Ainslie Willis, Clever Austin, Electric Sea Spider, and more. Hiatus have been riding a wave of success recently that has included acclaim from icons such as Erykah Badu and ?uestlove, as well as a sold-out NYC debut at Le Poisson Rouge in March.

Mark Ronson is back, and this time more than ever he means business – The Business INTL, in fact. Record Collection is the third album headed up by the trans-Atlantic music mastermind and, as usual, he’s brought a host of talented friends and mainstay collaborators along for the ride: Ghostface Killah, Q-Tip, MNDR, Boy George, D’Angelo, Nick Hodgson of the Kaiser Chiefs, Duran Duran’s Simon Le Bon, The Zutons’ Dave McCabe, Spank Rock, Elinor Dougall, Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters, Cathy Dennis, Miike Snow frontman Andrew Wyatt, and more.
By now, half the globe is already familiar with the lead-in single “Bang Bang Bang,” a 3am Cote d’Azur disco beat featuring Q-Tip and MNDR that takes the French nursery rhyme “Alouette” and turns it into a Jean Michel Jarre meets NYC hip-pop sing-along. 2010 just got a lot more fun.
