Gilles Peterson Gp04

Swiss-made, London-based Gilles Peterson survived radio piracy and stashing vinyl booty over 20 years ago to feed his adoration of soul, jazz and hip-hop forms into GP04. With characteristic precision, Peterson selects a superfluity of artists who buck profiles. Peterson opens with Gallic abstract beats from DJ Vadim-produced TTC and the Latin posturing of Headtric featuring Joshua Baumgarten. Philly's King Britt (feat. Quasimoto), LA's The Rebirth, and Detroit Experiment represent the best of US smooth tempos with a bit o' bite. Troubleman, Beatfanatic and Mr. Spock drop mighty bounce, and the highlight of this collection is the LTJ Experience's sambasized remix of Japan's "Studio Apartment."
