A brilliant collection of spacey soul, funk, hip hop from Gilles Peterson – a well chosen set of modern classic, many of which originally premiered on his incomparable Gilles Peterson Worldwide radio show! The stylistic breadth is as great as the material is – and it's also amazing to see so many great artists and tracks in one place that in many cases first came to our attention thanks to Gilles! It ranges from the tripped out sound tapestries of Cinematic Orchestra, the boundless creativity of Jay Dee, spacey grooves from Sa-Ra Vikter Duplaix and Spacek, the proud Afro Funk Seun Kuti & Fela's Egypt 80, blunt funk hip hop from Madlb/Quasimoto, deeper gems from stars such as Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse and Jill Scott and more. A treasure trove of material from the 90s onward – chosen by Gilles Peterson himself! 27 tracks on the 2CD version: "All Things To All Men" by Cinematic Orchestra feat Roots Manuva, "Let's Ride" by Q-Tip, "Take The Box" by by Amy Winehouse, "Manhood" by Vikter Duplaix, "Just A Lil' Lovin" by Outlines, "Wesley Music" by RSL, "Many Things" by Seun Kuti & Fela's Egypt 80, "La Ritournelle" by Sebastien Tellier, "Too Fly" by Dwele, "Dollar" by Steve Spacek, "Rosebuds" by Sa-Ra, ""Emotions" by Benga, "Twice" by Little Dragon, "1 Thing" by Amerie, "Tides" by Nitin Sawhney and more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
