My Historical Interview With Gilles Peterson
As far as broadcasting goes, Gilles Peterson is like an institution. You might just learn something by tuning into his worldly BBC Radio 1 show. Last night, I was a guest on his show where his listeners (between the UK, Japan, and the U.S.) got wind of songs like “Cold Pillow,” “Enjoy The Sun,” and the Leatherette remix of “Late Night Operation.”
Mr. Peterson, a veteran to the music industry (20 years!) was rocked by “Cold Pillow.” It was my gift to him, and of course the world. In return, he surprised me with an autographed copy of his new coffee table book, Freedom: Rhythm & Sound. An inspiring collection of music I must say. Watch a segment from our interview below.
