Brownswood Basement: Gilles Peterson with Leroy Burgess, Red Greg and John Morales10.11.17
Gilles Peterson presents a weekly show from the iconic Brownswood Basement. This week features an interview with the Miles Davis of boogie – Leroy Burgess, disco digger extraordinaire Red Greg and New York DJ Jon Morales.
John Morales was born in the Bronx, New York and has been involved in the creation of hit records for the better part of 30 years, playing at spots like the infamous Studio 54.
Funk and disco stalwart LeRoy Burgess‘ fingerprints can be found on records spanning 40 years. A multi-instrumentalist, singer, producer, arranger and composer, Burgess’ impact on the history of dance music, from the birth of house to the founding of boogie, is beyond measure.
London local and Ebonite founder DJ Red Greg first stepped up to the booth in 1985 and he hasn’t stopped since. His deep knowledge and technical chops have taken him around the world, spinning funk, soul, house and acid records for audiences everywhere.Listen now Tracklist
