Gilles Peterson presents his brand new weekly show live from the Brownswood Basement. For this debut show Gilles presents a packed lineup, including Rodney P speaking about Pirate Radio, Dan Snaith presenting new Daphni material, a live session from Jordan Rakei and Alfa Mist and an interview with Japanese ambient pioneer Midori Takada.
It is safe to say Dan Snaith’s (AKA Caribou) musical life has followed anything but a predictable trajectory. Having revelled in numerous explosive releases and aliases, Snaith prepares to release Joli Mai, his second album as his Daphni moniker.
Japanese ambient pioneer Midori Takada is a composer and percussionist who released a string of mindblowing records beginning in the 1980s. Ahead of her hugely anticipated Barbican dates, Midori catches up with Worldwide FM for an interview.
Recent signee to Ninja Tune, Jordan Rakei has made a name for himself in an impressively short space of time. After leaving home in New Zealand, he’s now based in London, releasing his second album Wallflower September 2017 to huge critical acclaim .
Having started his career as the deeper, dubstep embedded Headhunter, Tony William now focusses on Addison Groove, his freer, juke-fuelled pseudonym with stripped down beats, acid basslines and hip-hop leaning vocals.
