GPWW 3/2/11: Roots Reggae, Serge Gainsbourg & Joe’s Jazz Mix

This edition of GPWW continues its mission of “searching for the perfect beat, each and every week, whether it be new or old music” as Gilles Peterson states again. Inspired by the recent BBC documentary Reggae Britannia, he dedicates a segment to roots reggae music from the likes of Yellowman, Alton Lewis, and Delroy Wilson among others. Later in the show he also dedicates a mix segment to the memory of “the iconic Serge Gainsbourg“, as well as a Jazz mix provided by Joe the producer to cap it off.

Les Nubians – New Album Nü Revolution Out April 19th

Les Nubians are back with a new album, featuring “Veuillez Veiller Sur Vos Rêves” (Don’t Let Your Dreams Fall Asleep) and “Afrodance” (streaming below). The new album, Nü Revolution may be the most impressive representation of Les Nubians’ Afropean Soul to date. Featuring special guests ranging from African music legend Manu Dibango, whose “Soul Makossa” crossover classic gets a politically charged make-over, to indie soul icon Eric Roberson, with South African pop stars Freshly Ground, Ghanian-American MC Blitz The Ambassador and Polish MC John Banzaï along for the ride. Somehow, Les Nubians manage to make the blend of so many diverse elements seem logical and organic; it flows quite naturally from their multicultural lives.

Nü Revolution will be released on April 19th on Shanachie Entertainment.
