Masterpiece brings you legends from the world of music that have one unique story to tell through their own influences and inspirations. A collection like no other that really holds its creator in serious high regard. Masterpiece welcomes none other than Gilles Peterson.
After an 8-year residency at Kiss FM, Gilles took his Worldwide radio show to BBC Radio 1 in 1998, where he’s enjoyed 12 years at the station (and counting) broadcasting the Worldwide sound to receptive ears. Gilles now records a weekly Worldwide programme that is syndicated to 12 stations across the globe including France, Austria, Japan’s no 1 commercial station J-Wave.
It doesn’t stop there however; the “Worldwide” tag extends to two annual musical extravaganzas – the Worldwide Festival and the Worldwide Awards. The Worldwide festival recently celebrated its fifth birthday, taking place in the South of France in July. The festival showcases Gilles’ favourite artists, bands and DJ’s across a 4 day party in the Mediterranean sun. The awards are a more intimate affair celebrating the finest emerging talent championed by Gilles.
Amongst all of this Gilles runs his own label Brownswood Recordings. Set up in 1995 as an outlet for his favourite new discoveries. The label has seen him sign new talent such as Ben Westbeech, Jose James and Owiny Sigoma Band.
Following in the footsteps of Francois K, Jazzie B (Soul II Soul) and Fabio & Grooverider, Gilles brings a Masterpiece selection containing a typically wide ranging, devious selection that references twists and turns of Petersons career as a ground breaking, outer-national club and radio DJ. Its journey which begins at Dusk, heralds the Dawn and slips to the Twilight.
Gilles’ passion and enthusiasm is unfailing and deeply infectious and this is why Ministry of Sound is very proud to have him deliver a Masterpiece.
