GPWW 4/20/11: Worldwide Family Mixtape – Austin Peralta

This week’s show starts out with a track by the recently-deceased drummer Steve Reid, who Gilles Peterson started a foundation for on behalf of struggling musicians. The GPWW radio show moves quickly after that with some Roots, plus more great music by Morgan Zarate, Jack Soul, Riton and Hefner.

Then we get into the special mix from the latest Brainfeeder signing, a new LA-based pianist named Austin Peralta. He plays a nice variety of tunes alongside his own songs, including Bjork, John Coltrane, J Dilla, Archie Shepp and more. Gilles finishes off the show with more Coltrane (never enough ‘Trane) Sun-Ra, Bobby Hutcherson, Tortoise, Moloko and Arthur Russell.

Check out a significantly less controversial new video from M.I.A.,  at least compared to the gruesome “Born Free” video. Our girl Maya has traveled a long, bumpy road to the release of her album /\/\/\Y/\ , but she’s still going strong and sticking with the GIF animation theme in her “XXXO” video. If you haven’t already, check out the “XXXO” remixes featuring Jay-Z and more remixes by Riton and SBTRKT.

Wolfmother Remixes “New Moon Rising”

new-moon-rising_1The first single from Wolfmother‘s sophomore release Cosmic Egg, “New Moon Rising”, is a thumping, ripping slice of optimistic future-blues, complete with textbook flaming Wolfmother guitar and joyously bludgeoning drums. It’s a thrilling rush of goodtimes direct to the soul and one that’s sure to be inescapable very, very soon.

On remix duties, London’s Henry “Riton” concocts a pair of sophisticated rubs with quirky electronic melodies. Portland’s indie dance duo YACHT fix-up synth-y, mutant disco with punk-funk handclaps, and Gothenburg’s Fontän rework the single with psychedelic effects and stylings.
