Gilles Peterson

Gilles Peterson (born c. 1964) is an influential DJ and
record-label owner from London, UK.

Through his labels Acid Jazz and Talkin' Loud
he has been associated with the careers
of countless well-known artists of the 1990s
such as Erykah Badu and Tony Rich.

He is also well known as a radio DJ: he used to have
a radio show on London's Kiss FM dance music
station, but was recruited to the BBC's youth-oriented
Radio 1 in 1998.

Peterson is known for his eclectic musical selections.
Though not as "anything goes" as the late John Peel,
he plays anything from dub and reggae
through jazz, nu-jazz, soul, neo soul, R&B
to drum and bass, house, broken beat, hip-hop and Jazz-funk.

Gilles Peterson, de stichter en bezieler van labels als Acid Jazz, Talkin' Loud en recentelijk Brownswood, werd in 1998 bij BBC1 binnengehaald omwille van zijn eclectische muzieksmaak.

In zijn radioprogramma op die goeie ouwe Beeb draait Peterson alles van dub and reggae tot jazz, nu-jazz, soul en neo soul, van R&B tot drum 'n bass, house, broken beat, hip-hop en jazz-funk.

'Gilles Peterson is dé referentie als het gaat om urban music. De woorden van deze BBC resident worden vaak gebruikt als quotes om platen te promoten - en niet zonder reden - en zijn stem is zonder meer hypnotiserend.
