Psychology of DJing: IG Culture


Our new Psychology of DJing series sees Gilles Peterson interview some of his favourite characters on the world DJ circuit to explore life behind the turntables. Covering a breadth of topics as varied as breastfeeding to the pressures of tough crowds, this series promises searingly honest conversations about the joys and struggles of spinning records.

Gilles Peterson interviews pioneering DJ, performer and producer IG Culture AKA Ian Grant. They discuss how his early work helped shape music history and the pressures that came with it. They also discuss the importance of making sacrifices, the willingness to do things differently and the magical feeling when a dance floor clicks and a set takes on a life of its own.
