GPWW 2/16/11: Worldwide Family Mixtape by Deep Space Orchestra

Gilles Peterson continues his journey as a global force, this week bringing a mix by Deep Space Orchestra, the electronic UK duo. First he digs into all kinds of new music, including Duffstep, Penguin Café, Rick Wilhite, Mr Raoul K, Bibio, Al Quetz and The Stepkids (a hipsterish rock group, the latest signing to Stones Throw Records). Gilles also takes a moment to honor the recently deceased, legendary Jazz pianist George Shearing. You might be interested to learn that George Shearing had a Latin music streak as you’ll hear in his rendition of Horace Silver’s “Senor Blues” – we learn new something every week from this show. Deep Space Orchestra comes in with a mix of their own stuff and their favorites including Cottam, Chateau Fight, Bicep and KRL. Afterwards, Gilles closes it up with a few of his musical staples: James Blake and Ramadanman.

Sample James Blake‘s forthcoming album in this youtube clip. We’ve all had his Feist cover “Limit to your Love” on repeat for the last few months so of course we’re excited for the full-length debut. The full-length debut and vinyl of the single will be available next week for UK fans, who can pre-order here [iTunes]. Later this year, we can look forward to a tour: Blake has commented that his show will consist of a proper live band and they’ve been practicing.
